This Irish man's extravagant proposal might just be the best yet
A Waterford man proposed to his long-term girlfriend in the most extravagant way on Sunday.
James Barry spent four weeks planning a surprise that his girlfriend would never forget.
James proposed to his childhood sweetheart of 13 years, Orla Gallagher, by enlisting sand artist Sean Cororan to write “Orla, will you marry me?” in an enormous heart on Stradbally Cove, Co. Waterford.
Furthermore, the City of Waterford Brass band marched around the heart playing Matrimony by Gilbert O’Sullivan as the question was revealed.
The event came as a total surprise to Orla, who delightedly said yes, with James managing to conceal his plan right until the last minute.
“I’m still in shock, my hands are shaking,” Orla told reporter Donal O'Flynn after James popped the question.
If that's not love, then we don't know what is.
And another for good measure of James and Orla from yesterday's proposal :) I really think the rain made it even more special, it was absolutely pouring down!!! #engagement #proposal #coupleinlove #inlove #kissingintherain #rain #stradbally #waterford #ireland #coppercoast #weddingphotographer #instaphoto #photooftheday #instacool #lookslikefilm #romance
So on a rainy day, in Stradbally, James proposed to Orla and she said "YES" it's been weeks in the making, 1 path created, one sand artist @the_art_hand, one marching band, one rainy day and one couple in love, it's been fun and I'm delighted to have been a part of it #engagement #secret #supersecret #topsecret #shesaidyes #love #futuremrandmrs #stradbally #waterford #photooftheday #instavideo #lookslikefilm #sandart
