“It was really, really good. I couldn’t believe it.”

Keeping the fires going in a relationship for almost two decades is no easy feat for any couple, but it's an achievement Guy Sebastian and wife Jules have managed to accomplish.
The couple tied the knot back in 2008 and have been going strong ever since, and now have two kids - Hudson, eight and Archer, five.
Taking to Instagram Live on Wednesday night, Guy and Jules reflected on their relationship while answering questions from fans and shared the beautiful story of their engagement.
Guy revealed that he popped the question while on a trip to Queensland's Hervey Bay, where he had just bought an investment property.

"I was pretending that we were holidaying there and I said let's go for a walk down the beach. There's a nice stretch of beach that's not very populated so I thought it'd be nice and quiet," he said.
"We got to like where this house that I had bought and there's a bench that overlooks the water and we sat on that bench and I got on my knee."
Guy said nerves played a part in the proposal and he hadn't come prepared with words he wanted to say to Jules.

"I did it really fast because I was really nervous. I didn't even have a speech, I wasn't like 'We've been together for this long...'" he said.
Jules added, "It was literally like we sat down and as soon as his butt hit the bench, he was on the ground with the ring."
Of course Jules said yes, but Guy had one more surprise in store for his soon-to-be wife. Inside the house – which Jules did not yet know that he had just bought – were a bunch of their friends waiting to celebrate with them.
"It was good. It was really, really good. I couldn't believe it," Jules admitted, before laughing, "Then he said, 'Ok I'm going fishing now' and disappeared for five whole hours."

In November last year, Jules shared more insight into what her marriage is like while speaking to Now To Love.
"I think it comes down to I really like Guy. I mean, of course I love him, but I like him, I have a lot of respect for him, I just think he's a really solid dude," Jules said.
"He really makes good decisions, he's really kind to people and he works really hard and he has all those really strong characteristics that I find attractive. It can't all be rainbows and unicorns everyday. Life is just not like that, but yeah, we have a good time.
"We've got to work at it, absolutely - but for the most part, it's been pretty smooth sailing."
