My partner and I met because we had a few mutual friends and eventually began speaking online, which then lead to our first date on Christmas eve in Manchester.

He had told me we were going out for a meal and our dog was being picked up there. I had always told him, that when he did propose, I wanted my dog to be there.

We ended up in Sheffield town centre with a booking at Browns, our favourite restaurant next to the peace gardens and fountains. 

He ended up getting down on one knee next to the fountains with our dog there to lend a helping paw :)

Also, at the time there were fireworks going off just around the corner which he tried to take credit for but they were just really good timing. 

Our dog was then picked up by a family member, and we went for our meal at Browns, where he had already spoken to them and we had champagne waiting on our table. After this, I found out that he had contacted my manager at work to ask if I could finish early in order to get ready for all this, which luckily he did. It was a perfect proposal, and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
