A man’s proposal to girlfriend using street artJune 10, 2014
Henry Barnes, who lives in Bristol, got a surprise when his proposal became an internet hit, with his latest artwork receiving thousands of ‘likes’ on his Instagram and Flickr account.
Before long, local and international media got hold of his stunning Beauty and the Beast creation, with articles being published in Ireland, Canada and the United States.
Even celebrity blogger Perez Hilton sent his compliments and congratulations, but Henry says the main thing is “that my beautiful fiancée, Stacey, said “yes”.”
In an article on the Huffington Post, he writes: “On Monday morning, about five minutes after Stacey left the house, I began to put my proposal plan into action. I’ve based my street art around my favourite childhood cartoons and films for a couple of years;”
Henry chose Beauty and the Beast as inspiration for his proposal, because it was his fiancée’s favourite Disney film.
After nine hours, 30 cans of aerosol paint and hiding the evidence, his piece was finished and he was ready to propose to Stacey.
Stacey agreed to meet him at Stokes Croft, Bristol where he popped the question amongst nervous ramblings and retrieving the engagement ring from his pocket.
Now that’s what we call a proposal!
Congratulations to Henry and Stacey.
