A student graduating from the University of South Wales yesterday proposed to his girlfriend while receiving his degree.

Redmond Jenkins, a 29 year old civil engineering student, said on stage: “I’ve come along with my gorgeous girlfriend, we’ve been together for 10 years… Kelly Jones, will you marry me?”

His girlfriend shouted “Yes!” from the audience. 

“I was expecting it, but not at that point,

“I was speechless, totally taken aback and I couldn’t believe it. I love him to pieces.” she said after the proposal.
