Last Saturday I was lucky enough to photograph the most beautiful proposal! Tom had arranged to take his partner of 8 years, Ami, away for the long bank holiday weekend for some luxury glamping. Starbed Hideaways is tucked away in the grounds of Buckland Abbey in Devon near Plymouth and they were staying in one of the Shepherds Huts. He told me how he had been planning the perfect proposal for about a year and had thought of so many little touches throughout the weekend to make it extra special for Ami.
All that Ami knew was that they had booked to go out for dinner that evening and whilst she was finishing getting ready, Tom went to "move his car" and in fact came to meet me and chat through the proposal plan. He had picked out a beautiful spot near the Wisteria in the gardens, overlooking the hill through the mist and evening light. I found a place to hide and then he texted Ami asking her to come and meet him.
Tom walked Ami across to the spot he'd chosen and I started to photograph as soon as he was ready. Ami was of course over the moon and said yes straight away! After a little time spent together letting it sink in and many happy tears, we took some portraits in the gardens and then I left them to enjoy each others company.
It was such a privilege to photograph this for them and I'm so happy they have the photos to help them remember such a beautiful and special moment.
Here is a little selection of the photos x
