    Popped the question at the weekend

    I took Laura away for a surprise weekend on Friday...

    The surprise was me popping the question at the base of the white lady waterfall at Lydford Gorge

    We had an amazing weekend, so here's a few pics so you can share our happiness

    I booked us at The Coachouse Hotel in Tavistock Devon where her first surprise was the bed!!


    And the view.


    The next morning we went to Lydford Gorge, which is an amazing natural waterfall that's breath taking and pretty treacherous to walk at some points























    'The White Lady Waterfall'...this was taken just before I asked her to stand over on the rock at the foot of the waterfall


    And when she turned round I was on one knee holding open the ring box asking her to marry me.

    This is my future wife and her engagement ring, (still a little stunned )


    And the happy couple enjoying a gentle sail down the river

    Many cogratualtions Lee, I bet you were relieved the good lady said yes!
    great setting to pop the question

    Great pics of some beautiful landscape/scenery, but I would say that as I only live 3 miles down the road from where you went

    Sorry to be nosey, was the hotel you stayed right in Tavistock or in an outlying hamlet?
