AN Abingdon woman got more than she bargained for when she stepped into her new home for the first time and her partner dropped to one knee and proposed.

Charlotte Langham-West, 23, thought her partner of three years, Russell Comley, 27, had been acting strangely all day, but put it down to the nerves of moving into their new home on Grove Airfield.

Mr Comley asked staff from housing developer Persimmon Homes to help him surprise his partner on the day they collected the keys to the house.

He said: "I insisted Charlotte entered our new home first and as she headed in, she noticed the sign that read ‘Charlotte, my princess, turn around’, but to her surprise, as she turned around I was on one knee with a ring."

Miss Langham-West said: “It was a complete surprise. There were lots of tears – happy tears of course! It was all very overwhelming, but wonderful. It’ll be a day to remember – buying our dream first home and a proposal."

The happy couple have moved into a three-bedroom home at the Wellington Gate estate.

Miss Langham-West added: “Persimmon Homes have truly made all our dreams come true and we couldn’t be more grateful for our beautiful to them new home.

“They even went as far as helping my fiancé to propose by fitting the proposal banner on the living room door."
