A bride-to-be cried tears of joy after her boyfriend organised a flashmob at a Northampton town centre restaurant to propose.

Adam Hewson, from Kingsthorpe, proposed to Harriet Scott, from Barrack Road in Northampton town centre, at The Church Restaurant, in Bridge Street, in front of friends and family from across the country.

A video of the event shows Harriet, aged 23, waiting at the bar as her sister comes in singing A Thousand Years, from the hit film, Twilight.

More and more people then enter the room, creating a flashmob scene until a shocked Harriet is surrounded by her family and friends .

At the last moment, 30-year-old Adam enters, goes down on one knee and proposes to his tearful girlfriend.

Harriet said: “I know it sounds like some peoples’ worst nightmare, but I absolutely loved it, I was in my element.”

“We are leaving this week for a year on a round-the-world trip, so I thought the evening was going to be a goodbye meal with our parents. I even joked to Adam that they do weddings at the restaurant.

“When Adam nipped to the loo and our song started playing, I was about to start filming it on my phone, but then they all started walking in. I have never felt happiness like it.”

“It was a complete surprise, it was incredible.

“I grilled Adam later and he said he was really nervous and told me about all my sisters had done to plan the surprise, even delivering plans to everyone so I wouldn’t find out through social media.”

The Church manager, Alexandra Harding, said: “It was really heart-warming to see so many of them singing for one couple. When he got down on one knee, I cried.”
