Albert Peters spent much of Friday battling a serious case of nerves.
The local linesman had been planning the right moment to pop the question to his girlfriend Cassie Cuthbertson and decided her work Christmas party was the perfect place.
‘‘I was very, very nervous all day,’’ Albert said.
‘‘I was shaking all morning.
‘‘I was pretty sure she was going to say yes and I was pretty sure she’d like the ring, but yes, still very nervous.’’
In front of Cassie’s Beechworth Bakery workmates on Friday night, Albert decided the time was right.
An instrumental version of Jason Derulo’s Marry Me started playing and Albert began singing to the love of his life.
‘‘It was like no-one else existed,’’ Cassie said.
‘‘Everything just melted away
‘‘And he can sing.’’
Albert also enlisted Cassie’s daughter Keisha to help with the proposal.
‘‘I wanted to do it in front of Cassie’s workmates, because when I first came to Echuca I didn’t know many people and they really became friends,’’ Albert said.
‘‘It was a great moment.’’
The couple have been seeing each other for less than a year, but as the old saying goes
‘‘I first met Albert in June (2012) at the Star Bar,’’ Cassie said.
‘‘I was out for a girls’ night, and he was having a drink with workmates.
‘‘We started talking and I found out he was doing work for Sovereign Energy between Deniliquin and Moama.
‘‘We were friends for months and in February this year we decided to take it to the next level.’’
Cassie and Albert plan to marry next year.
