Samantha and Ian met on a sponsored walk back in 2004. They started talking as they walked 16 miles together for the Huddersfield Giants Rugby League Club.
After nine years together, Ian proposed to Samantha as she sat on the sofa in her pyjamas. He told her he had a surprise, and she braced herself as his previous surprises have included door stops, a wheel barrow and an ornament of a dog.
He presented her with an advent calendar, as it was the 1st December. She opened the first door and found a beautiful diamond ring.
He got down on one knee and proposed. It was the perfect proposal as Samantha was genuinely caught off guard!
