A flash mob of dancing hula hoopers might not be your idea of a romantic marriage proposal, but for Jo Mondy, the surprise performance (choreographed and led by her gold Spandex-wearing boyfriend Andy Broughton) was perfect.

Mondy, who runs a hula hooping school in England (don't worry, we didn't know this was a thing, either—but sign us up!) thought she was just going on a picnic with friends when she visited Brighton's Pavilion Gardens on Oct. 6. Even when dozens of her students came out of a nearby building dressed in color-coordinated outfits, an elaborate, viral video-worthy proposal never crossed her mind. "Most of the people in the flash mob were my friends and students that I teach," Mondy told The Argus, "At first I thought they'd put something together for me as their teacher, but I was getting really confused as to why Andy was leading it all."

The three-minute performance ended with Broughton running through a tunnel of hula hoopers and getting on one knee to propose to Mondy, whose shock is obvious. As far as unexpected proposals go, this one is pretty darn adorable—not only did her fiancé incorporate things she loves and people that are important to her, he pulled it off without her ever having an inkling of what was going on! "He's an art director and really creative but I didn't predict that," says Mondy.

So what will the Broughton-Mondy wedding look like? The dancers performed in royal purple and gold getups, so it seems there are already some strong contenders for purple bridesmaid dresses, perhaps. What we're sure every guest at the wedding will be waiting for is their first dance. Will they shimmy with hula hoops? What about another group dance number with friends and family? Either way, it seems like there's a pretty good chance for a second viral wedding video in this couple's future.
