PICTURES: Dubai Civil Defence help man with adorable proposal

When it comes to engagements, people are taking creativity to new limits these days.

This is certainly true for one UAE resident who disguised himself as a fireman (with the permission of the Emirates Martyrs fire station) and proposed with the help of four friends who held up a handmade sign that read “Will you marry me?”

The happy occasion was documented by the Dubai Civil Defence unit who posted a series of snaps on its official Instagram page .

A post shared by الدفاع المدني دبي (@dcd997) on

“In a beautiful gesture first of its kind Emirates Martyrs fire station hosted engagement party of a couple who decided to celebrate their event in fire station.

“The fiancé donned firefighter uniform to assure his fiancée of his readiness to overcome any challenges they might face in life journey.”

And, of course, she said yes.

Her now fiancé posted an image of the proposal on Instagram along with the caption: “Don’t think this picture needs a caption but here goes! I asked and she said yes. Her obsession with firetrucks made me decide exactly how I wanted to make this happen. Thank you @dcd997 for making this possible. Truly a memorable event in the start of our adventure together. Couldn’t have had this any other way. More pictures and videos coming soon!”

Wow… is someone chopping onions?


The happy couple’s engagement isn’t the first to win over the nation. Dubai resident Luke Kettlewell captured the heart of the country when he popped the question to his partner, Sarah, at Dubai International Airport this past Valentine’s Day.

A friend told ShortList at the time that she was instructed to open a letter that was hidden in a cupboard, which told her to go to the airport, where she met Luke. They checked in and just before they boarded their flight to Paris, cabin crew from Air France popped out to shower the couple with rose petals as he proposed.

All together now, awwwwww.
