1. Romantic flash mob

A glass of wine at an Italian restaurant turns into the most unforgettable moment of this bride-to-be’s life. She truly had no idea the beautiful a cappella group and violins were only for her as she sat waiting. It’s only when her other half comes out, guitar in his arms, that the floods of happy tears start. Be warned – they’re infectious.

2. Romeo and Juliet

He’s a theatre director. She loves the theatre. There’s only one thing for it – hire out an entire theatre space and hire actors to act out her favourite scene from Romeo and Juliet. Everything from the fairy lights and candles to the string quartet are completely perfect – her reaction says it all.

3. ‘He said yes'

Your proposal story will be told to friends and strangers for the rest of your lives – and these guys certainly have a beauty of a tale. A police officer broke rank during London LBGT Pride 2016 parade to get down on one knee and propose to his partner. Completely touching and impossibly beautiful.

4. The 19:57 from Euston

The surprise is in the unassuming location for this one: the 19:57 overground train to Watford Junction, to be precise. Like a scene from a movie, this guy got an entire tube carriage to sing Bill Withers ‘Lovely Day’ spontaneously before proposing to his girlfriend – who was completely unaware the whole thing was arranged for her until she saw him.

5. Marry Me Fireworks

A proposal as dreamy as this one guarantees a YES. It all started at a luxury hotel, where the lucky girlfriend was showered in romantic love notes attached to roses throughout the day by staff. After dinner, her final note told her to go outside. There, on a fishing lodge by the lake, were thousands of fairy lights and candles – followed by a firework display and famous opera singer. The finale will take your breath away…
