Meet Mr August

Meet Mr August

Meet our most romantic groom champion this month: John.

DOES YOUR GROOM HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN?

His romantic proposal to his girlfriend Urmila received the most votes during July's competition, earning him the title of Mr August 2012!

John and Urmila were away on a romantic weekend in Edinburgh when he told Urmila that he couldn't afford an engagement ring, let alone the one she deserved.

They were enjoying dinner when "at around 9pm, the music stopped," explained Urmila, "and one of the waiters stood up and announced to the crowd, that as it was Christmas, we were all going to have a singsong and invited us all to join in with 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' by Andy Williams. So everybody sang along, us included, until suddenly the waiter signaled for all to stop singing. At this point, John got down on one knee, and in front of the entire restaurant/choir (all of whom had their eyes fixed on us) presented me with the ring he 'couldn't afford' (which had been handmade and secretly hiding underneath our bed for the past two months) and asked me to marry him. I was utterly floored and overwhelmed, but could still make out all the cheering and shouts of 'Say yes!' and 'What's your answer?' just before everybody started singing the main chorus of the song." Swoon-worthy or what?

They are now busy planning their wedding for August 2013.
