Mr Bene told Daily Mail Australia he planned the proposal because he ‘wanted to do something special and different’ during their wedding reception.
His friend asked for his girlfriend’s hand in marriage during the bouquet throw, the bride spinning her friend around to show him on one knee with a ring in his hand.
The engaged couple are tying the knot in two months.
After posting the video on social media, Mr Bene was surprised to receive backlash from women who said the proposal ‘wrecked’ the wedding.

‘You wait your whole life for the perfect wedding day just for someone else to make it about them, I’m a good friend but I would never allow this,’ one woman wrote.
‘If anyone does this on my wedding I’m throwing hands,’ another remarked.
Mr Bene said the moment was ‘magical’ and the pair were ‘more than happy to give two minutes out of our night to our bestmates.’
Others were more supportive of the decision.
‘This is so beautiful and so selfless,’ one said and another commented they would do the same thing for their best friend ‘in a heartbeat.’
