Source - A sneaky bride-to-be staged a fake vow renewal ceremony for her friends in order to propose to her fiancé – after he popped the question ’30 times a day’ for two years.
Paul Schoproni, 40, had been asking his partner Aleasha Pilawa, 36, to marry him for years, but she had never given him an answer.
Aleasha, from Bargoed, Wales, then decided to stage an elaborate proposal to make up for the delay, and organised a fake wedding for two friends to set the scene.
Unsuspecting Paul – who was the ‘best man’ at the pretend nuptials – looked on in shock as Aleasha danced down the makeshift aisle and belted out a rendition of the 1978 Motown hit It Should’ve Been Me.
In a video shot by a member of the congregation, the truth of situation dawns on Paul, who punches the air with joy.
Ugh, this warms my heart. They’re going to have such a great story to tell to their kids some day. “Mommy, how did daddy propose?” “Well honey, he actually proposed thirty times a day for two years straight until I finally caved in and said yes. That’s why he’s in a mental institution and I have a protective order! Hehehe!”
Believe it or not, despite their J-Wow/Roger-esque vibe, this couple isn’t from New Jersey. They’re from bloody England, which for some reason makes the story kind of charming. Here are some more details…
‘For the last two years he’s proposed to me about 30 times a day,’ said Aleasha, ‘I’m doing a degree in HR management and running two tyre repair garages so having someone asking to marry you all the time can be exhausting.
The mother-of-three said Paul would regularly make ‘embarrassing’ romantic gestures, but decided to propose to ‘put him out of his misery’.
‘He used to do things like stand outside there in the morning as I drove past holding a billboard saying “Will you marry me?” – proper embarrassing,’ she said.
‘So I thought I’d finally put him out of his misery’.
‘He did get suspicious once or twice so I’d have to create an argument just so I could be alone to plan our wedding,’ explained Aleasha.
‘So, yes, there were a few nights when he ended up sleeping outside in the van bless him.
Standing on the side of the road is a bit much. As is creating an argument so serious that he has to sleep in a van outside the house so you can plan the wedding, but I get it- they’re in love. Not only that, they’re both equally crazy. Which is something all couples should hold onto if they find. Whatever. Best of luck to the happy couple!
