Our Love Story Rebekah & Rob (c) Stories Of I Do (18)

You know those too-good-to-be-true scenes in romantic films that you never expect to actually happen in real life? Well the proposal story that goes with today’s featured engagement shoot is just like that!

We can’t believe the planning and romantic levels Rob went to in order to make his proposal to Rebekah so incredibly and utterly special. We seriously hope there are more Robs out there for ladies yet to get engaged!

Keen not to spoil the tale, we’ll let Rebekah explain how their love story began and built up to one of the most epic proposals we’ve had the pleasure of featuring on the blog. Rebekah, you’re one lucky lady!

rebekah says: The engagement was a complete surprise to me. I had just been offered a new job and Rob decided he was taking me away to celebrate. He gave me a list of items to bring and the rest was a mystery.

We arrived at the stunning Patrick Brompton Hall in North Yorkshire, late on Friday night and were greeted by the owners and their beautiful Great Danes; still I had no idea of what was ahead.

The Saturday was a glorious day and Rob drove us to the dales and pulled out some riding boots from the back of his car. He had arranged a horse riding lesson and a trek through the dales (something which I had always wanted to do). We then went to Aysgarth Falls and headed back to Patrick Brompton before dinner.

Just before we left for dinner Rob told me that he had spoken to the owners and we were allowed to look around the grounds as they were away from the house. We walked in front of the beautiful house and down a path framed with trees either side and came to a white door that lead to a walled garden. I opened the door and the sun was shining on a picturesque rose garden and I could see an easel between the roses.

As we walked up to the easel I could see pictures from our time at university, Rob lead me round the box hedge to two more easels filled with pictures of our time together. Here, he knelt down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

Rob arranged for us to have an engagement shoot following the proposal (another surprise to me!). He thought that we would want to remember such a fantastic weekend – and he was right.
