Corn-y romantic proposes to his girlfriend 200ft above crop circle

Corn-y romantic ‘pops’ the big question to his sci-fi loving girlfriend with a giant crop circle as they hovered 200ft above in a helicopter

  • Varun Bhanot, 28, asked Anisha Seth, 28, to marry him in a surprise helicopter ride he said was for his birthday
  • He spent nearly three months calling farmers to find a field with the help of his excited brother and sister
  • Giant message was written near the Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire 
  • Anisha said she ‘felt like a queen’ after the unusual proposal and that Varun ‘genuinely is a creative genius’

A corn-y romantic pulled out all the stops to impress his sci-fi loving girlfriend – by proposing 200ft above a message carved out in a field.

Varun Bhanot, 28, told his girlfriend Anisha Seth, 28, that they would be going up in a helicopter to celebrate his birthday – but instead had a surprise planned for her. 

Anisha, who loves all things sci-fi and space related, got into the helicopter expecting they would be flying over the Cheshire countryside, near the Jodrell Bank Observatory, Cheshire. 

Corn-y romantic Varun Bhanot, 28, proposed to his girlfriend of four years in a helicopter 200ft above the important question carved into a cornfield. Mr Bhanot kept the request simple and opted out of carving ‘will you’ at the beginning 

Mr Bhanot told new fiance Anisha Seth, also 28, that they would be going up in a helicopter over the Cheshire countryside to celebrate his birthday. Luckily the sci-fi and space fan was keen for the flight  

The accountant had no idea that at 200ft there was an important message for her in a cornfield.  

Keeping his carving short and opting to loose the traditional ‘will you’ on the question, Mr Bhanot blew his wife-to-be away with his proposal on Friday August 3.

Impressed Miss Seth said: ‘I think I sort of knew it was coming – but that weekend I was so blindsided by it being his birthday. I genuinely had no idea, my guard was completely down.’

Thoughtful Mr Bhanot had spent nearly three months calling farmers asking if he could make a crop circle on their land and eventually found someone willing.

Even better, the field was close to the Lovell Telescope, at the Jodrell Bank Observatory, tying in with his new fiance’s interest in the skies.

Keeping the rouse up until the last moment Mr Bhanot first told his girlfriend they were going to indulge in a spa day for his upcoming birthday and then that he’d been given a voucher for a helicopter experience.

Impressed Miss Seth said ‘yes’ straight away to her lovestruck boyfriend. She said: ‘I think I sort of knew it was coming – but that weekend I was so blindsided by it being his birthday. I genuinely had no idea, my guard was completely down’

Bride-to-be Seth said: ‘I was just swept off my feet, I was so overwhelmed. It was like shell-shock. I love fields and farmland, so it was perfect.’ ‘I feel like Varun listened to everything I ever said. All I can say is I felt like a queen’

After Mr Bhanot popped the question the delighted couple stopped in the field for a picnic. Once they returned home he whisked his bride-to-be off in a Rolls Royce to the Ritz where his family had arranged candles and roses

He said: ‘Luckily she loved it and thought it was a fun thing to do.’

Mr Bhanot began to make a mid-air speech to his girlfriend of four years and told her to look out of the window, as he presented her with an engagement ring.

‘I pulled the ring out and she said ‘yes’ right away. 

The soon-to-be groom’s family were also in on the large scale proposal. 

Mr Bhanot said: ‘My brother and sister helped out with calling farms – we just worked our way through Yellow Pages.’ 

His fiancée added:’I was so lucky as the bride-to-be with how involved his family was. He genuinely is a creative genius.’ 

When the couple arrived home on the train, Miss Seth expected they would drive back to east London and was astonished when a Rolls Royce appeared, reports New York Post.

It whisked the couple off to the Ritz where Bhanot’s family had arranged candles and roses.

Bride-to-be Miss Seth said: ‘I was just swept off my feet, I was so overwhelmed. It was like shell-shock. I love fields and farmland, so it was perfect.

‘I feel like Varun listened to everything I ever said. All I can say is I felt like a queen.’
