Kent-based couple Alison Buckley and Tom Perry met online two years ago and have been inseparable ever since. “I truly believe when you know, you know. And although we both are now 43, it has been worth the wait finding one another – not only as lovers, but friends and companions in all walks of life,” Alison shares.
The couple had spoken about getting engaged for some time, but Alison wanted to wait until she and Tom found the right ring. “Late last year I googled my favourite diamond shape, carat and colour to get an idea of what was out there and in the search results was my dream ring – the Luna in white gold by 77 Diamonds. I excitedly told Tom who also loved the look of the ring, so we booked an appointment in Mayfair at 77 Diamonds to discuss what would be possible with our budget.”
Once the time had come for the proposal, Tom whisked Alison away on a surprise trip to Iceland, where the couple stayed in a boutique hotel in the middle of Reykjavik. The pair spent a few days touring the city, before the proposal took place.
Tom took Alison to the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa and called her up onto the bridge which overlooks the lagoon. And now it was time for Alison’s very own fairy-tale moment. Tom got down on one knee, while onlookers clapped and cheered. “It was truly magical, and I will never forget this moment.”
The couple are currently busy planning their wedding which will be in May 2021 in Sorrento, Italy.
Congratulations Tom and Alison, we wish you both a lifetime of happiness!
