This guy gets serious brownie points for his Disney-themed proposal.

Man paints huge 'Beauty and the Beast' wedding proposal mural

Henry Barnes knew his girlfriend's favourite Disney movie is 'Beauty and the Beast' so he decided to incorporate the classic film into his very creative marriage proposal.

It took Henry - a Bristol-based grafitti artist - two days and 30 cans of spray paint to complete the giant 'Marry Me' mural so we imagine he was fairly nervous about his girlfriend's reaction.

On the big day, Henry took girlfriend Stacey Smith for a coffee and designed it so that they would walk right by the illustrated proposal.

When Stacey saw the mural, it took her a few seconds but when she realised what was happening she burst into tears - and said yes!

"Henry didn’t even say anything to me - I walked around the corner and just saw the piece, it was so unexpected I just burst into tears.

"It did all feel a bit unreal and then Henry got down on one knee. It was incredibly romantic and it also felt very strange because there were a lot of people around who started clapping and cheering", said Stacey.

Standard = raised, fellas.

They HAVE to play this as their first song.
