To get you in the mood for a bit of Valentine’s romance, here are a few of our favourites!
Adam King and Lucy Rogers
The future Mr and Mrs King became YouTube sensations in November after Adam hired a choir to break into a rendition of Lovely Day on a train from Euston to Watford. 90 seconds in, Adam got down on one knee and asked Lucy to marry him. To the relief of the choir, the other passengers and most of all Adam, she said yes!
Holly Valance and Nick Candy
Clearly not one for mincing his words, property tycoon Nick had ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME’ written in fire as he got down on one knee and proposed. Holly then announced her news to over 118,000 Twitter followers, tweeting, ‘And I said YES!!! <3 Happiest day of my life!!!!! Xxxx’.
Kate Middleton and Prince William
William asked Kate to be his wife (and his future Queen) during a break in Kenya. William kept the £250,000 18-carat ring, which belonged to his late mother Diana, in his backpack for 3 weeks before he finally proposed.
After announcing the news to the waiting press, the Prince joked: ‘everywhere I went I was keeping hold of it because I knew this thing, if it disappeared I would be in a lot of trouble’. And as we all know, luckily everything went to plan!
Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman
To make sure his future wife knew just how much he wanted to marry her, Jordan filled a hotel room with rose petals and gift boxes for Christina to open, each with a present and poem inside. When Christina opened the last box, she found an engagement ring and Jordan got down on one knee. And how could she refuse him?
