Claire and Matthew – Vegas, Champagne and Diamonds
Jet-set and flying high, Claire had the most amazing reason to be walking on air in Las Vegas. The bright city lights had called her and partner Matthew for the trip of a lifetime – sealed by a dazzling diamond!
In it for the long haul, the couple had been together for 7 years, having just bought their first home together ahead of the holiday. Leaving their nest, Claire and Matthew touched down in Las Vegas (we’d have been singing Viva Las Vegas all the way there!) last August and the moment called for something sparkling.
Champagne was brought to the table at The Eiffel Tower Restaurant – the place for wining and dining with spectacular views of the famed Bellagio Fountains.
Little did Claire know, but, on the journey over, Matthew had experienced a little ring drama: He’d safely stowed the box away in his suitcase, but, it was the last the come around the luggage carousel and had burst open!
Having kept his cool, romance was now on the menu and, over dinner, Matthew chose the perfect moment to ask Claire to marry him – cue hysterical sobbing, happy tears and an elated YES!
Entirely ecstatic, the newly engaged couple took to the rest of their break, celebrating the next three weeks exploring the Vegas strip and enjoying a detour to paradise in Cancún. This retreat to the beach was the perfect spot to share moments together in secret and for Claire to daydream about becoming Mrs Adkin…
The two are dreaming up their wedding day… Having set the date for 2018, they are planning a fabulous celebration, reflecting their love of travel, dedicated to wanderlust. Many more magical experiences are sure to follow! ✨
