Pride in London is fast becoming famous for its ridiculously romantic marriage proposals.

Last year saw two uniformed policeman getting engaged to one another in scenes that went viral around the world.

As well as PC Sam Philpot popping the question to PC Martin Coughlan, another policeman PC Phil Adlem proposed to his partner Jonathan Sammons.

And the police were well-represented this year too, when a woman named Dizzy proposed to her British Transport Police officer girlfriend Jane – who said yes, of course.

But this Pride proposal may well be the most adorable yet.

The London-based Kings Cross Steelers were founded back in 1995 as the first ever gay inclusive rugby union club.

They’re a regular fixture at Pride, and had been posting regular updates throughout the day.

During this year’s Parade, they looked to be doing a normal rugby line out set-piece for the crowds.

Fernando Ferreira stepped out from his team and sauntered over to the barrier.

There he met eyes with his boyfriend Greg Woodford and dropped to one knee…

Well, you know the rest, but you can watch the video in its full wonderful glory.

And of course, he said yes – and Fernando and Greg are now engaged to be married.

Also marching with the Kings Cross Steelers this year was former England captain and Harlequins flanker Chris Robshaw, who got plenty of attention from those in attendance.

Pride in London was a significant and sunny success, attracting people from all over the city, country and globe.

Speaking at the event, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan told PinkNews about the importance of fighting against discrimination using love.

Many establishment centres, which were not always so pro-LGBT, also got in on the Pride action, with the Houses of Parliament, MI6 and Guildhall London being illuminated with rainbow lights and flying the Pride flag.
