We would love to hear your story! ๐Ÿ˜Š What led you to Springkell? She said "๐˜๐ž๐ฌ!" ๐Ÿ’ A lovely couple, Jo and Jonny, joined us last month to celebrate their engagement, and we would like to share their wonderful romantic story with you โค๏ธ Jonny: โ€œI took my girlfriend (Jo) away for a romantic weekend, to what she thought was North Yorkshire. As we toured on the Sunday, heading towards the North Lakes, I told her to close her eyes and take a nap to recover from the eveningโ€™s merriments and the previous dayโ€™s long drive. As she gently drifted away to the sounds of Classic FM and the rumble of the M6, I drove us to our beloved Scotland and straight into Gretna Green. When she awoke, to say she was surprised was an understatement! We were not met by open expanses of water but a โ€œWelcome to Scotlandโ€ sign I convinced her we were stopping for a cream tea, but of course I had other plans! I popped into the gift shop and begged the lovely lady to help me find a temporary ring that would fit her in under 4 minutesโ€ฆ. and she did! After sipping our tea in the lovely Scottish Autumn sunshine (whilst trying not to let Jo see my saucer shaking) I suggested that we have a few pictures taken by the Gretna Green sign outside the Old Blacksmiths Forge. It was at this point I took my chance! I pretended that my back was playing up and went to the ground, falling onto one knee to ask the love of my life to marry me. Luckily, she said yes (I pretty much knew because she had hinted a few times ๐Ÿ˜‚) But there it was, we were just laughing and hugging and kissing like teenagers. I knew that we needed somewhere extremely special to stay that night, so with shaking hands I browsed online and found the most beautiful hotel I had ever seen in my life. I booked the honeymoon suite and the staff were incredible. The room, the food, just the whole experience was one we both will never forget. We cannot wait to get back to Springkell. They will be a massive part of our wedding plans and we also plan to return as soon as possible for a long weekend, because it really is our new favourite place! . . . . #engagement #wedding #bride #love #prewedding #engaged #bridetobe #engagementring
