Groom’s signs spell out love for bride en route

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

ONE groom has just done the cutest thing we have ever seen for his wife-to-be on their wed­ding day.

Know­ing his fi­ancée Louise would be trav­el­ling north­bound along the A3 from Go­dalm­ing to Byfleet on their big day, Jon Bond de­cided to show her just how much he cared by plac­ing signs along bridges she’d see on the jour­ney.

He spelled out “L♥uise, let’s get mar­ried ♥Jon” on four hand­writ­ten signs at­tached to bridges on her route, be­tween Guild­ford and Wis­ley.

Some peo­ple thought it was a mar­riage pro­posal but Jon, 32, told Sur­rey Ad­ver­tiser, on Sun­day (Septem­ber 10) that he wanted to make the day ex­tra spe­cial.

“It was an easy sur­prise but some­times the easy ones are the most ef­fec­tive,” he said. “It was hard work,” he laughed. “But peo­ple were toot­ing their horns and wav­ing at us as we were do­ing it which was re­ally nice. It was re­ally nice.”

Jon and Louise, 26, have been to­gether for six years and mar­ried on Satur­day (Septem­ber 9) at Sil­ver­mere Golf Club in Byfleet, sur­rounded by their friends and fam­ily.

“[The signs were] a bit of a tear­jerker,” Jon added.

“Our guests said that they saw [them] too – it had the de­sired ef­fect!

“I’m sur­prised no-one has done it be­fore, it just came to me and I de­cided to do it.”

The cou­ple, from Byfleet, said their wed­ding day was “very spe­cial” – they’re go­ing to en­joy a sa­fari hon­ey­moon in South Africa and Mau­ri­tius soon.

Af­ter speak­ing to Sur­rey Ad­ver­tiser, Jon went to take the signs down on Sun­day af­ter­noon. A mon­u­men­tal and very, very sweet ef­fort, Jon.
