A sweet surprise proposal for Gloucestershire teaching assistant

Sarah Carman, a teaching assistant at Wycliffe College in Stonehouse, got the surprise of her life when her partner organised a touching proposal with the help of her pupils.

Gloucestershire teaching assistant, Sarah Carman, received a unique marriage proposal when her now-fiancé Luke Collins surprised her at work with a truly romantic gesture on Friday 25 November 2016.

Sarah, who works with Year 1 pupils Wycliffe College in Stonehouse, was completely shocked after Luke secretly got in touch with the headmaster and Sarah’s class teacher in order to plan the special moment.

On the day of the proposal, Luke went to work as normal before surprising Sarah while she was helping her class with their morning reading, announcing that he had something to ask her.

Sarah explained: ‘I was pretty shocked when Luke strolled in; I didn’t know what was happening or why he was there. He told me he had something to ask me, and then in walked in the children one by one, each holding part of the message ‘Miss Carman will you marry me?’

Luke then produced a beautiful engagement ring and got down on one knee to ask Sarah to be his wife, keeping a little bit of tradition in this sweet and original proposal.

‘I didn’t suspect a thing! I had no idea I would get engaged at work but I wouldn’t change a thing about it. It was so special and personal to me and after finding out how Luke had planned it in such detail, I was so pleased it has gone exactly how he wanted it to,’ said Sarah.

The happy couple hopes to celebrate their wedding in 2018 in their home county of Gloucestershire and SoGlosWeddings wishes them all the best for their future together.
