Gone are the days when a simple bended knee and glass of champagne were enough to woo your partner into saying ‘yes’ forever.
Men around the world are outdoing each other by planning elaborate proposals – but if there was a prize for the most extravagant it might just go to New Zealand-based personal trainer Josef Rakich.
The ‘world’s number one online trainer’ asked his girlfriend of three years Maryam Matti to marry him with the help of a full camera crew, a hot pink Range Rover worth an estimated $100k and a decadent ring.
‘Yesterday I asked the the girl of my dreams to spend the rest of her life with me,’ he captioned a video on Instagram, which shows the moment his wife-to-be’s car was unveiled.
Josef blindfolded ‘Mimi’, as she is nicknamed, and flew her in a helicopter into Eden Park.
He picked her up and carried her to a place in the centre of the near-empty football stadium where a giant pink box stood waiting. You can hear the muffled sounds of her friends and family waiting beside it.
She turns towards the luxury box and slowly unravels a Tiffany-style white bow, a mass of white and pink balloons escaping to reveal a custom Range Rover convertible in the same hot pink shade as her blindfold.
While she’s preoccupied – taking in the glory of her new wheels – Josef gets down on one knee behind her, sparkling diamond in hand.
He didn’t even have to speak those four little words – the car’s windshield spelled out ‘Will you marry me?’ in fuchsia text.
This isn’t the first time Josef has gone above and beyond in the gift category.
On Valentine’s Day earlier this year he gifted Maryam 1,000 red roses – which were scattered around their home – and a very expensive lime green Lamborghini.
‘Off to give some of my Valentine’s Day flowers to the beautiful people at rest homes,’ Maryam wrote on social media at the time.
One thing is for sure – their wedding will be another tremendous day of surprises.
