Wedding bells are ringing in the ears of two Shepparton love birds after a successful December 12 proposal.

Following The News’ 12-12-12 special, we can now report that Cameron Cresswell and Stephanie Watt are engaged to be married after almost 12 years together.

Ms Watt said she was ‘‘really surprised’’, but very pleased.

‘‘We’d been to his Christmas party ... so were still up, we just went to bed and he was playing on his phone, he was obviously really nervous,’’ Ms Watt said.

‘‘He was actually reading a poem on his phone that he had written and was rehearsing in his head.

‘‘He waited for 12 minutes (past midnight) on his phone ... said ‘I’ve got something to ask you’, said the poem and just (asked me).’’

She said it was a ‘‘massive’’ moment in her life, although the reality was yet to set in.

‘‘I’ve sort of been planning it forever, or thinking about it anyway, it’s been such a big thing,’’ Ms Watt said.

‘‘Even though it’s happened it just doesn’t feel like it’s official, that we actually need to start planning things.’’

While they are yet to decide on a date for the wedding, they’ve already been on their first date as fiancees — a special breakfast on Wednesday morning at the Butter Factory.

‘‘He took me out for breakfast ... and he picked up the paper and put it in front of me on the table and I thought ‘oh God, you’re on the front page’,’’ Ms Watt said.

‘‘I had to go to work (at the Red Cross blood centre) and all the donors knew about it (the article) and they were all reading it.’’
