Amy Morley took full advantage of the extra day in February and popped the question to her partner David Pepper

Proposals are always romantic, sometimes surprising and, in the case of this marital message, thoroughly unique.

Taking full advantage of the leap year, Amy Morley, from Saltburn , went to all of the effort of popping the question to her partner David Pepper by designing a Minecraft video game – and he absolutely loved it.

Gaming fan David, 22, said: “We both love Minecraft and often play it together, so for Amy to make something so personal to us is really special.

“I knew she was up to something but I didn’t know what. After the first few seconds of watching the video I could see where it was going.

“Just as the words ‘Will you marry me’ appeared on the screen, I turned and saw Amy holding a ring. I couldn’t believe it.”

The rollercoaster video, which Amy, 24, overlaid with the song Love Is An Open Door from Disney’s Frozen film – has been a huge hit online, having been shared thousands of times.

The two minute clip is made extra special with a picture of the couple’s five-month-old son Joel asking the all important question.

And did he say yes? Of course he did!

“It was a really cute idea,” added David, who met Amy two years ago.

“A lot of people may find it embarrassing for a woman to propose to a man, but we don’t.

“I’m absolutely over the moon and can’t wait to start planning the future.”
