Romantic proposal doesn't go entirely to plan
Many thanks to Warren Badenski from www.pickandmixfilms.co.uk for this footage - A teacher was swept off her feet by her knight in shining armour in front of her pupils yesterday. Mark Crayford took romantic gestures to the next level as he chose an extraordinary way to propose to girlfriend Tracey Badenski by turning up on a horse and wearing a suit of armour. The 49-year-old, from Kingshill, turned up on the grey horse, Dove, and rode onto the playing fields of Even Swindon Primary School, where Tracey is a teacher. The proposal did not go entirely smoothly as Mark was thrown to the floor as he tried to dismount, but he was pulled to his feet by Tracey before getting down on one knee to propose.
