The founder of a proposal planning company has revealed some of the most shocking marriage proposals whilst talking to Julia Hartley-Brewer.

Daisy Amodio, the founder of company The Proposers, told Julia Hartley-Brewer she arranged one with "a fake arrest in the middle of Times Square" which ended with "all of the screens in Times Square lit up with her face on it with 'will you marry me?'"

She also said one that cost £150,000 and included a private jet to fly his family and friends to Paris where the woman was surprised by them on a boat with a "swing made of florals where they could all swing on it.

"They had a logo about them saying 'will you marry me' on it with the Eiffel Tower literally behind it."

This proposal also included hiring out Disney Land "exclusively for them in the evening."

She appeared on Julia's show as a study published by the London Mint Office has found that one in 10 grooms take their bride's surname. It also found only 72% of married couples use the husband's name.

Amodio said: "I think it’s quite a lot but it doesn’t surprise me whatsoever because traditions are out the window these days."

She believes it's because "some people just have unfortunate names and they want to change it". Others already have double-barreled names, and adding more names "just doesn’t work. I think that’s why people really stopped doing it."
