** Editorial shoot published in French Wedding Style blog **

Asking your soulmate and special someone to spend the rest of their life with you is an extraordinary moment and most probably one of the most memorable experiences of your life.

Planning the perfect marriage proposal at home or abroad – especially a surprise one – can sometimes be tricky and coming up with the right way to ask those four little words “Will you marry me?” can be a real challenge, even for the most romantic at heart. On top of which, the story of where it was done and how it was done will be told over and over again to friends, family and strangers for the rest of your lives.

Whew, that’s a lot of pressure!

But don’t worry, what you need is the perfect location, a beautiful engagement ring, lots of love and belief in the promise of a wonderful future together. Those are all the sweet things that have inspired me to create this gorgeous styled shoot which will hopefully give you some fabulous ideas to help you plan the ultimate proposal and to capture the “YES!” forever.

Jack and Alison are staying in a beautiful chateau in the south of France surrounded by elegant interiors steeped in history and lavish gardens perfect for intimate dining. Unbeknown to Alison, Jack has prepared a very special evening and sends her a beautiful handmade invitation asking her to join him for cocktails.

He nervously awaits her at the bottom of the stairs. Everything is planned to perfection, the candles are lit, the champagne is on ice and the words MARRY ME are surrounded by flowers.

Quelle surprise!

Of course she says “Oui” and he presents her with the ring.

A very big thank you goes to all the amazing people who worked alongside me to make this shoot so special.
