Each and every proposal story has its own unique set of highlights – from the location to the method of asking.
They can be a stressful affair – as many tend to overthink the nerve-wracking situation where they ask the love of their life to marry them.
One farmer went viral after ploughing the words ‘will you marry me?’ into a field before flying his girlfriend over the top – in a hot air balloon.
Romantic Sam Tucker, 24, ploughed the words into the ground at his dairy farm in Wellington, Somerset.
It took him two hours to make the message – which stretches over 100 metres – using a machine of just three metres wide.
“It was a beautiful day too, which was lucky. October isn’t the best month for British weather to do it, but it was a really perfect morning.

He then hired a balloon and flew his girlfriend of two years Megan Wilkins, 23, over the countryside before dropping to one knee – and luckily she said yes.
Sam said: ”I actually proposed in the balloon, I got down on one knee up there.
“I don’t know what specifically inspired me to do it, I must have seen it somewhere, but I’ve had the idea in my head for years, so it’s been a long time coming.
“I think we’re planning on having at least the reception in a field. Megan isn’t from a farming background but she loves it now.”

Sam was helped by Bailey Balloons a hot air balloon company based in Bristol.
Jo Bailey of Bailey Balloons said: “Megan was delighted as they took off from his farm and she saw the message straight away and was delighted and said yes.
“They then enjoyed flying over Sam’s farm and looking at all of the places where they grew up.”
