A man got down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend as she served customers at a branch of Greggs.
Yvonne Fisher, 57, who was working in the bakery, was busy preparing sandwiches when she had the unexpected visit from her partner, 54-year-old Keith Fisher.
Keith, a bus driver, had taken a break from his morning shift to pop the question at the Greggs in Redill, Surrey.
He went down one knee on Wednesday last week – and even produced a poem declaring his love, which he read out in front of customers.
Keith, from Redhill, said: “Yvonne – or Bonnie as I call her – used to say nothing I could do would surprise her.
“But I managed it this time.
“She went bright red, but thankfully she said ‘yes’.”
There was double cause for celebration because it was also blushing bride Yvonne’s birthday on the same day.
The pair actually met 30 years ago when they both worked at Redhill’s Royal Mail sorting office – but say they were only really on nodding terms back then.
But then three years ago fate brought them together – in the romantic setting of the 430 bus service.
Keith, a grandfather, said: “I saw Bonnie struggling onto the bus with lots of heavy shopping. I said to her ‘why isn’t your husband helping you with that?’
“She replied, ‘I haven’t got a husband’.
“The next thing, I had invited her to meet for a coffee and it all began from there really.”
The couple actually got engaged a year ago, but Keith made it official when he carried out his public proposal last week.
Keith’s poem included the line: “You remember this date for the rest of your life, ’cause today I’m asking you to be my wife.”
When Yvonne said yes, customers broke into applause.
Grandmother-of-eight Yvonne said: “I was wondering what he was doing in the shop when he could see I was busy.
“But Keith is a bit of a soppy romantic at heart.”
Preparations for the wedding began the very same day when the couple went out shopping for bridesmaids’ dresses.
Yvonne already changed her name to Fisher by deed poll two years ago and the pair set up home together in Redhill.
