When Kristy’s partner Jock planned a surprise trip for the two of them, he purposely left Kristy in the dark until the moment they found themselves at the airport check-in desk.
After two days in sunny Hamilton Island, Jock told Kristy to wear something nice as they would be going out for lunch. But when a van picked them up to take them to the airport, Kristy began to suspect something.
“We would be riding in a helicopter and there was another ‘tourist’ on board with us. I thought it was a little strange but it was peak season and I thought it was probably very booked out,” Kristy told us.
As the helicopter flew them over the picturesque Whitehaven Beach, Kristy looked out the window and saw a big proposal banner within a heart drawn in the sand. By then, the ‘tourist’ was revealed to be a photographer who took photos of Kristy and Jock as they landed on the beach.
After a champagne-filled picnic, Kristy and Jock returned to their hotel to find more champagne and rose petals, before wrapping up their dream day drinking cocktails at the hotel swim-up bar and listening to live acoustic music.
“I can’t believe the effort he went to and I seriously feel like the luckiest girl in the world! I could not dream of a better proposal. Our relationship began on a beach and so has the next chapter of our lives.”
