VIDEO: An Irish wedding proposal that will make you smile: ‘She’ll get the surprise of her life’
In Carrigaline, Cork, this man hatched one big romantic plan to make sure that his girlfriend would say "Yes" when he proposed.
When his girlfriend was out with friends, and he'd had enough time to organise his plan, the Casanova devised the perfect ruse to entice her home.
He rang her and said: “The power is gone, nothing’s working, there’s smoke coming out of the fuse box above the stairs".
With tea-light candles all over the house, and a wedding band ready to play "I'm Yours", he led her inside the door when she returned.
“You’re a fantastic mother... and I wonder if you’d be my wife,” he told her.
Naturally, she said “Yes”.
