London, Dec 22 (ANI): A young fellow from UK made quite an impression when he proposed to his girlfriend with an underwater 'Will you marry me?' sign in an aquarium.

Matthew Batts, 22, decided to propose to his girlfriend by enlisting the help of a diver at Bristol's Blue Reef Aquarium, who placed the 'Rachael, Will you marry me?' sign in the aquarium's giant tropical ocean display.

"Rachael works as an animal carer for the Bath Cats and Dogs Home and she has always loved all types of animals," the Daily Mail quoted Batts, from Chippenham, Wiltshire, as saying.

"I wanted to propose somewhere which was a bit different and in a way we would both always remember," he said.

McManus, from Keynsham, Somerset, accepted the proposal.

"She was shocked to say the least. She didn't see it coming and I was very happy when she gave me the instant answer of 'yes'," Batts added.

Diver Dan de Castro said he was quite nervous about helping Batts out.

"Thankfully it all went according to plan and Rachael was in just the right place when I held the sign up. Even through the glass and the water it was clear that she had said 'yes' and we could all breathe a sigh of relief," he said.

The couple plans to get married within the next couple of years. (ANI)
