My own “personal love story” unfolded with a young man whom I had met while on a climbing expedition to Mt Kenya. It didn’t really start off on any romantic note but I guess cupid had other intentions!

Fast forward and Paul and I were engaged a year and a half later and got married 10 months later….and trust Paul to have planned the surprise engagement at an indoor rock climbing centre…I guess we did have some history in hiking and so that made sense 🙂 That marked the beginning of a series of plans towards our wedding day….and trust me we had a few traditional ceremonies even before the wedding date to take into account.

Receiving the engagement ring after saying yes…..it was definitely a very well thought out and planned surprise! 🙂
