Graphic Designer Uses Gigantic Billboard To Propose To Girlfriend – And Asks For Answer By Text


SWNS/The Sun

Graphic designer Gareth Illidge plucked up the courage to make a big romantic gesture to his girlfriend by designing a billboard. He also added a string of emojis to his very public gesture – and the hastag “don’t say no this cost a fortune”.

He proposed to Becci Thourgood, opted for the ring, kiss and church emoji – before cheekily including the aubergine.

Gareth said: “I wanted to do something out of the ordinary by asking the big question on a local billboard. I think the main reason was because I’m quite a shy person and wanted to do something a little out of character. Thankfully she said ‘yes’ and we had builders honking their vans at us and people from The Travellers Rest pub came out to cheer us on. I’m very pleased with how it all went.”

He added: “We’ve since had dozens of phone calls from people saying they’d seen the billboard and loved it. It makes for a good story to tell people rather than doing something cliché. She was really surprised by it, and possibly a little embarrassed.”
