Which destination topped the list?

For those who want to hop on a plane and fly their beau somewhere romantic to get engaged, luxury ethical jewellery specialists Ingle and Rhode have trawled through thousands of Instagram hashtags to find the most popular destinations to propose in 2016.

Researchers combined data from four Instagram hashtags - #isaidyes, #proposal, #proposed and #heproposed - which pulled out more than 250,000 photos in total.

They then identified the location of each proposal image by checking the longitude and latitude. This data was then cross referenced to the nearest city and revealed the most popular locations for people to get engaged.
