A man wrote 14 letters to his girlfriend during 3 years they’re in love. But these hide a secret message. It comes out a MARRIAGE PROPOSAL in which the first letters of each note combined, spells out ‘Will you marry me?’
Candice Catherine received 14 love letters from her now husband Timothy during three years in love
Every love note started with a capital letter that, if they were placed all together, spelt out the words ‘Will you marry me’.
Timothy sent his girlfriend the first note after only a week of dating.
‘Tim and I didn’t live far away from each other but we sent letters because the idea of having our hearts poured out in the form of paper meant we had tangible memories to look back on,’
Catherine spoke to Daily Mail Australia.
‘I am very difficult to surprise so this totally caught me off guard!’
Timothy took now wife a surprise holiday on Hamilton Island and then a picnic at Watsons Bay, the place that they first met before he revealed the letters’ hidden message.
‘I woke up on the morning of December 16, 2015, with a letter next to me instructing me to get dressed and to only come out when I’m fully ready. As soon as I opened the door, I found rose petals and candles everywhere – my heart skipped a beat and I knew it was coming.’
‘He sat me down in the living room with all the letters that he had written to me on the table. We read them out one by one reliving the memories of our dating years. After we read all of them he then carefully arranged the letters and asked me to look at them,’ Candice said.
When she finally noticed the hidden message Candice said she burst into tears right away. But she admits this is the kind of grand romantic gesture her husband is good at.
‘On our wedding day Tim sang a song he’d written for me two months after we started dating. So he’d been saving this piece of music for years,’ the 25-year-old said.
‘Tim is always like this. He’s genuinely a thoughtful and romantic kind of guy,’ she added.
The couple first met on Maroubra Beach in 2009 after their mutual friends organised a hang out.
They barely spoke to each other the day when they first met but chance encounters over the next four years, and a six-month stint overseas that saw them separated, led them to reunite as a couple in 2013.
‘Even though it took a long time for our friendship to blossom into love we are so grateful that we got to become friends first. The fact that we knew each other so well made the relationship feel so secure,’ Candice said.
‘We always look back and say we made the right choice by being good friends first.’
