Everything is ready for the big moment.
The candles are lit. The weather is beautiful. Romantic environment.
The woman he loved above all else stood ready with his eyes closed.
And the 12,000 kroner ring was safe and sound in a box in his trouser pocket.
What could go wrong?
On June 15, Ross Bamber (26) dated his girlfriend Gerii Ashforth (23) at Norfolk lake outside Norwich in England. It was a slightly different experience than the two of them had hoped for.
– I took Gerii out on the dock, and when I opened the eska the ring said “no”, said Bamber BBC.
– I watched him jump along the pier. It stopped a bit between the boards, and I thought “wow”.
– Then fell into the sea.
The camera captures the entire session, and you can hear the ring bouncing off the dock. Because there is a little plop coming.
You can also hear the comments of the boyfriend, who is still standing with his hands in front of his eyes.
– That’s not what I thought, he asked in the video tik tok.
Gerii told the BBC he had a firm grasp of what Ross’s plans were, as he stood on the pier by the romantic lake with his eyes closed.
– I heard it bounce. I thought, ‘That can’t be my ring. My heart is beating fast “.
They got help from friends to find the ring, but even after experimenting with diving masks – and magnets – the experiments were useless.
But love conquers all.
The next day the couple went to Norwich and bought a new ring. Then they re-recorded the scene.
And after their other attempt finally engaged.
