A lorry lover has popped the BIG question to the love of his life in the only way he knew how.
Lee Juniper, 43, asked Rosie Peters to be his wife with a message printed on a 40 foot articulated lorry which rocked up outside their new home on Sunday.
The lorry which carries the message “Rose, Please Will You Marry Me?” was ready in waiting the previous Wednesday.
The self-confessed lorry enthusiast asked Rosie, 38, to come outside their house in the village of Glatton, Cambs., because he had a “surprise”.
The operations director for haulage firm, Freshlinc, said: “I’ve always loved lorries, they have always been an interest of mine and after meeting Rosie at Freshlinc three and a half years ago I didn’t know how else I could bring my two loves together.
“I know its a bit odd but you could say I’ve got diesel in my veins.”
As the pair who have lived together for two and a half years waited, Lee’s brother Wayne, drove the lorry up their door.
Lee, who has two children through a previous relationship, said: “I dropped to my knees, her mouth dropped too and she cried when she read it as it drove up.”
“At first she could not answer, but I was not worried, I knew she was going to say yes.”
According to Lee he fell for account manager Rosie soon after meeting her.
His plan was hatched more than a year ago and involved 20 people at the company.
Lee said: “I have a great team of people who helped, the whole company knew about it expect Rosie, I’m quite lucky to have kept it quiet.”
Although he was not prepared to disclose how much the stunt cost him he said “it was not cheap”.
He added: “I did not expect it to get so much interest, I just did it because I feel so much for the woman I love and my passion for lorries, how can I not put the two together?”
The happy couple are expecting to be wed next year and Lee said “unreservedly” lorries will be involved in the ceremony – one way or another.
To mark the occasion Freshlinc have told Lee to keep the message on the vehicle, which has now had the line “She Said Yes, Yeehaw!” added to it.
