Elizabeth and Chris met in a bar on her 20th birthday. They got to know each other by chatting on MSN Messenger, and started dating just after Chris’s 20th birthday later that year.
The couple were together for just over six years before Chris proposed, despite the best efforts of Elizabeth’s friends to get it to happen sooner! The pair were travelling Europe together on a working holiday, and Elizabeth suspected a proposal might happen on her birthday in Paris, or maybe on Chris’s birthday as they watched the Northern Lights, before losing hope.
She was totally stunned when he got down on one knee on top of a ski slope in Switzerland, and presented her with a stunning, classic diamond solitaire. When they got home they switched the diamond to one Elizabeth’s grandmother had left for her, saving the original one for an eternity ring!
