Nick's Marathon Proposal!
After completing the 2017 London Marathon, Nick Edwards has a heart-warming surprise proposal for his girlfriend.
A unique ring for a unique occasion
When it comes to having a great story to accompany your marriage proposal, long distance runner Nick Edwards takes top spot for his surprise proposal.
Nick’s unique proposal to his girlfriend Sally came directly after crossing the finish line of the 2017 London Marathon, but Nick’s romantic plans didn’t begin with the start of the race; the design of the perfect ring was also part of the marathon plan.
Using Hatton By Design’s unique on-line ring-builder tool Nick was able to create his own perfect design. Although there are thousands of design combinations, our easy to use tool breaks the design process down into easy steps. Nick chose our Henrietta Diamond set engagement ring - one of our stunning Vintage style rings - set in Platinum. He then worked with the Hatton by Design team to select the right carat, colour, cut and clarity for the brilliant round centre diamond. His engagement ring was then crafted in our workshop in Hatton Garden and delivered to him ready for his proposal. To start designing your perfect engagement ring, you can find our engagement ring builder here.
In addition to using the online ring designer to select his preferred design, Nick was able to meet with Hatton By Design advisor, Steven Jenkins, to ensure his selection was the perfect choice and to answer any technical questions he had. “It was then that Nick told us of his plans to pop the question at the end of his London marathon run”
An elated Nick said afterwards, “She said yes!!! The ring is absolutely perfect! It was an amazing day it’s all a bit surreal!”
“I got around in 5 hours 32 minutes - would have liked to be 45 mins or so quicker but I saw a lot of people at St. John's ambulance who didn't make it and get a medal so can’t complain! It was an amazing atmosphere!”
Nick ran the Marathon to raise money for the charity Sense, which supports people who are deafblind, have sensory impairments or complex needs, to enjoy more independent lives.
Huge Congratulations to Nick and Sally on their exciting engagement! We wish them well as they begin their wedding planning journey - with a proposal as wonderful as this, we can’t wait to hear what surprises the wedding day has in store!
