MANILA – A month after announcing her engagement to her Australian boyfriend, Ian Garton, beauty queen Karen Gallman shared photos from their prenup shoot in London.
The Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2018 titleholder looked radiant during the shoot, which was a collaboration with the photography network Sweet Escape.
Here’s a look:
In an interview with the local lifestyle website Metro.Style, Gallman and Garton revealed that the proposal “was memorable for all the wrong reasons,” but they wouldn’t trade it for anything else.
“I had planned the proposal six months in advance and was going to pop the question in Santorini, Greece and Karen found out late at night a week before our trip, so I panicked,” Garton said. “In my undies (it was hot because the aircon broke), I rushed to get the ring, dropped down on one knee and tried to remember my lines. This all happened at 1 a.m. Thankfully, she said yes, and we both just started crying.”
Gallman, for her part, said: “It was such an emotional and overwhelming night. And as much as I would have loved to get proposed to in Santorini, I must say I think I preferred how things unfolded. It’s definitely more memorable and a story to tell our kids and grandkids.”
“I’d also like to add that, at the end of the day, it’s not about where he pops the question, it’s the love that matters. And I’m just so over the moon that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend.”
