Beneath a blanket of snow, the garden grounds outside of Catherine Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia hold the promise of a profusion of flowers come springtime. One recent winter day, however, the romance which blossomed between TV game show host Noel Edmonds and make-up artist Liz Davies over the past two years burst in full bloom after a proposal in the garden of the royal Rococo retreat.
Acting on the hope that their love will be perennial, the presenter of the UK version of Deal or No Deal dropped on bended knee and asked for his love’s hand in marriage, slipping an engagement ring on her finger before breaking open a celebratory bottle of champagne, the Daily Mail revealed.
The betrothed twosome kept their intention of saying “I do” a cherished secret until a 60th birthday celebration for the prospective groom. The happy couple are currently contemplating a summer 2009 wedding ceremony.
