How to propose...Celebrant in France shares her favourite wedding proposals...

Nearly February - and I've been thinking more and more of those potential brides out there, who are hoping for a Valentine's Day proposal.

If it doesn't happen, then, as I pointed out in my last blog, Carpe Diem, you should perhaps take matters into your own hands - it's a leap year!

To inspire both partners I thought that throughout February I'd share some of my favourite proposals of 2015 and 2016 so far...

Now all of these, so far, are proposals from the lovely men I have married - you may know from an earlier blog,...a toast to all my lovely bridegrooms how much I admire my grooms but I think all of these can be adapted...

This is the first - inspiration for all chocolate lovers - but doesn't have to be chocolate - or Easter - for this to work.

It was Easter last year, and Easter has always been a
special time for this couple because it was one of the
holidays that they could regularly spend time together during a long distance relationship.

It had become tradition that Gorgeous Groom would set up an Easter egg hunt on Sunday morning, and, even well into her twenties, on Easter Sunday Beautiful Bride would be happily scouting round the house, or wherever they happened to be, for chocolate eggs.

Last year, because they’d been living in Paris, they decided to go to Belgium – the chocolate capital of the world! - for Easter weekend. They rented a studio in Brussels.

That Sunday morning BB was thrilled to discover that at age twenty-eight, the tradition was still going strong… and so she hunted around the flat exploring every nook and cranny to find her chocolate hoard.

Except this year there was a difference – she didn’t just find chocolate eggs, but also chocolate letters...

After collecting everything in a bowl, she emptied it all on the table in the studio. GG then made her close her eyes and turn around… when he said she could turn back, he’d rearranged all the chocolate letters to spell “will you marry me” and was down on one knee with a beautiful ring!

I can't imagine them having an Easter egg hunt to top that one..

I love the chocolatey idea of that one, but particularly
love the thought and imagination that went into it. Well done that GG.

Next one is amusing, but still romantic...and you'll have to wait until next blog...
