Our love story
Mark and I first met in 2006 when Mark’s friend and business partner, Rob, was dating one of my best friends, Krystyna. Rob and Krystyna’s relationship didn’t materialize into anything serious, but our friendship developed over a six-year period and in Spring 2012 we eventually got together. We moved in together later that year and got engaged in September 2015 during a 3-week trip sailing around the Grenadines.
With the help of the crew and several friends, Mark organized an incredible proposal. It took place on the island of Mystique and the proposal involved a romantic walk down the beach in the sun to a gorgeous cove where a simple picnic blanket with a bottle of champagne chilling in an ice bucket and two glasses were waiting for us. As we arrived and got comfortable, Mark got down one knee and presented me with a beautiful pear-shaped diamond ring. I burst into tears and instantly said ‘yes!’.
We spent the next hour relaxing and reminiscing about our years together so far, before watching the sunset and stars come out. We then went back to the yacht where the crew and our friends were waiting for us to pop more champagne before all going for dinner at the island’s famous Firefly restaurant, where we partied and danced around the grand piano until the early hours.
