A yellow foral filled arbour proposal

It was such an honour to be asked to create the stunning setting for TV Show 'Married at First Sight' star Keller to propose to his beautiful girl Katie.

His description of the proposal has melted all our hearts:

"She walked over to me waiting in front of the setting and I just let my heart go and said everything I was feeling, how in love I am how she is my world and my best friend how lucky I am to have her and the kids in my life.

Then I dropped down on one knee and popped the question “will you marry me?” ….... Boom she said yes and my heart filled with complete love and satisfaction it was in that moment my life felt so complete and I knew I have made the right choice in my life partner because this is going to be us for the rest of our lives and I couldn’t be happier or more certain of anything."

Tell us how you met, what drew you to each other and how you became a couple:  
Katie and I have been friends for so many years, I remember going to band camp with her in grade 4 and we played the clarinet together.
Through high school I used to admire her every day but always knew she was out of my league.

After serving in the military after 6 years and then going on a reality TV show (Married at First Sight Australia) where I learnt how to date properly, I gained a great confidence in myself.

There was a lot of adversity I had to face after what I went through with the TV situation. I was out one night having dinner with the boys and in walks this drop dead gorgeous brunette in a long white dress, I literally had to pick my jaw up off the floor and HAD to talk to her.

Turns out it was Katie and she remembered me, we got to talking as I found out she loves the Beatles and has a full Beatles side tattoo and coincidently I have a full Beatles sleeve tattoo.

I could feel the electricity and chemistry between us so I just grabbed her face and forced a kiss and she kissed me back, time stopped and I knew this was different to anything I had ever felt.
We have spent every single day together ever since

Tell us about the proposal

The 'Amazing Proposals' team were such a great help when it came to pulling off something extra special, I was planning on making this special for a long time but with my work I couldn’t put it all together myself.

I called the amazing team for help and honestly it was the best decision I could have very made for this process.
I told them Katie's favorite colour was yellow and that her favorite flowers were chrysanthemums, and we designed an elegant setting based on this.

We nutted out a plan to tell Katie that we had a photo shoot with each other as I had to get her to get the day off work, luckily I could use my TV story as an excuse as to why we needed a photo shoot.

Cara from Amazing Proposals, got me onto Elite car hires owner Don who was more than happy to get us some cars to escort us to the location and add to the unforgettable day. Cara also organised our wonderful Photographer and Videographer who captured the special moments perfectly.

On the day I was ready to go and got picked up by Don in the LamborghinI at 8am and Katie got picked up in the Mustang at 8.20am, giving me enough time to meet the team at the location and make sure everything was going to run perfectly.
I arrived to the most magical set up with Bublé playing in the background there were beautiful flowers and the most stunning arbour set up decorated with an abundance of yellow flowers!

The fine details made it so special even having our names on a “Will you marry me?’ sign, the beautiful yellow flowers with bees buzzing around them and the line of trees in the background, I got out of the car and my hart skipped a beat.
I just looked at it and thought yep this is it this is perfect I even let a tear slip. I got mic'd up by the videographers and waited for Katie to get there. We waited for a while and I thought oh no she had sussed this out and has turned around she's not coming!! but the team kept me calm and soon enough I saw the mustang driving down the road.  

Katie got there and was in full shock and I yelled out surprise baby this isn’t a shoot!!

She walked over to me waiting in front of the sign and I just let my heart go and said everything I felt, how in love I am how she is my world and my best friend how lucky I am to have her and the kids in my life and then dropped down on one knee and popped the question “will you marry me?” ….... Boom she said yes and my heart filled with complete love and satisfaction it was in that moment my life was now complete and I knew I have made the right choice in my life partner because this is going to be us for the rest of our lives and I couldn’t be happier or more certain of anything. The day was perfect and she was even better. I couldn’t have brought it all together without the team, they honestly helped me achieve the most perfect proposal to the one I love most.   
 

Tell us about the ring
The ring was hard because I wanted something different and unique that could represent how Katie makes me feel and that she’s not like anyone else I have met so a normal ring wouldn't do. I went to Prouds the Jewelers where my sister in law works and told her what I wanted.
We went through so many books and I got bits and pieces from all different rings and designed a custom ring which they made.
A heart of diamonds because she has the strongest heart to love me and the kids and honestly anyone else that comes into her life. Also the heart shape is unique like her.
I got pink diamonds put in it for the kids she has 2 of her own and I want 2 of my own. As soon as I saw the diamond I knew it was perfect it was the clearest and best grade money could get and I could not wipe the smile off my face. The hardest thing was when I picked up the ring not blowing the whole plan and proposing to her on the spot as I’m the worst with secrets.  

Finally, tell us about the kind of wedding you envisage 
Our wedding will be a very small family and friends event at my parents place on their property. We will have a live band who will be my mate max who plays in a Beatles cover band and is flying down from Darwin just for us. We envisage singing and dancing all through the night with the love of our family and close friends. I think there will be nice white chairs set up for everyone and some photo booths and a nice buffet. We will hire a bar to come and cater for everyone's beverage needs. It will be beautiful elegant and simple, just for us.
