Scotland Marriage Proposal // Manon & George

It’s been a crazy-busy few months that have taken us to Italy, France, Morocco, Poland and all around Scotland and the UK and we can’t wait to share a load of new stories soon.  For now we’re going to start with this sweet story from Scotland.

Earlier on in the year I spent an unforgettable day hanging out with two beautiful souls from Australia, Manon and George.

Manon and George planned a month-long European vacation and made a short stop in Scotland to commemorate 7 years of their relationship with some sweet shots in the Scottish highlands. The day kicked off in sunny Edinburgh with a few cuddles in an apartment in the old town before we all jumped in the car to drive out to the Scottish highlands.

Moments before we left the apartment George showed me a ring in a specially crafted box that he’d smuggled over with him on the plane and filled me in on his secret plan to propose to Manon later in the day!

Since the very beginning of their relationship, whenever it was time for a present (Christmas, birthdays, and the like) George would always joke that Manon would get coal. However, as luck would have it, he would always have the most thoughtful gifts waiting for her. As such, coal became a lovely metaphor for his gifts over time. With that in mind, he thought that for this ultimate gift, a piece of coal would be the perfect way to present the ring to her. He had sculpted a ring box to look like a piece of coal and 3D printed it with the help of a prop maker in Sydney!

Documenting such a meaningful moment that two people will remember for the rest of their lives is a rewarding feeling and knowing that they will look back at these photos and be able to feel the same feeling that they experienced on that day is truly special.

After 7 years of evolving as a photographer and as a person, I’ve never felt more grateful to be doing what I’m doing.
