What started as a normal flight for Austrian Airline passenger Nathaly turned into a trip she’ll remember for a lifetime after her boyfriend Jürgen got down on one knee and proposed to her on the plane.

The surprise was not over then, however, as Jürgen suddenly produced a wedding dress, witnesses and an official to carry out the ceremony there and then.
Luckily for him, she said yes and the two got hitched in the aisle in front of fellow passengers and the airline staff.
Jürgen even arranged for a violinist to serenade his bride as she walked down the aisle.
The special moment was captured by a blogger who happened to be sitting next to the bride on the plane when the boyfriend proposed.
“I'm so excited, I was sitting right next to the bride and got sooo emotional when her boyfriend surprised her,” blogger Tatjana Catic wrote online.
Austrian Airlines, who were in on the surprise, also provided a cake and tweeted a picture of the engagement and the happy couple after they got married.
The plane - which was flying from Vienna to Athens - then went on to land in Greece where the couple were ready to celebrate their honeymoon.
