The film was first spotted by Tina Fotherby via a tweet to MOT Models from the Model Tess Montgomery about her fiancé Garth Chamberlain, who had just proposed to her. The tweet included a link to an amazing YouTube film he had produced. The film is here and was noteworthy for the great story that tugged at the heart strings, high production values, including expert editing and superb music. At the time the film was spotted it had around 200 views but Tina knew that it had all of the ingredients for a film that would go viral globally. It had all the makings of a very modern day wedding proposal, packed with a great deal of love and style.
What happened after the press release was distributed?
The story, with a link to the Press Release Wire story was Tweeted to key media contacts, in particular wedding bloggers who absolutely loved the story. The question was asked, ‘Is this the most romantic wedding proposal ever?’. The release and image was first picked up by wedding bloggers who helped get the message out there. Although she moved quickly to get the release out on the Monday when the film was first spotted, she noted it took 24 hours for anyone to pick up the story in a serious way.
