Video: Derry wall backdrop for romantic Christmas proposal

An Ulster woman was stunned when her boyfriend pulled out all the stops in a romantic proposal involving all of their friends in Derry this Christmas.

Siobhán Gill from Bridgend in Donegal believed she was being treated to a festive lunch with her boyfriend Matt Grant in the city but instead was gifted with a sparkler of her finger in an elaborately orchestrated proposal.

Matt enlisted the help of 18 friends who held up hand crafted placards scrawled with ‘Will U Marry Me’ above the walls in Derry.

After clasping eyes on the message, Siobhan turned to find Matt on bended knee. Luckily for him she accepted and the message quickly turned to ‘Congratulations’.

The proposal, which took two weeks to plan, was captured on camera by the couple’s friend Tony Carlin.
