Surprise Marriage Proposal at Painshill Park
This Surrey proposal photography shoot was one of my favourites! As a Surrey engagement photographer, I have captured many couples in love celebrating their engagements. However, rarely do I get the opportunity to photography a surprise proposal! When Fraser contacted me about his proposal idea, it was so exciting. Not just because Fraser planned his marriage proposal in one of the most romantic places in Surrey, but also because his partner had no idea it was going to happen.
In terms of Surrey engagement photography locations, you are spoiled for choice. Having a surprise engagement proposal at Painshill Park emits serious Bridgerton vibes (yes during lockdown I watched the whole series). The scenery around the park is not too bad on the eye. With its sweeping paths and ornate bridges, the park lends itself for beautiful images.
When planning surprise Surrey proposal photography, contact is key. After a couple of secret phone calls to decide when and where Fraser wanted to propose, we developed a plan together. Kind of like a first date, we decided when, where and what time. Even down to what each of us were wearing!
Gorgeous Surrey Proposal Photography at Painshill Park
Staying ahead of the game is essential to planning a surprise proposal. So on the day, I waited incognito, patiently awaiting the arrival of the unsuspecting Helena and Fraser. As they walked up to The Gothic Tower, there was so much excitement in the air. As Fraser got down on one knee I snapped away, and moved closer as Helena said yes. There was so much love and happiness looking through my camera lens. Frasers surprise proposal was the perfect antidote to months of mundane lockdown.
I love Surrey proposal photography shoots, but I also adore finding new locations to capture love. If you are planning a surprise proposal or a couples shoot further afield then take a look at this London engagement photography session.
