A romantic stroll under the Eiffel Tower, a dinner date at your favourite restaurant or perhaps a sneaky ring hidden in a cake – marriage proposals come in all shapes and sizes.
But one Brighton lovebird was left in a spin after her picnic in the park was ambushed by a flashmob of dancing hulahoopers, led by her boyfriend.
The couple from Hove, Jo Mondy, 28, and Andy Broughton, 36, got engaged in Brighton’s Pavilion Gardens on October 6 after he choreographed a surprise hula hoop routine that finished with a very special question.“Will you marry me?”
Jo, who runs Brighton hula business Live Love Hoop, said: “It was a beautiful day and my friends toldmewe should to the gardens for a picnic, but they demanded I sat in a certain place which I found odd.
“Then I saw them all.
“I run a hula hoop business and most of the people in the flashmob were my friends and students that I teach.
“At first I thought they’d put something together for me as their teacher, but was getting really confused as to why Andy was leading it all.
“He then got down on one knee and I said ‘yes’. There were a few tears. It was really romantic.”
