The editor of a city entertainment magazine came up with an unusual way of proposing to his girlfriend through a review in the title.
Martin Booth, who edits the Bristol 24/7 monthly magazine, came up with an acrostic in a review of a cafe he wrote for this month’s magazine, in order to propose to his partner Jo.
The letters at the start of each paragraph in his review of Bearittos, pictured below, spelt out “Jo, will you marry me?”
Luckily for Martin, who began his career in the regional press, Jo accepted his proposal and now the couple are planning their wedding for August.
Said Martin: “Jo said yes, fortunately. I think that she was delighted to be proposed to in such an unusual way!”
The couple have been together for six years and have two young daughters, Mersina and Lois.
He transformed his Bristol Culture blog into a website in 2013 before becoming editor of Bristol 24/7 last year.
