A very wet and rainy day at a gym hosting a charity run organised by Simon but with a twist....a flash mob choir starting out of nowhere followed by an engagement proposal. Why at a gym you might ask; An unassuming proposal venue was exactly his plan. A place that he, his partner (sort of important that she’s there), family and friends would all be at to help run, serve drinks etc and support those running was a crafty choice.
Arriving up at the gym I knew what was going to happen but I didn’t know who knew or when or how it was going to kick off. First point, try and find Simon...
People who I knew there, including those there for the run and the unsuspecting proposee (is that even a word?), Gemma, thought I had been (in her words) “roped in to take photos by Simon”. Well....yes I was, but not of what they thought. It was all very cloak and dagger and I didn’t know who I could talk to about it for risk of ruining it... the suspense was killing me! I was fit to burst...I hate having secrets!! So I just did what I do usually and hid behind the camera taking photos.
After eventually finding Simon I asked how he was feeling... he just nodded and grinned nervously ... an air horn would signal the choir to start singing...no turning back now sunshine!
