Charlotte Church has broken the news that she and long-term partner Gavin Henson are finally planning to marry after he popped the question 6 weeks ago.
In an exclusive magazine interview the Voice of an Angel revealed all about the romantic proposal, and their plans to marry as soon as possible.
The mother-of-two described how Gavin surprised her with a helicopter ride to a hotel in Truro, Cornwall on the morning of her birthday. The singer added that she was suffering from a bad hangover at the time after celebrating her 24th birthday the night before.
After enjoying a romantic lunch at the waterfront hotel, Charlotte assumed the surprise trip had been a birthday treat. It wasn’t until the couple went for a stroll and Gavin dropped to one knee, that the real reason for the grand gesture emerged.
The rugby star described how he’d brought the ring some weeks earlier while the family were holidaying in Dubai. According to Charlotte the 2 carat heart shaped diamond sparkler is her idea of the perfect engagement ring.
Speaking about their wedding plans, the Welsh couple who’ve been together for five years, say they don’t plan to waste any time in actually tying the knot. However the big day itself won’t be a celebrity affair as they plan to invite approximately 100 guests, all of which will be close family and friends.
The bride and groom also want their young children involved in the day as much as possible and plan to have their two-and-a-half year old daughter Ruby as a flower girl, and their one-year-old son Dexter as a page boy.
