A boyfriend has gone viral after proposing to his girlfriend with an engagement ring that he had sent into space in order to secure a ‘yes.
England-based Liam Bove and Becky Dixon are childhood sweethearts with a big passion for all the stuff related to space.
Following 15 years of relationship, Liam decided to come up with a unique marriage proposal that his wife couldn’t say no to.
And so, the 31-year-old reached out to Sent Into Space, a space marketing company, and convinced them to take his engagement ring 100,000 feet high.
In the video taken in space, Liam’s diamond ring is seen tightly secured in a Tiffany box with Earth in the background.
Following the 3-hour journey, the ring was returned to Liam and he was ready to propose with the help of the footage captured by Sent Into Space.
“Becky is out of this world to me so I hoped the proposal would reflect that. We always say to each other ‘I love you to the far edges of the universe and back’ so I wanted to get the ring as close to that as I could,” the man explained.
“I showed her the video and at first she was asking what was happening. She wasn’t sure if I was doing a bungee jump. Then she asked why the world was getting smaller. But I had to keep quiet.
“Then the slideshow of our pictures ended and revealed the ring and by that point I was down on one knee. She was absolutely overwhelmed and gobsmacked. Delighted to say the least.”
As for the company behind the stunt, they have already completed over 500 flights to the upper stratosphere using gas balloons.
“To propose to his girlfriend in style, Liam asked us to send his engagement ring into space so he could ask her to marry him with an incredible gesture of love,” a spokesperson revealed.
“His efforts paid off and we’re happy we could play a part in the progression of their relationship to its next phase and wish them the best of luck as they move forward into married life.”
