Picnic Engagement {Chantelle + Nick}

We just love Chantelle and Nick’s engagement photos and engagement story. Plus, this gorgeous bride-to-be remains us of singer Lana Del Rey, which we love.

Chantelle and Nick have been dating since high school in 2001. Chantelle recalls, “he asked me out before the final bell when I was in year 10. We have been through a lot together, he’s my best friend, but we wanted to wait until we were
 both ready for this commitment.”

Nick proposed right before their 10-year anniversary. Chantelle explains, “We agreed to meet for lunch at my place, but at the last minute he changed and said he had organised a picnic with our puppy Bailey at a park near his house. Knowing that I would never say no to a picnic, I agreed to change plans and met him there. Unfortunately someone had parked me in and I was over an hour and a half late.”

When Chantelle arrived at Nicks house she found that “he had moved all the furniture in his living area and lit dozens of tea light candles a few hours earlier, scattered rose petals and a had a big bouquet of flowers waiting for me. When I entered the house He guided me in closed eyes, but I actually opened them too soon and saw ‘will you marry me?’ spelt out with the candles before he could get down on one knee. I was already in tears and said ‘yes’.”

Despite being late, Chantelle still got her romantic picnic. “As promised, I got my picnic – on the floor of the living room with a stunning yellow diamond engagement ring! Hand made by a jeweller friend using some of his late grandmothers gold melted to form the band. It was so special and so perfect,” says Chantelle.
