Our love story has the makings of a (somewhat cheesy) Rom-Com.

As young kids, boy and girl live next door in a small-town suburb. Their parents become friends. One family moves away but the children must endure regular visits to the others house. The rebellious redhead prefers to play Playstation than talk to girl. The girl is always studying. Girl moves to Wellington for university and the only person she knows there is a certain boy from her childhood. They meet up. At our wedding, we will have been together five years.

And cue the happy ending.

We first met in Canada in 2002. We had both booked impulsive trips on an adventure travel bus through the Rockies.

Michael had a ticket for the Wales Vs All Blacks test in Cardiff a few weeks after our trip. I was living in Cardiff and said he could crash at my house for the weekend - he stayed for 6 months!

Unbeknown to us, we had both lived in London a street apart from each other 3 years earlier. Im sure his drunken behaviour would have terrorised me on the night bus and now I find myself about to marry him!

It was my 24th birthday. When I got to Gav’s place, Gav instructed me to go upstairs to the living room and that he would come up shortly. I asked why but he just firmly re-instructed me to go upstairs, so I did.

At the top of the stairs was a little note that read "follow the petals". A trail of red rose petals began at the note and led to the living room. In the middle of the room was a heart of petals and inside was a long beautiful letter from Gav saying how much he loved me and how he wanted to be with me for the rest of his life.

At the end of the note were the words "please turn around", down on one knee, Gav held a ring out...he asked me to marry him, of course the answer was yes.

The Proposal.

A beautiful summers day, 31/01/2009, saw me eating brunch at the waterfront with a friend, who for weeks before had insisted we get together. While at brunch she surprised me with a helicopter ride that she had won via her work (travel agent) and wanted to share with me as a belated birthday gift.

On the helicopter I was shown various sights of wellington and told we would land to view Seals out past Red Rocks. To my complete surprise when we landed it wasnt Seals I saw, but Michael, my boyfriend of 6 years, ring in hand.
