As the summer approach upon us, why not take the advantage of the beautiful sunshine and hot weather! We know of the most perfect spot for you to pop that all-important question...

Nestled in a corner of Holland Park, Kyoto Gardens is a beautiful Japanese inspired garden, with stunning flowing waterfalls and ponds filled with carp, what an idyllic proposal spot!

Ash thought so too, which is why he asked us to help plan a romantic proposal for his girlfriend, Sarah, in the breath-taking garden. As Ash walked Sarah for a romantic stroll in the park, to her surprise she noticed a beautifully wrapped box on the bridge with her name written on it. When she opened the box a balloon saying, "Marry Me?" floated out!

As the balloon floated out, Ash dropped down on one knee to say the 3 words that had appeared on the balloon. 

And of course she gave Ash the answer he was looking for, 'YES'!  

Congratulations to the happy couple!  

What do you need to know about proposing in Kyoto Gardens

We've planned plenty of proposals in Kyoto Gardens, and know exactly how to do it right. But here's a few things you should think about before yourself Kyoto Gardens proposal.

1) It can get very busy. With tourists flocking to see the gardens and most of them going to the bridge with the waterfall in the background (the prime location for proposals), it can get very busy here at peak times, especially if it's the waterfall you're looking for.

2) A planner is important here. Proposing in Kyoto Gardens may seem simple, but it's one of the locations where we really recommend doing it right. If you do it at a peak time you'll only get a minute or two to propose with so many people waiting to visit the bridge. We can help you find the perfect time and place for your proposal.

3) It's beautiful when done right. We love a proposal in Kyoto Gardens as the backdrop can be so romantic. Top this off with a romantic picnic or dinner after to celebrate the yes!
