People are pressured into coming up with bigger, bolder and more sensational marriage proposals these days due to the massive influence the internet has on our lives.
But proposer Ray Smith from Grimsby, England didn't just want to come up with an over-the-top way to propose to his girlfriend Claire- he wanted to toy with his future wife as well.
So Ray started snapping lots of pics of their time together, hiding a "will you marry me?" sign in each and every photo taken for five months, 148 photos in all, without his girlfriend ever noticing.
Ray finally popped the question on Christmas morning, using the photo montage video he'd been slyly creating for the last five months as his version of an epic proposal.
