An Ohio man has created a frosty fairy-tale setting for a memorable marriage proposal by building a snow castle for his girlfriend.

Ryan Knotek said he wanted to pop the question to Christi Lombardo in a way that would give her a unique story to tell.

Using blocks of snow, he constructed a one-room palace topped with roof spires in the Cleveland suburb of Parma.

Inside, Mr Knotek set up candles, rose petals, wine - and a portable heater to keep the chill away.

The atmosphere apparently warmed Miss Lombardo's heart when she arrived on Sunday: She said "Yes".
