Thanks to social media, it is possible to witness all kinds of marriage proposals, from the most disgusting to the sweetest ever.

But nothing can beat this proposal in terms of spectacularity. It helps that both the future groom and bride are landscape photographers in Australia.

Dale Sharpe got down on bended knee to pop the question to Karlie Russell in front of a stunning northern lights display, in the heart of the Arctic Circle.

"It's taken a few years to plan but I (Dale) always had this moment in mind & it seemed fitting as we are both landscape photographers who share a passion for photographing the aurora," he said.

The original plan was to propose in Iceland, but Karlie unknowingly discarded the secretly stashed ring.

"We were trying to cut weight on a connecting flight from the Faroe Islands," he said.
