Matthew wanted to propose to Karen on stage at a Train gig, as they played their song ‘Marry Me’. To make his dream a reality, he travelled all the way to Birmingham and waited outside the venue in the rain to speak to the lead singer of Train.
The next night, at their Manchester gig, Matthew told Karen he’d won tickets to watch the show stage side. Imagine her surprise when they were called on stage halfway through the show, and Matthew got down on bended knee in front of 2,500 people! He presented her with a ring he’d chosen himself, which fitted perfectly.
She accepted, and Harry Styles, who was in the crowd, tweeted about the proposal, getting nearly 22,000 retweets. The couple, who have a young son, were married just over a year later, and included a video of their incredible proposal at their wedding.
