Kneesy does it...

Paisley Daily Express - - Angry Workers Set To Strike Over Pay Row -

West Col­lege Scot­land stu­dent Rachel Pa­trick left with more than just a diploma af­ter her grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony in Pais­ley.

She also walked away with an en­gage­ment ring on her fin­ger fol­low­ing a sur­prise pro­posal from boyfriend Josh Ma­gen­nis on the doorstep of Pais­ley Abbey.

While Rachel was pre­par­ing to col­lect her HND in Makeup Artistry, Josh was qui­etly speak­ing to her dad Colin for his per­mis­sion to ask his daugh­ter to marry him.

Im­me­di­ately af­ter the cer­e­mony, Josh went down on one knee in front of Rachel’s par­ents and class­mates and popped the ques­tion.

Rachel, 21 who lives in Pais­ley with her now fi­ancé Josh, said:“The day was amaz­ing from start to fin­ish.

“Grad­u­at­ing was one of the proud­est mo­ments of my life and it will be a day I will never for­get, now for two rea­sons!

“The pro­posal took me com­pletely by sur­prise. We al­ways joked about it but I never imag­ined Josh would pull some­thing like that off, es­pe­cially out­side one of my favourite places.”

Mar­ket­ing man­ager Josh, 22, who was also pre­vi­ously a West Col­lege Scot­land stu­dent study­ing roofing, slat­ing and tiling, said he had been plan­ning the sur­prise pro­posal for weeks.

Since fin­ish­ing her Makeup Artistry course at the col­lege’s Pais­ley cam­pus, Rachel is plan­ning to con­tinue her work as a self-em­ployed makeup artist.

The cou­ple haven’t set a date yet but the venue is a def­i­nite.

Rachel said:“We def­i­nitely want to get mar­ried in the abbey now as it is now such a spe­cial place to us.

“It would be amaz­ing to come back to tie the knot in the same place where I said yes.”

West Col­lege Scot­land Prin­ci­pal Liz Connolly, who pre­sented Rachel with her diploma, spoke to the happy cou­ple af­ter­wards.

She said:“Our grad­u­a­tion cer­e­monies are al­ways spe­cial oc­ca­sions but this one was ex­traspe­cial. The whole col­lege wishes Rachel and Josh so much hap­pi­ness for their fu­ture to­gether.”
