One Kiwi actress, two rings and a double proposal to tell the grandkids about.

Former Shortland Street actress Fleur Saville told Woman's Day she been planning to pop the question to director/producer boyfriend Dean Cornish on a recent Southeast Asian adventure.

The pair have been dating since 2014 after meeting in LA, where Saville relocated for work five years ago.

Little did she know her partner had ideas of his own involving the temples of Angkor Wat, Cambodia, in early morning light.

On arrival at the ancient site, Cornish was quick to deliver his proposal and a temporary engagement band, which Saville accepted, according to the Woman's Day report.

Not to be outdone she came up with a split-second romantic gesture of her own.

Asking a passing tourist to take a photo she dropped to one knee and said: "will you marry me back?"

The rings had been burning holes in their pockets for just two days before they got the important question off their chests.

"Neither of us knew about the other's plans," Cornish said, adding he chose the moment because the intention to propose was weighing on his mind.

"I picked a moment and did it, I had no idea about Fleur's plan," he revealed to Woman's Day.

Both based in LA for work, the lovebirds are thinking of a Hollywood wedding, but have not talked about a timeline.
