On the 10th of February 2016 my husband to be officially proposed. We decided to get engaged just after New Years but wanted to wait to tell our friends and families until after we had a ring and Eanan being a romantic want to arrange a surprise proposal.
Eanan proposed in a suite at the G hotel after dinner with a gold love knot.
The love knot is an emblem of love and constancy of the lover’s bond, as the pattern has no beginning or end point. It is also known as the marriage or Hercules knot. It used to be incorporated into protective girdles worn by brides, which is a likely origin for the phrase “tie the knot”.
Knowing I hate being given flowers Eanan got me a gold plated rose.
The staff at the G were great and made the night very special with free spa treatments, cupcakes and sparkling wine.
I enjoyed the full Irish the next morning a bit more though.
