Meet our most romantic groom champion this month: Gary.

DOES YOUR GROOM HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN?

His sweet proposal to his girlfriend Charlie received the most votes during our March competition, earning him the title of Mr April 2014!

It was the morning before Gary's birthday when he told Charlie that he needed to be in work for 6am the next day. The next morning they woke up like normal, Charlie ready to give Gary a lift to work as she need the car when he told her to open her advent calendar.

"The date was 12/12/13. Every year my mum makes me an advent calendar, full of little presents. I wasn't expecting anything special, just the usual thoughtful gift of a magnet or hand cream from my lovely mum," explained Charlie.

"I unwrapped the present to find a ring box... I was so nervous I dropped it on the floor! Gary then said 'Oh, it's not from your mum, it's from me..."  Of course, I cried. Especially when I saw the perfect vintage 1930s ring he'd picked out for me!"

It turned out he wasn't in work that day, Gary just wanted to spend as much of the day with his bride-to-be as possible. He'd even booked her in for a manicure later that day!
