Roy and Melinda first met through Melinda’s ex and became friends. They gradually lost contact until one day four years later, when they ran into each other again as though it was meant to be. The couple dated for three years before getting engaged.
Whilst they were on a family holiday, Roy asked Melinda if she’d go for a walk with him as everyone else was skiing. Their youngest daughter asked to come along too, and after they reached a high point on the mountain Roy got down on one knee in the snow and proposed. Their daughter was able to capture the moment on camera.
He presented her with a beautiful engagement ring that once belonged to his grandmother. It featured blue sapphires (Melinda’s favourite stone) and diamonds, and came with a matching pair of earrings! The next 15 months were spent planning their dream wedding.
