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
It was their fifth anniversary when Rich surprised Laura with
"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
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
