Let’s face it, we all love a sweet movie proposal. Romantic, heart-warming and brings a tear to the eye. There are some silver screen marriage proposals that have become iconic and recreated the whole world over. Here, we celebrate some of the best:
Jamie and Aurélia, Love Actually
Colin Firth’s character falls for his Portuguese housekeeper but communication is tough. He finally manages to propose to her in Portuguese that he’s been learning, and she replies in English, as she too wanted to communicate better with him. Very romantic!
Harry and Sally, When Harry Met Sally
This film is iconic for several reasons, not to mention the infamous orgasm scene! First the couple were enemies, then friends, then a couple and then exes – phew! Harry finally realises she’s the one on New Year’s Eve and dramatically runs after her to tell her he wants to spend the rest of life with her, starting that very moment.

Maggie and Ike, Runaway Bride
Julia Roberts as Maggie had left 4 men at the altar! She ends up being the one to propose to Ike so maybe she felt she had to be in control of her destiny. Fifth time lucky maybe?
Mr. Big and Carrie, Sex and the City
After being given the run around by Mr Big and him not even showing up to their wedding, it all seems to end happily for the pair. He explains that first time round was ‘all business’ and didn’t feel right, so he chooses to do it properly and get down on one knee in a Fifth Avenue Penthouse and asks her, as the love of his life, to please be his wife.
Noah and Allie, The Notebook
A classic tale of love across different social classes. Allie is set to wed Lon as her family desires, but she has fallen for Noah, a poor country boy. He is prepared to fight for her though and says he wants all of her forever!
Ferris and Sloane, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
He might have been just a teen but after the most fun day ever bunking off from school, how could Sloane refuse Ferris Bueller’s half-hearted marriage proposal? It definitely looks on the cards as he leaves at the end of the day, shouts ‘I love you’ and she whispers that he’s going to marry her.
Edward and Bella, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
When a vampire promises to love you forever, he really means forever!
