Matthew Bennett didn’t find love on Married At First Sight, but it turns out he didn’t need expert help to build a loving, lasting relationship.

Now, the 32-year-old has excitedly announced he is engaged to his girlfriend of two years, Annabel Jameson.

The filmmaker proposed to his British partner on Halloween, and he took to his Instagram to break the exciting news days later.

He captioned the love-filled pictures with a note about how much their relationship means to him.

“She said “YES!” It took me long enough to ask, but @belajameson, you are the best thing that ever happened to me, and I’m excited for our life together. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,” he wrote.

Matt chose to pop the question at the Mountainview Alpaca Farm, and the furry animals looked very intrigued by their excitement.

As expected, good wishes and congratulatory messages quickly filled up the post.
