New Zealand Surprise Proposal

To say that this day started like any other would not be true. While Sarah was in Spain, Fearghal had crafted an intricate plan and story so that Sarah genuinely had no idea that he was going to propose.. BUT bad weather threw them a plot twist as Sarah flew into Queenstown and the whole plan had to be adjusted and put on standby, until the following day. Sarah had been told all sorts of things to ensure she didn’t have any idea. She knew that they were doing something fun and that her beloved puppy couldn’t come. When we picked them up and flew them to the beautiful Earnslaw Burn, Sarah was guessing all sorts of things that could be happening, (including the adorable idea that they were being flown to a baby animal farm to pat puppies). She was asking who I was, and why Over the Top was dropping them off on top of a mountain, in snow, near a glacier and leaving them there while we took the door off the chopper and flew off… were they on Survivor?.. the Amazing Race?

But she was soon surprised as Fearghal dropped to one knee. It was emotional to see even from way above them in the chopper. The excitement and joy of both Fearghal and Sarah really can’t be put into words.

Sarah and Fearghal, I know you guys were on such a high that you have forgotten some of what happened, I hope these bring it all back for you, and will forever.
