Stuck for unique proposal ideas? How about making it a breakfast option?

Richard Sibbald knew no ordinary question-popping would do for his girlfriend Aimee Burns. The couple, aged 34 and 28 respectively, first met while on holidays in Thailand and again ran into each other on a snow trip, where they then had their first date.

This is where they returned for the big moment, Aimee unknowingly about to become Richard’s fiancée. “Upon reviewing the menu I came across a new addition to the list – AIMEE’S SPECIAL,” explains Aimee. Apparently that included some praise for the relationship, compliments on her nature, with a side of “Will you marry me?”

They married at their formal wedding on April 13, 2017, at InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, followed by a reception at Southport Yacht Club on the Gold Coast. “I don’t think there was much time throughout the night that we both weren’t grinning from ear to ear,” says the bride.

The newlyweds and soul mates are enjoying married life in their hometown of Helensvale after a honeymoon. “We are each other’s best friend. We want to share and experience everything together but at the same time are more than happy with staying in every night in each other’s company over going out,” smiles Aimee.

“Slow down!” laughs Aimee. “I’ve been told I practically ran down the aisle.”
