A romantic farmer took his girlfriend by surprise when he PLOUGHED his wedding proposal into a field.
Creative Andrew Gallon, 24, rode a tractor across a meadow to create 10-ft letters spelling out the words “will you marry me”.
The father-of-one then blindfolded girlfriend Caroline Pymer, 26, and drove her up the hills before unveiling the message and popping the big question.
Luckily, she agreed to be the farmer’s wife and the lovebirds are now planning their big day.
Pub worker Caroline from Howtel, Northumberland, said she was “shocked” when she took her blindfold off.
She said: “I had no idea. He came in one day, told me to put a blindfold on and drove me halfway up a hill.
“I know that sounds weird but I could only think that he had a surprise in store for my birthday which was coming up.”
“As you can imagine I got a big surprise when I took the blindfold off and saw the proposal ploughed into the field.
“Andrew then bent down on one knee and presented me with an engagement ring.
“It was very romantic and I think secretly Andrew is quite pleased with himself.”
Last Sunday’s proposal has been the talk of the local community in recent days.
Caroline added: “I’m sure it’s provided a real talking point for everyone.”
Andrew was given special permission by his boss to carve the message into the field.
And he took special measures to ensure Caroline didn’t see it beforehand.
Caroline said: “We share a car and he took it away for the day, saying he was going shopping.
“He also said he’d pick me up from work so that I wouldn’t drive past the field.”
The couple, who have a seven-month-old son, Dominic, haven’t set a date for their wedding yet.
Andrew said: “We’re waiting till Dominic can walk so he can walk down the aisle with Caroline.”
