Meet our most romantic groom champion this month: Richard.

DOES YOUR GROOM HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN?

His romantic proposal to his girlfriend Laura received the most votes during our May competition, earning him the title of Mr June 2013!

It was their fifth anniversary when Rich surprised Laura with his proposal.

"Nearly seven years ago, Rich and I went on our first date to Formby beach," explains Laura. "Every year since then on the 29th June, we have returned to that very same spot.  It has become our tradition, and everyone knows that we will be there come rain or shine!"

After enjoying their classic fish & chips on the beach, they watched the sunset when he got down on one knee and asked Laura to marry him! Instead of a ring, he held out a box with Haribo jelly ring inside, which he had always joked that he would do.

"I was so shocked that I shouted 'Yes of course I will!' I quickly grabbed the jelly ring and ate it. Looking back, the jelly ring would have been a lovely keepsake if I hadn't quickly eaten it."
