I met my partner on match.com shortly after I'd relocated from Cheshire to Oxfordshire.

I decided to propose in St Ives, Cornwall on the 3rd of May in 2010. We were out for a walk around The Island, a beautiful peninsula in St Ives with an old stone church at the top.

We were sat by the church looking down on the sea and beach, with the sun shining and waves crashing. It was a perfect time and place.

I got down on one knee and asked "will you marry me?". It was then that she uttered the two words I was longing to hear... "what, seriously?".  

I had to ask the question again, while still on bended knee. 

Finally, and thankfully, she said yes!
