← Year since America Wedding and update → Job, Australia & Getting Married Posted on Monday, February 17, 2014 by Tony Hi everyone my job has been extended in Wellington till September this year and hopefully will be extended for another year. So I am currently busy looking for flats/apartments in Wellington. Also some other exciting news is that I proposed to my girlfriend now my fiancé and we are getting Married on the 22 of February 2014 (so this weekend). Anyone is welcome to come to the ceremony at the Headingly Centre (Grace Church) at 2.30, please be seated by 2.15. Check out our website for more details http://www.tonyandvanessa.com/. So I have been busy with planing this. I went home to nelson for two weeks over Christmas which was nice to see my family and better not forget my wonderful fiancé. We did some camping, ate lots of food and did some wedding planing. I also had my wisdom tooth out just before Christmas when I came back to nelson but it didn’t stop me eating. I better say something about how I proposed bla bla. It was when we were in Australia for Aaron’s 21. I had organised for a group of us to go to Gold Coast in Australia and do the fun park rides as we said that we would take Aaron back when he was well to do them. The first time we went he was too little to go on most of the rides and the next few times we went he wasn’t able to go either, so we told him that when he got better and had the all clear that we would go back and go on them. So back to the engagement story. We had Vanessa’s 25 birthday in Australia as well as Aaron’s 21st, as her birthday is two days before Aaron’s. So I decided to do on 28 of November which is in between Vanessa’s and Aaron’s birthdays. I said to Vanessa that I would like to go for a walk on the beach before we headed off to the funparks for the day as we didn’t get to spend much time together alone on her birthday. I took the camera too as I said I wanted to take some photos like some that were taken when me and Aaron were on the Gold Coast beach looking towards Surfers Paradise. Little did she know that I was I was going to propose to her then. We were walking along the beach and I told her to walk ahead slightly more and look towards Surfers to get a photo and that was when I got down on one knee with the ring in my hand. I asked her to turn around and then poped the question, she said yes!!! So there you have it the story of how I proposed to my lovely beautiful fiancé. We had a great time with friends and family in Australia and did all the theme parks as well as lots of shopping. As soon as the wedding is over we are going to start planning for the next medical trip to America later this year. PS One last thing, there are items that have been generously donated by Weta and even some that have been personally signed. These are slowly being put up on eBay soon so keep an eye out for them to come up, so watch this space.
