Meet our most romantic groom champion this month: Joe.

DOES YOUR GROOM HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN?

His heart-felt proposal to his girlfriend of six years, Rhian, received the most votes during our December competition, earning him the title of Mr January 2014!

Having just finished her final lecture for the year, Joe whisked Rhian off on a surprise trip to the Lake District.

Having lived in Canada for two years together before and missing the beautiful terrain they had grown used to she was beyond thrilled.  A picturesque hotel and glorious weather made it all the better. 

The following morning they went on a hike. 

"As we got to the top," explained Rhian, "there wasn't a person around and the sky was as blue as the lakes in-between the valleys. Joe said some of the most beautiful, sentimental words to me… and then got down on one knee. It couldn't have been more perfect. He even carried champagne and two glasses up in his back pack!"

"I truly am the luckiest girl."
