 How to propose...A Celebrant in France with some more ideas.

Nearly there...the 29th is looming ever nearer for those who have decided to make a Leap Year proposal to their beloved...( who should have proposed on Valentine's Day!!)

So here is a round up of some more of my favourite proposals...

I loved the groom who told me that he had planned the proposal so carefully - it was to be on a small Greek island, silvery sand, the sound of gentle waves lapping the shore - champagne, ready to be popped, in the picnic basket - and then the stunning sunset and the proposal.

It was all going to plan - a lovely warm, cloudless evening and just them on the beach. Just them on the beach? At sunset...? Unusual he wondered...It was then he realised that they were on the wrong side of the island to see the sun setting...

But he went ahead, it was still perfect and yes, she said yes...





See original imageOne of my brides told me that her groom surprised her with his proposal: she had arrived home from a winter's evening run - she was exhausted, hot, sweaty, covered in mud and unattractively 'rosy'. As she opened the door she saw a trail of candles leading upstairs ...she thought there had been a power cut - but then she saw the trail of rose petals too ...they led to the bedroom where her beloved was on one knee, champagne poured and ready...(she and I sensed a girlfriend's hand in the romance of that one...)

Of course she said yes....




See original imageAnd finally, for this Leap Year, I liked the proposal on the bridge in Amsterdam. It was Christmas Eve and very busy on the bridge when the groom hurled himself to one knee proffering the ring - and, of course, himself...cyclists stopped, car horns hooted and as the bride said yes and he stood, a firework went off ...

The bride was thrilled at his planning - he winked at me as she told it...the firework was pure serendipity. 

It's nearly Spring - have a good year whether you propose or not...
