A wedding turned into a double celebration after a woman’s boyfriend dropped to one knee after she caught the bridge’s bouquette.
Teaching assistant Kirsty Frayne was jostling with other female guests in a bid to grab the flower’s when the bridge turned round and handed them over.
Kirsty’s partner Joe Booker, 28, then appeared behind the stunned 29-year-old, got straight down on one knee and asked her to marry him.
She said yes.
The couple were attending the wedding of Joe’s cousin Ben Lavell, 36, an estate agent, and his bride Natalie at the Carlyon Bay Hotel near St Austell, Cornwall.
The elaborate proposal plan was hatched during Ben’s stag do.
Joe, a window cleaner, said: “I was at Ben’s stag do in Krakow when, after a few drinks, he said he thought it would be a good idea for me to propose to Kirsty at his wedding.
“I was not sure at first as I didn’t think about getting married yet as we are just about to emigrate to Australia, but then I thought it doesn’t get much more romantic than proposing at a wedding.”
Thankfully, Kirsty – who is originally from Perth in Australia – immediately said yes before bursting into tears in front of delighted guests.

Ben said: “We thought it was be a lovely thing to see and celebrate before they left for Australia, plus Kirsty is desperate to get a married and have babies and was sure Joe was never going to do it.
“Joe is quite shy to so we didn’t think he’d do it. So Natalie came up with the idea of instead of throwing the bouquet to give it to her and Joe would be there waiting.
“His family didn’t know either, apart from his dad.”
Ben and Natalie, of Cannon Downs, Cornwall, are currently honeymooning in Bali.
Natalie, added: “About a month ago he said he’d do it as long as we were sure it wouldn’t steal our thunder.”
Kirsty and Joe, from Bognor Regis in West Sussex, are now preparing to move Down Under in two weeks and start planning their wedding.
