A beautiful proposal in Venice

There’s nothing more that we love than hearing from our couples once they have proposed, and how it happened. We were delighted to hear from Richard and Toni recently, following Richard’s romantic proposal in Venice.

After two years together, Richard and Toni were used to jetting off on a city break together. But it was this one that was going to be life-changing for the couple from Halifax.

Planned in secret, Richard had already chosen and bought the ring from Lister Horsfall in Halifax. With help from Sarah, our diamond expert, Richard chose a stunning piece. All he had to do was wait for the right time to propose!

Toni recalls “We were enjoying lunch at a Michelin-starred restaurant near St Mark’s Square, enjoying a glass of champagne and listening to an incredible pianist. The atmosphere was magical”.

Richard asked what Toni thought about spending the rest of their lives together, to which Toni replied that it sounded like a proposal! It was. Richard then got down on one knee, revealed the ring and asked simply “Will you marry me?”.

After such an incredibly romantic proposal, the couple toasted the children and what will become their blended family. We wish them both future happiness and look forward to seeing them again as their wedding journey continues.
