Excuse us, we have something in our eyes.

This adorable marriage proposal was born out of two lovebirds having to spend a month apart. The groom-to-be’s girlfriend was taking off to Europe for a month and he couldn’t join her, citing issues at “work” and all that.

Then he goes to London anyway, and surprises her by putting a ring on her finger. Here’s how he wrote it up on YouTube:

My girlfriend was traveling Europe with her sister for a month straight. (We’re from the USA.) She asked me to go and I honestly said I couldn’t take work off. A few days after I told her I couldn’t make it. I thought what a crazy way to propose…surprise her in London. (Sorry about vertical filming…the pictures are great tho)

Here’s the video of the proposal:

You can clearly hear the chirps of cameras going off to capture the moment. The beautiful pictures ended up on Imgur, as the groom solicited help from a local photographer via Reddit.

May these two lovebirds live happily ever after.
