South of France Proposal

Are you thinking of popping the question? Why not do it in Europe! We've created a list of some of the best places to propose in Europe, recommended by our team of expert proposal planners. 

Best Places to Propose in Europe

1) London, England

We're based in Soho, so of course London has to be our list! Our most popular proposals happen at The Shard, The London Eye and Tower Bridge. These are not only the most popular locations in London, but some of the most popular proposal locations in Europe, and can all be made personal to you. For example did you know that you can rent and decorate the walkway above Tower Bridge, or get your own private pod on the London Eye, complete with musicians?

2) Paris, France

The city of love is of course on the list! Like any capital it can often be very crowded when taking in the sights, so we just love proposals on your own private terrace with a view of the Eiffel Tower. This means that you can avoid the crowds while still having an epic view as the backdrop to your proposal.

3) Santorini, Greece

The most popular European proposal location in the summer is Santorini. It's warm weather and magnificent views of the Aegean Sea and the caldera make for the perfect backdrop for a proposal. Take a walk along the idyllic white sand, and come across your own private hideaway.

4) Iceland

Iceland has some the most picturesque views in Europe. Most people go to Iceland for the Northern Lights, but these are never guaranteed and there are so many more hidden gems that we just love. The Þórufoss waterfall, and "love mountain" are two of our personal favourites. Take a tour with a personal tour guide to the best locations, and then drop down on one knee with an amazing view in the background.

5) Kotor, Montenegro

Not many people know about the beauty of Montenegro, but we absolutely love it for a proposal. With epic views of Kotor, you can have your own private dinner with a view, and then drop down on one knee with the beautiful backdrop.

Provence has incredible views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea as well as some amazing and very famous gardens. Propose in a stunning seaside villa with the magnificent landscape of the Côte d’Azur as your breathtaking backdrop.

7) Ibiza, Spain

Although mainly known for its nightlife, the island of Ibiza has many beautiful sights, beaches and things to do. We can hire a private beach with the most beautiful cabana, that we can decorate into a romantic beach setting for a proposal, while you get incredible views of the island.

8) Venice, Italy

What could be more romantic than a gondola ride through Venice's famous canals? There is something dreamy about a proposal on the water, with charming and breathtaking views. If you're going to propose here, then you're best to avoid tourists and find a quiet romantic spot just for you, to create an unforgettable moment.

9) Rome, Italy

While we're on the topic of Italy, Rome is another one of the most beautiful places in Europe to propose. You can take in the sights with a private tuk tuk or horse carriage tour of Rome including the Trevi Fountain, The Colosseum and the Vatican. Then we can decorate a beautiful terrace or location like the Temple of Diana (below) for you to drop down on one knee with your partners favourite song being planned by a traditional Roman band.

10) Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh is full of romantic locations all year round that make the ideal backdrop for a picture-perfect proposal, from beautiful gardens to historic castles. We love Circus Lane (below) as its one of Edinburgh's most inviting streets. It is filled with cobbled streets, little houses and has a unique rustic setting.

11) Lake District, UK

When coming to the UK, most people come to visit London, but Lake District has some of the most picturesque views in the country. The beautiful scenery and idyllic lakes make for the ideal place to drop down on one knee.

12) Vienna, Austria

Vienna is known for its stunning modern architecture, cultural events and its charm. We absolutely love Vienna in winter, where it has some of the most amazing Christmas markets, but it is a great city for a proposal all year round.
