Remarkable wedding proposal in Cardiff Bay
Updated: Dec 29, 2019
This time I was asked by Will, to help plan and manage a surprise proposal at Cardiff Bay - which is one of Europe's largest and most successful waterfronts. Of course, during the summer months this can be a busy location, and every photo shoot has to be properly timed.
I met Will the day before to plan and decide the perfect spot. I wanted to know a little bit more about his future bride and his expectations. Also, this was a perfect opportunity to coach and prepare him for the proposal. I gave him tips on what to wear, where to stand and proposal postures. For me as a photographer preparing and positioning him is vital to capturing the perfect shots.
Rachel had no idea of what was about to happen.
I hide my camera but was ready to start photographing.
The moment finally arrived and I had to move fast ...Rachel was indeed surprised and stunned
I came closer and continued shooting while trying not to distract the couple.
When the moment was finally over, I introduced myself to Rachel and congratulated them.
I suggested to have a mini couple session and take some first engagement pictures.
If you want to surprise someone special, I would love to hear from you!!!
