Real Wedding: Carl + Giz


A romantic day trip to propose to his girlfriend Giz quickly turned into a ‘comedy of errors’ for Carl (as he describes it). He had planned to pop the question while snorkelling at Florence Bay, but the casual cycle there proved too challenging because of the journey’s steep hills. So the pair hired a car, but somehow managed to lose the snorkelling gear along the way. And when they got to their destination, Carl realised he had left the ring in the car – 40mins away from where they had trekked to. Exasperated from the events of the day, Carl blurted out, ‘I was going to ask you to marry me.’ Giz was perplexed by his past tense ‘was’, but quickly replied with an excited ‘Yes, yes, yes!’ It wasn’t the smoothest of days for the couple, but it’s a memory that they will always share with fondness – and a good giggle!
