Audience applaud surprise proposal at festival

David proposes to Elise before concert goes at Llangollen.

Festival goers in Llangollen got more entertainment than they bargained for when a Wrexham man proposed to his girlfriend before a concert began.

As an audience of thousands looked on as 28-year-old David Jackson of Ruabon, went up on stage and down on one knee to romantically pop the question to Elise Davies, 26, at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod.

Elise said, “I had no idea David was going to ask me to marry him, especially in such a public place. I was absolutely gobsmacked when he did it and couldn’t speak for a few seconds but then I said yes because the whole thing was so romantic.”

The audience at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod cheered them on.

The couple haven't named the day just yet as they are waiting for their first baby to be born.
