Is it every modern girl’s dream to get proposed to by a drone? Perhaps not. But award-winning actress Zhang Ziyi looked pretty chuffed to see one flying towards her with a diamond ring in its grasp.
Chinese actress Zhang, who shot to fame after appearing in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and has also starred in Memoirs of a Geisha and House of Flying Daggers, is engaged to her musician boyfriend after he involved a drone in their big moment.
At Zhang’s 36th birthday party, Wang Feng sent her a white drone carrying a diamond ring before he dropped to one knee and asked her to marry him.
Chinese media reports quote composer and rock star Wang as saying: “Witnessed by all, we have experienced happiness and sorrow. I hope Ziyi can always have the happiest time. If we both are old, I can still take care of you.”

In a few years time drone proposals are likely to be old hat. But today it’s still a pretty unique way of popping the question. Other ways to include an unmanned aerial vehicle in the romantic moments in your life include having a drone take your wedding photographs or assuming the role of best man.
If you fancy giving it a go, start small. Remote control helicopter, anyone?
