Introducing the newly engaged Duncan & Melissa! The pair met 3 years ago when they both played Rugby League for the same football club. They quickly became good friends and after 6 months of dating finally made it official. Not long after they moved in together with Melissa’s 2 young girls and have never looked back.
With months of planning, Duncan had organised dinner at their favourite restaurant the Hunter Valley Circa 1876 and they stayed at the Chateau Elan at ‘The Vintage’ Pokolbin. Cassie the events coordinator at Circa set up Melissa’s favourite flowers, peonies on their dinner table and having single stem red roses and fresh rose petals spread around a table with pictures from the couples first date displayed.
Mel walked in the room and started talking about how romantic what Duncan had planned was, but when she turned around he was down on one knee and asked Melissa to marry him. Duncan said, “I mostly got tears which was enough of a yes for me!”. After a beautiful 3 course meal, the couple headed back to their hotel room for more wine and to continue the celebrations. Congratulations Duncan & Melissa!
