Kyoto Garden Proposal 

Love has a way of transforming ordinary moments into extraordinary memories. And what could be more magical than proposing amidst the serenity and beauty of the Kyoto Gardens in Holland Park, London? This hidden gem, gifted by the city of Kyoto to commemorate the enduring friendship between Japan and Great Britain, holds the promise of a truly enchanting and romantic experience.

As you step foot into the Kyoto Gardens, a sense of tranquility washes over you. The meticulously manicured landscape, vibrant florals, serene waterfalls, and ornate stone lanterns, transports you to a world of peace and harmony. Offering a picturesque backdrop for the special question; ‘Will you marry me?’.

Over the past few years, we have been fortunate to orchestrate countless memorable proposals at the Kyoto Gardens. We are delighted to share a glimpse of one such occasion—a simple yet exquisitely beautiful proposal we had the honour of creating for this wonderful couple.

The Kyoto Gardens in Holland Park are more than just a beautiful location; they are a testament to the enduring bond between Japan and Great Britain. Opened in 1991, the garden symbolises the deep friendship shared by these two nations. This rich history and symbolism makes for a great sense of grace and romanticism, making it an ideal spot for a marriage proposal.

Every proposal is unique, reflecting the love story of the couple embarking on a lifelong journey together. As the number one proposal planning company, we love making the clients dreams come true. The Kyoto Gardens offer a multitude of spots to orchestrate the perfect proposal. Whether it's beneath the gentle shade of a cherry blossom tree, beside the tranquil pond with koi fish gliding gracefully beneath the surface, or within the secluded corners surrounded by vibrant foliage, you're sure to find an idyllic setting that speaks to your heart and feels right for you as a couple.

For this extraordinary couple, under the radiant sun, we meticulously arranged a surprise box, brimming with anticipation. As she lifted the lid, a whimsical balloon gracefully emerged and he asked for her hand in marriage. It was a moment suspended in time, filled with love and excitement. And to commemorate this joyous occasion, a delightful celebratory picnic awaited them.

A proposal has no limits and can be completely personalised. Set the scene now, the candles are lit, the fairy lights are twinkling, the sun is beginning to set, the musician is playing your favourite playlist, all thats left to do is get down on one knee to pop the big question. Your heart will be filled with love and anticipation, as you ask the question that will shape your future. And as you hear the joyous "yes", the memories of this enchanting place will forever be etched in your hearts.

After the heartfelt proposal, take the time to celebrate your love in the embrace of the Kyoto Gardens. Perhaps share a picnic amidst the tranquil surroundings or enjoy a quiet walk hand-in-hand. If you and your partner want to remember this moment together then why not book a photographer and videographer to have a way of cherishing the marriage proposal forever.
