Meet our most romantic groom champion this month: Martin.

DOES YOUR GROOM HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN?

His romantic proposal to his girlfriend Carly received the most votes during our July competition, earning him the title of Mr August 2013!

From the first time they met, Carly knew Martin would be the man she married: "On our first date I said that one thing I'd love to do was watch a sunset in the desert," she said. So that is what happened.

Martin whisked Carly off on a hour long drive through the sand dunes to watch the sunset, declare his undying love and propose.

"I was so, so shocked," said Carly. "I knew from day one that he was so perfect and he would be my husband one day, but he took me by surprise then.  I'm so lucky to have found the most amazing husband-to-be and can't wait to be married to him!"

They are now planning their wedding for April 2013.
