Elena’s boyfriend let the mob rule!

Pick Me Up! - - LITTLE PICK ME UPS! - Elena Raouna, 26, Don­caster

Pos­ing in front of the Eif­fel Tower, last June, I’d never felt hap­pier. My boyfriend Kyri, 30, and I were cel­e­brat­ing our birth­days.

We met on a beach in Cyprus, in Septem­ber 2015

and had been in­sep­a­ra­ble for the rest of the hol­i­day.

He lived in Tewskbury, miles away, but we stayed in touch. And soon be­came an item.

Our birth­days are two days apart, so we went to Paris to­gether next year.

Af­ter four days, we flew back to

Leeds Brad­ford.

In Ar­rivals, I saw my sis­ter Sophia, 20. Why was she here? Then a mob of in­cred­i­ble dancers formed, and pulled Kyri and I into the mid­dle!

Sud­denly, Kyri’s par­ents, Chrysan­thi and Costa, his sis­ter Lia, brother Lam­bros, grandma Maria, and best pal, Phelpsy showed up, along with my par­ents Christina and Harry!

They were hold­ing cards that spelled out, Elena Will You Marry Me.

Kyri was on one knee, hold­ing out a ring.

Burst­ing into tears, I nod­ded… in a flash!

The air­port lounge erupted in cheers.

He’s set the bar high now for our wed­ding day, in May next year.

But that’s one day I won’t mind be­ing sur­rounded by a mob – of fam­ily and friends!

Us sur­rounded by the dancers Our fam­i­lies hold the words

We’d just got back from Paris
