Business owner Aleasha Pilawa never said yes to all her boyfriend’s proposals.
The 36-year-old from Wales laughed off partner Paul Schoproni’s attempts to make her his wife – which she says he does about 30 times a day.
To make up for all the times she said no, Aleasha decided to plan an unforgettable proposal (and wedding) of her own.
She told Paul it was two of their friends’ wedding at which he was to be the best man.
On the big day, Aleasha turned up as the bride, decked in white, and asked Paul, 40, to marry her.
But she added her own flair, belting out a rendition of the 1978 Motown hit It Should’ve Been Me.
A flabberghasted Paul, realising what’s happening, then cheekily said no before running off.
They then said yes to one another and imminently got married. They are now planning their honeymoon.
There’s only so many proposals one relationship can endure after all.
‘For the last two years he’s proposed to me about 30 times a day,’ explained Aleasha.
‘I’m doing a degree in HR management and running two tyre repair garages so having someone asking to marry you all the time can be exhausting.
‘Besides I’ve been married twice already and was a bit reluctant to go through all that again.
‘He used to do things like stand outside there in the morning as I drove past holding a billboard saying “will you marry me?” – proper embarrassing.
‘So I thought I’d finally put him out of his misery.’
Mum-of-three Aleasha told Paul he was attending a humanist vow renewal ceremony for his friends Kevin and Heidi.
To make sure he wasn’t getting suspicious, Aleasha had methods to throw him off.
‘He did get suspicious once or twice so I’d have to create an argument just so I could be alone to plan our wedding,’ she said.
‘So, yes, there were a few nights when he ended up sleeping outside in the van, bless him.’
Not doing anything in half measures, Aleasha wore a custom-made wedding gown and whipped up a three-tier wedding cake with Paul none the wiser.
She also organised a wedding-worthy ride for the couple; a pink car complete with a white ribbon going down the front.
‘I never suspected it for one minute,’ admitted Paul.
‘[When] she came singing our song – I thought it was a joke at first.
‘And even now, despite the fact I’ve probably watched the video a hundred times, I still can’t quite believe it.
‘Fair play – I have to say I’m pretty impressed she managed to do all that.’
Big day for Paul, he got proposed to and married on the same day.
