My partner and I met on a night out for my friends 18th birthday in 1999. 

The plan was always to propose on a gondola on Valentine's Day whilst we were in Venice celebrating the Festival of Love. It actually happened on Friday the 13th in the hotel room. Kerry was taking her makeup off in the bathroom and was declaring her love and saying how happy she was.

I knocked on the door, and when she opened it, I was down on one knee! It ended up being all about the timing, and less about the beautiful city we were in.
