There have been many unique and romantic proposals over the years, from scavenger hunts to written messages from the sky, but there’s rarely one that matches a skydiving proposal.
Sydneysider Nurojan Vivekanandamoorthy and his partner Suge Sritharan, both 28 years old, recently booked a trip to Queenstown, New Zealand, so they could tick off their bucket list adventure and jump out of a plane at 15,000 feet high.
Nurojan, unlike Suge, was not especially worried about the height, but more about what would happen during the fall. After seven years together, Nurojan had planned the most daring of proposals. He jumped first so he could be waiting at the bottom with a ‘Will you marry me’ banner, flowers, champagne and the all important engagement ring.
Did she say yes? Did she say no? Find out in the below video:
“Queenstown’s the perfect place for a proposal so I had my fingers crossed the weather would be good, although Suge took a bit of persuading to do the jump,” said Nurojan.
“She had quite a few butterflies but I was relieved and very happy when she landed and said ‘yes’. She was completely taken by surprise!”
This is definitely one of the more creative proposals out there. In the end, we’re just glad she said “yes”. Talk about a leap of faith.
The two have arranged for a big Sri Lankan wedding set for next year!
