It took five months for Ray Smith to finish proposing to his girlfriend, because his elaborate proposal consisted of him taking 148 pictures in which he popped the question. Smith's now fiancée Claire Bramley somehow never realized that her partner had spent months taking pictures of the two of them while displaying a card that read "Will you marry me." Finally on Christmas Day, Smith asked Bramley to her face. This time she figured out what was happening, and said yes.
