Sometimes even your best laid plans can go awry. So Jack’s plan, to propose to his lovely girlfriend on a bay opposite Sydney Harbour, and have me surreptitiously photograph it, seemed like the perfect idea. Of course, a wild and totally unexpected, afternoon thunderstorm, spoiled that plan.
After a furious flurry of text messages between the both of us to figure out Plan B. Jack decided to move the proposal a few kilometres north under a sheltered pavilion, at Balmoral Beach.
It was there, with the rain still pouring, and me as a witness, that he got down on one knee.
