After months of preparation the day finally arrived where Sham and Orva were to be engaged, yeppie.
The theme of the proposal was a ‘gallery of happiness’. Orva loves Art and as such enjoys visiting galleries and exhibitions regularly, so it wasn’t a shock that a gallery was the destination of the day.
We worked with Sham to create 10 canvases. Each canvas had something on it that Sham knew was important to Orva and made her happy – from penguins and phantom of the opera tickets, to New York and Cupcakes. Here at The Proposers HQ, we know how important it is to make proposals personal so this was a great way of showing Orva how much Sham cared.
And this is what happened….
The scene was set at Orleans House Gallery in Richmond. It’s such a stunning building within woodland and overlooking the Thames. It was built in 1721 for Queen Caroline – if it’s good enough for a queen then it’s perfect for Orva.
So, how did we make this proposal idea perfect for Orva and Sham? As you know, we believe every proposal should be personalised, so here’s what we did:
Sham’s Nickname for Orva is “Cups” so we decorated the venue with vintage cups full of her favorite flowers
Orva loves art (She even draws herself!) so we knew we had to incporporate an arty theme into the proposal? What beter way to do this than to have canvas’ with images that meant something to the couple: Their favourite holiday, her favourite things, and memories they have shared together.
For the final canvas we actually use one of Orva’s own designs which we “borrowed” from her pinterest page. We wrote “Will you marry me” over the top of the gorgeous painted heart
We also got The Proposers phootgrapher to take sneaky papazazzi style shots so that the couple had photos of the proposal to remember forever!
So, what did the man himself saty about using The Proposals to help with his proposal?
”The proposal went like a dream – the venue was beautiful and the setup was perfect. I wanted the day to be both memorable and unique which is exactly how it was so it couldn’t have gone any better! Daisy and Tiffany were simply amazing throughout and I enjoyed working with them to come up with such a personal proposal.” Sham
