Katie and Brad met when she moved to Queensland to work at Dreamworld for the summer. Katie’s cousin put her in touch with her friend Brad who lived in the area, and the pair hit it off right away. They still aren’t sure when it developed into a relationship, but they both realised they had too many shared interests for it to go any other way.
After around five years together, the couple went to a vintage fair before going to Byron Bay to look at the lighthouse. They were looking out to sea when Katie turned around and realised Brad was nowhere to be seen, until she spotted him down on one knee!
He presented her with a gorgeous antique sapphire and diamond engagement ring from 1949. The first thing Katie did was laugh and say, ‘Oh, you idiot’ in shock! But she still accepted the ring, which Brad had kept hidden in his sock all day.
