Meet our most romantic groom champion this month: Phil.
His romantic proposal to his girlfriend Jess received the most votes during our April competition, earning him the title of Mr May 2013!
Phil surprised Jess with a very romantic and quite intricate proposal on the day of their fourth anniversary. A trail of notes led Jess to pack an overnight bag, arrive at The Langham hotel in London, enjoy a spa day and lovely lunch with her sister (an utter surprise) and finished with a very, very romantic proposal in the Langham's private rose garden.
"When I went out there I saw Phil waiting with a huge bunch of my favourite flowers, candles and champagne," said Jess. "He had a whole speech planned but forgot it in the heat of the moment and handed me the final note which said 'Will you marry me?' Of course I burst into tears and said yes!"
Phil then point to the hotel window, where his Jess's sister and Phil's brother were watching and photographing the whole thing! After a champagne celebration they newly engaged couple went off for a romantic dinner. When they arrived (at the restaurant where they had had their first date) Jess was shocked with a final surprise: a secret engagement party with all her friends and family!
