Dylan unlocks the ‘key’ to Chelsea’s heart

If there’s a perfect Valentine’s Day, then this is it! Just imagine the delight of receiving the key to your new home, the awe of walking through the threshold for the first time and then your partner dropping to one knee and proposing – the emotion of it all!

Chelsea McCool pictured with the ‘key’ to her heart after Dylan’s proposal.

It’s not a myth, it happened this week in Limavady.

Local man and well-known barber, Dylan Stafford, had it all planned to perfection when he proposed to his girlfriend Chelsea straight after receiving the key to their new Roe Wood home.

With balloons, champagne, chocolates and a beautiful bouquet of flowers setting the scene, the young man made Chelsea’s day complete, getting down on one knee and offering his hand in marriage.

For Chelsea, who is a children’s occupational therapist, it was a ‘no brainer!’

The couple have been together for four years so the answer was a resolute yes, making the momentous day even more special and unlocking the key to her heart!

Moving into a new home gives you plenty to think about but for Dylan it was the perfect opportunity to ask Chelsea to marry him. Over the moon, he couldn’t thank his new fiancée enough.

‘I’m just so thrilled that Chelsea said yes and for it to happen on the day we moved into our new home it was just so special and an occasion we’ll both never forget.

‘We haven’t even had a chance to take everything in about our new home as we’ve been talking to family and friends since, telling them about our fantastic news.

‘This weekend we’ll just take the time to relax in our gorgeous new Roe Wood home and soak up what a fantastic week this has been for us both.’

Certainly, from us all at Braidwater, we wish the happy young couple – Chelsea and Dylan, many years of happiness in their new home.

The romantic event was summed up superbly by Braidwater’s Darren Farnan, when he wished the happy couple every success for a joyful and contented future together, adding:  

‘A truly momentous day for the happy couple, and Dylan has unlocked the key to Chelsea’s heart!’
