It was a weekend getaway to Melbourne that did it all…”Tyson surprised me with a weekend getaway at Crown Metropol, under the premise we were meeting up with his business partner and wife for dinner and drinks to celebrate Christmas/End of the year. He told me they had a room booked for the weekend and we were meeting them there for a drink before dinner. Unbeknownst to me, he led me to one of the loft suites where he then pulled the key out of his pocket and opened the door for me to find the entrance to the suite covered with rose petals, a bouquet of red roses on the table and a bottle of my favourite champagne on ice at the bar. Still thinking we were meeting our friends out for dinner, I was surprised again when one of the waiters from Rockpool knocked on the door and proceeded to serve us dinner and my favourite dessert (passionfruit pavlova).
Following dinner, we spent some time out on the balcony admiring the view of the city, when I turned around to find Tyson on one knee, ring in hand asking me to marry him! So eager to call my family and friends to tell them the fabulous news, he convinced me to just call my family and to wait to tell my girlfriends in person so I could show them the ring. I knew I’d be seeing them in a couple of days at a lunch catch up we had planned, so I agreed to wait.
The next evening Tyson took me to the champagne bar for a drink after dinner, as I entered the bar and turned the corner, I was taken by surprise to see my closest girlfriends all sitting a booth waiting to surprise me and celebrate! Tyson had arranged for them to be there, knowing how much it would mean to me to share this exciting news with them all!!
