Candice & Gareth[dropcap color=”rosy”]G[/dropcap]areth and I are high school sweethearts and have been dating since the age of 15- we met in High School and our love just flourished from then onwards. Gareth would often go away on rugby tours and one night in the back yard he pointed to the middle star of orions belt and said that if i was ever lonely when he was away i just need to look at the middle star and know that he is thinking of me and since that day the middle star has been our star, jump to 9 years later and in Oct 11 we had been dating for 10 years and he still had not asked the question – I was starting to loose my mind!! until the weekend of our anniversary (10 years) i hired out a bed and breakfast for the Friday night and we had a romantic dinner to celebrate where i made jokes about how it would be funny if he popped the question whilst his mom was away- i didn’t even think he would pop the question because his mom was away in France and I thought he would wait for her to come back (honestly by this point i had come to terms that I would always be a bridesmaid and never a bride 🙂 )
Ok so we have dinner and the Saturday morning arrives and he tells me to dress nicely because we are going for a picnic but he had a surprise for me first and off we drive to the planetarium in cape town- i had never been so i was so excited- but we walk into the main planetarium and there is no one there but the projector operator and i thought well this is weird no one else is here but ok this is nice. the show starts and it is all about orions belt and the middle star and how important the star is and on and on the show goes and eventually on the screen in the stars a story of how Aquarius (my fiance) had his heart stolen by Gemini (me) and how the galaxy could not keep them apart and in BIG WRITING IT SAID: “Candice will you be my best friend, the mother of my children and my wife” WILL YOU MARRY ME? I turned to look at him in shock and amazement and he was down on one knee (which the poor guy just had operated on due to a rugby injury) and he proposed to me!!I was among the stars literally and physically We then left the planetarium (i messages all my friends) and went to Kirstenbosch Gardens where all our friends and family were waiting for us , Gareth has arranged champagne, sushi, snacks and all our friends!This was an amazing day that I will never forget.
