Guy Hides Marriage Proposal In Every Photo With His Girlfriend For Months

Fish delivery drivers know a thing or two about being slippery. Ray Smith, a 38-year-old delivery driver from Grimsby, UK, spent 5 months sneaking the words “Will you marry me?” into photographs of him and his pregnant girlfriend, Claire Bramley, 33. 148 photos, to be exact, in his everyman quest to come up with a romantic proposal.

“I searched online for unusual proposals and I saw ideas like flash mobs and that sort of thing,” Smith told Metro. “So I decided to come up with my own idea to take a picture every day for five months.” As for Clair’s response? “I was totally surprised, but in hindsight it’s exactly the kind of thing he does…I said yes straight away, I didn’t need to think about it.”

More info: (h/t: metro, cosmo)

“I originally thought about popping the question in a hot air balloon,” said Ray

“I have been planning to propose for a while and I knew I wanted to do something romantic”

“In June we received some great news that Claire was expecting a baby, which put a stop to that plan”

“I decided to come up with my own idea to take a picture every day for five months”

“I told her I was taking the pictures to track the progress of the baby”

“Sometimes she wanted to see the pictures so I had to take more than one – one with the card and one without”

“I had no clue, I was totally oblivious to it all,” said Claire

“He told me he was taking the pictures to create memories for the baby so I just let him get on with it”

“It was really stressful putting it all together, it took a lot of hard work. She nearly caught me a couple of times but I just had to pray it worked”

“He likes to do romantic things”

Ray went so far as to tease his future fiancee about proposing

“I actually started teasing her saying 2016 is a leap year, and she should actually propose to me”

But finally, as Christmas approached, it was time

“It was all a bit chaotic on Christmas Day morning so I took her away and set it all up on the laptop. I got down on one knee and gave her a bit of spiel, and then popped the question”

What's wrong with so many of you?! I'm a thirty year veteran copy editor, and I didn't care one whit about this gentleman's grammar or punctuation. It's an expression of love and joy, and no one should be so nasty to criticize his language skills, his motives, or certainly the length of their upcoming marriage. You people should be ashamed of yourselves for dumping your dark clouds on these people AND those of us who enjoy sharing in this sweet gesture. I pity those of you who did that. Perhaps you could be positive, courteous, and thoughtful for just a few minutes of your lives.

Oh my friend...Be cool and be positive...Some people are more precise than us.They can see some things that we are not able to recognize them. So be nicer with them😄First of all I have the best wishes for the couple. I think the whole of story is about a man who tried hard to hide a visit card with a beautiful massage in the pictures which are taken by himself and some SELFIEs as well.Claire , the woman in the pictures claimed that she was not aware of that visit card and what was written on it. I just quote from her ; "I had no clue, I was totally oblivious to it all"It'sVery interesting!!! Here is my question. First picture was taken on July 31,2015 is a selfie picture. I think she could see herself and the photographer and the VISIT CARD in the screen of the smartphone (or any electronic devices which had a digital camera)because camera was on selfie mode and worked like a mirror! The picture was taken on August 30,2015.it's another selfie😂ok bro! have a nice day 😂😂

Wish to find a man like that oneday. When you are always the one who think of romantic things, that's tiredsome. But romantic can not be taught.
