Leap year love!

It's the 29th Feb and it's a very special day! But why do women traditionally propose on this day? Where did the tradition come from?

It’s believed that the tradition dates back to 5th century Ireland when St. Bridget was said to be a bit miffed at the length of time women had to wait for a man to ask for their hand in marriage.  Upon debating this with St. Patrick, he told her that women could then propose on the leap year.

No matter how you do it, on bended knee or not, have a fantastic day and don’t forget, if you’ll be getting married in Sussex, Surrey, Kent or Essex, get in touch to find out if i’m available to DJ at your wedding 🙂
