Words from our couple
Anastasia’s favourite holiday is Easter, so there was a spontaneous decision to plan a getaway and visit Rome for Easter weekend. 2 days in the City of Love must’ve triggered something in Ivan, so by the time it was Easter Sunday, Ivan decided there and then that he’d like to propose to Anastasia, but first he had to buy the ring. Despite it being Easter Sunday in Rome, a city that dies out for regular Sundays, let alone when the Pope is about to deliver an annual speech on the famous St Peter’s Square, Ivan was determined to find the perfect ring and propose that day. 2 hours later and 1 angry bride-to-be, who was left at the hotel with no explanation as to where and for how long Ivan was going, the future groom returned with a McDonalds paper bag, offering food as a way of making peace. Little did Anastasia know that at the bottom of the bag under all the food, wrapped in white paper to look like one of the burgers, there was a red box from Cartier– to Ivan’s luck, for the first time in the Cartier’s over 100-year-old history their shop was open on Easter Sunday in Rome. If that’s not meant to be, then what is?
