When you meet via a dating app only to find out you work for the same company AND live within 1km from each other AND share mutual friends.. it has all the makings of a modern day romance! Emily shares their beautiful Family Christmas proposal story…but don’t forget to also see their beautiful Wedding in the Blue Mountains.

Three years later, Steve proposed on Christmas Day in front of my family opening presents. My sister was visiting from London and had offered to do my hair and makeup that morning which was lovely, yet unusual – I usually have to beg her.

Steve was so relaxed and I had no idea that the oversized gift box I was opening had the most gorgeous ring and note inside. I was thrilled.

We had been drinking cups of tea but we quickly moved onto champagne.  We celebrated well into the evening by the pool.  It was really special to celebrate this momentous occasion with the whole family (as we live in all parts of the country and world)!
