In an age where marriage proposals are increasingly elaborate, one Irish man opted for something simple but adorable.

Shane emigrated to America five years ago on a soccer scholarship and met American girl Julia Gordon while he was working in an Irish bar.

On Saturday he proposed to Julia, a yoga and pilates instructor, on the beach.

"I asked her to do some yoga on the beach and I would video it," he explains, "While in a yoga position i grabbed the ring and proposed while she landed from the yoga move.

"WE have both been through so much to be together and make this happen.  I finished college in Florida last May and signed a professional soccer contract in Sweden.

"Julia left her job and career and moved to Sweden to be with me.  Over Christmas I had options to sign a professional contract with a few clubs but turned them down to return to Floirda to be with Julia.
