This barmy boyfriend baffled his bride-to-be with a double-barreled shotgun wedding proposal surprise.

In Kendalville, Indiana, USA, Macie Price is about to try out boyfriend Corey Herr’s brand new shotgun, but as she takes aim, she’s left rather confused after pulling the trigger to little avail.

Appearing to be jammed, Macie tries to inspect the chamber to see what might be causing the apparent blockage.

With a little assistance from her doting boyfriend of four years, Macie is left perplexed when she reaches inside the of the gun and pulls out a bundle of string and ribbon.

‘It looks like a party-popper’ declares the soon-to-be bride, but it all becomes clear when she notices a shimmering diamond amongst the scraps, prompting Corey to get down on one knee and ask the four magic words, ‘Will you marry me?’

Delighted that she said ‘Yes’, Corey said: “I’d had the ring at the ready for about three months, but had so many different ideas for how I was going to do it.

“Then suddenly this idea came to me the day before, so I finally committed and went for it

“I was surprised I managed to keep it from her for so long.

“I was so nervous and overwhelmed that she said yes, I ended up putting the ring on the wrong finger.

“It was an emotional moment for us both – Macie started crying, too.

“We’re so excited for what the future holds; we’ve booked our venue for June 30th next year.”
