One giant leap for Nadia

One giant leap for Nadia

Wedding proposal joy for Rochester couple

Romance blossomed for one Rochester woman as she took advantage of the extra leap year day to pop the question to her boyfriend...and he said yes.

Nadia Newell, 42, said she had been planning for months to propose on February 29 - taking advantage of an ancient Irish tradition, believed to date back to the fifth century - which saw women able to propose to their partners for one day every four years.

So when Miss Newell woke up this morning her plan swung into action.

She explained: “I have been waiting for months for this day to come. I had a long time to think about it. I’m just really glad I got the right answer.”

Her partner, Wayne Finch, 51, had just emerged from the shower when she popped the big queestion.

She explains: “I thought I better ask him before he goes to work. I called to him from the top of the stairs and he looked up. I said ‘Wayne will you marry me?’. He chuckled and said of course I will.”

And she’s certain she’s found Mr Right.

She explained: “I had been in a long relationship before and I had lost trust with men a bit. Wayne is completely different. He is such a gentleman.

“It was about six months into the relationship that I thought this is the sort of man that I need in my life.

“We don’t argue and he is happy to do things with me. I am a bit wild and all my friends have said that since I met Wayne I have calmed down. He is very quiet and I am the loud vibrant one so opposites really do attract in this case.”

The couple have been together for a little over a year and say the wedding may be a little while off yet.

Miss Newell added: “It is going to take a good year for me to plan my wedding. I have already said I want to go to Dubai to get a ring.

“When I first moved to Rochester I thought I would never find a man that I could trust He is my best friend and my children love him. I said to myself if I am going to do it; it has to be done on a leap year.”
