Well, we had to get married kinda quick because I was emigrating to Canada and the only way to get her in was if we were married. I was asked to transfer from London to Vancouver in mid September and I was gone 5 weeks later, so didnt have much time - particularly as I had a business trip to Japan in between and we had quite a long distance relationship too (London / Edinbugh) so couldnt just pop down the road to see each other. 2.5 weeks before I left, I then had to go to Germany for my best friends wedding, I was best man so didnt have a choice. She came down from EDI
on the Wednesday night, my parents were away. Eventually got in from LTN
around 11pm. I proposed on the couch in my parents living room. Was the best I could figure out in the circumstances as although she came to the wedding with me, we were up at 6am the next morning off to LHR
to meet my buddy and then we were seperated most of the time as I was doing prep stuff outside of the actual occasion, then sat on the head table and up front for signing duties during and it lasted 3 days and she flew straight out of FRA
the Sunday evening. She came down again 2 weeks later to say goodbye on my emigration flight, I knew I really wouldnt be in the state of mind for proposing then... I then saw again her once more for a couple of weeks when she came to Canada for the first time ever (already having commited to move to YVR
) for xmas before I came back to the UK to get married in March...
