Friday 17 November 2017 was always going to be a day to remember for John McDaid and Kirsty Ferguson as they were collecting the keys for their new Springfield home. However, thist wasn’t the only cause for celebration as John saw this as the perfect opportunity to ask his partner Kirsty to marry him.

As Kirsty cut the ribbon across the door of their new four bedroom home, built by leading housebuilders Springfield Properties, in Woodilee Village, Lenzie, she was surprised when her partner John dropped to his knee and popped the big question. Without hesitation, Kirsty said ‘yes’ and John put the ring on her finger. John said: 

“I took time off work to collect the ring, and drop flowers and champagne off to Springfield sales executive Susan Blaney-Flannigan who’d agreed to put them into the home before the handover. Kirsty thankfully didn’t click. We already live in Woodilee Village, so we’re glad Springfield had the home we were looking for on our doorstep. It seemed right to step into our new home as husband and wife to be.”

Kirsty added: “I am over the moon and so surprised. I had no idea he had this planned!”

Springfield Properties Sales Executive Susan Blaney-Flanagan was in on the surprise. She said:

“John came to me a little while ago and told me what he was planning. I was so nervous for him, but thrilled we could provide the setting for such a special occasion. They are a lovely couple and myself and the Springfield team wish them a lifetime of happiness.”

With fizz in hand, John and Kirsty toasted their engagement in the sunroom. The Springfield team joined in the celebrations and wished them all the best for their wedding day and a happy future together in their new home.
