Recently we put a call out to all newly engaged Chupi couples and asked them to share the details of their engagement with us. We are very excited to introduce the latest couple in our series, Matthew & Huw, who tell us about their gorgeous engagement on Murlough Beach in Co. Down.

“Huw and I originally met on a dating app. I had planned the proposal for a few months and I knew that I wanted to propose somewhere special.

Growing up in my family, we used to go to Murlough Beach in Newcastle, Co. Down a lot for Sunday walks. I knew it was an ideal location as it’s right by the coast and you can see the Mourne Mountains in the background.”

“Between walking from the car to the beach, my heart was pounding, but the idea of proposing to my partner felt right. Halfway through our walk, I started to slow down, said a few words and got down on one knee. Thankfully he said yes!!!”

“It was actually one of my best friends that was aware of the Chupi brand and introduced it to me. I had a look at the various rings online and as soon as I saw them in person, I knew that a Chupi engagement ring was right for us. Being a same sex couple, I wanted something a bit different and special.”

“The history of Chupi as a brand and the design of the ring drew me to Chupi for the engagement ring – it was a very easy decision to make. My purchasing experience was excellent and I visited the Atrium store. The sales assistant was fantastic and made me feel very welcome. I had whittled it down to 3 rings from looking online, however I knew which ring was the one as soon as I saw it in person!”

“When I look at my Chupi ring now, I think of happiness, love and hope.  Initially, we had intended to wait to start planning the wedding in March following our trip to Australia in February.. We already have a draft guest list in play and we’re going to check out a potential wedding venue next weekend!”

If a Chupi engagement ring or Chupi promise piece was a part of your engagement, we’d love to hear from you and feature you on The Chupi Blog. You can find out more details on this exciting series here.
