We’ve all heard tales of magnificent proposals and this magical Aussie proposal story is no different.

Love is sacred, special and to be treasured for all time and this young couple has reduced us to a puddle of tears with their fairytale proposal.  

The tale begins with young Sydney man, Aiden, who decided to plan a truly marvellous proposal for his girlfriend, Kayley, knowing she deserved something as unique as she is. 

Under the guise that Aiden had won an exclusive experience to interact with the penguins at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, Kayley joined him for a once in a lifetime opportunity, on September 28, that turned into something even more unforgettable.

Aiden took to social media to share the story with friends, family, and any lover of penguins, writing:

“So the story is, I told Kayley that I had won a competition for an exclusive penguin experience. Little did she know, I had set up the entire thing and was actually planning on proposing to this phenomenal girl.  

“There had been a solid 6 months of planning and organising and a hell of a lot of secret keeping in order to have everything run smoothly and without a single hitch." 


Aiden shared a video of the proposal privately to Facebook, showing the moment he revealed he'd planned it all, telling Kayley, "I have a confession to make... I didn't win this in a competition."

"What do you mean?" Kayley replied.

"I set it all up..."


Aiden then dropped to his knee and asked, "Kayley, will you marry me?"

Of course, she said YES.

Aiden continued, thanking Forever Jewellersfor absolutely killing it on the ring and making my vision for a ring a reality. They did a beautiful job and I could not have been happier with the result. Absolutely phenomenal.

“Thank you to everyone that kept the secret from Kayley for as long as they did. I know it was hard but it was well worth the wait and the secret keeping so thankyou all once again from the bottom of my heart. 

“This is an experience and a memory that Kayley and I will cherish forever.

“I hope you all enjoy the video and love it as much as both Kayley and I do."

We certainly did… thanks for reducing us to tears…

Congratulations to Kayley & Aiden, a young couple so clearly completely in love that they’ll make all of Australia envious.
