The World's Most Romantic Photobooth Snaps

I don't know about you but I've become so used to seeing photobooths in supermarkets and shopping centres that, actually, I no longer see them. They're simply part of the background. For many people though, these little rooms have been the scene of countless important moments over the years and as a result hold some cherished memories. One such event is the marriage proposal. That's right – a growing number of men and women are choosing the trusty old photobooth as the perfect space in which to get down on bended knee and pop the question, and actually it's not difficult to see the appeal when faced with perfectly romantic, surprise-filled sets of photos like the ones below.
