Stephanie and Rob’s ‘Relaxing Spa Day’ Proposal Story

At Charles Nobel, we recently launched our proposal story competition, asking couples to share one of their unique experiences with us for a chance to win £100 towards their wedding rings.

After a lot of deliberation, we chose a winner but we felt that Stephanie and Rob’s story stood out as well. That’s why we are so happy to share it on out our blog and have offered Stephanie a professional clean and polish of her engagement ring so that is its perfect for the big day.


How they met

Stephanie and Rob met four years ago on a dating website. After texting for a couple of weeks, Stephanie was shocked to find out that Rob had never seen Game of Thrones and instead of ‘ghosting’ him, she decided to take it upon herself to educate him on the world of Westeros. After inviting him to watch it with her with a cup of tea, he has never left!

How he asked

Unbeknownst to Stephanie, Rob had planned an idyllic proposal at the Lake District atop a mountain overlooking Richard’s Chair. Sounds perfect right? Unfortunately Stephanie had a dream a few weeks before that Rob was going to propose at the Lake District and the whole plan lost its magic.

Thinking on his feet Rob, devised another strategy. After receiving a Christmas gift of a spa day at Carey’s Manor, the perfect opportunity presented itself. Rob booked an overnight stay and dinner; asking the hotel to send a fake email saying that they had been upgraded so Stephanie wasn’t suspicious.

After a relaxing spa day followed by dinner and cocktails, Stephanie and Rob went back to their room. Rob had set up the patio with lights, flowers and champagne. Thinking that this was another gift from the hotel, Stephanie was surprised to turn around to find Rob on one knee! Stephanie had dreamt of this moment since they met and was overwhelmed with happiness. The two are planning a Christmas wedding at the same location this Christmas.


The ring

Stephanie’s ring is a white gold three stone diamond ring (pictured below). You can shop this look with our 18ct White Gold Three Stone Diamond Ring.


We couldn’t be more pleased for Stephanie and Rob and are thrilled that they have since chosen Charles Nobel   for their wedding rings.
