I can’t decide which is more romantic; the way in which Tom proposed to Philippa or his determination to find her the perfect ring!!!
It all started when Philippa went shopping in London with her friend and found the perfect ring. A ring she imagined on her finger if there was maybe an important question to go with it! Or…..maybe she could just treat herself, it was an unusual ring. She left the ring where it was but not before she found her phone and took a photo. After sharing all the details with Tom and showing him the picture on her phone; Tom had an idea.
The ring became a distant memory for Philippa but this wasn’t the case for Tom. Unbeknown to Philippa, he set off in search of the ring that she had dreamed of, after weeks of searching, he found the said ring and kept it under wraps until the right moment; which happened to be 7 months later!!! Yep you read that correctly; Tom kept the ring secret for 7 months, not only that, he managed to conceal the ring on a trip to a friends wedding in Italy. They took a few days for themselves in Florence taking in the sights, when Philippa caught sight of the ‘Cats Eye Ring’ she had seen all those months previously, along with THE long awaited question from Tom “Will you marry me’
