It’s been a crazy-busy few months that have taken us to Italy, France, Morocco, Poland and all around Scotland. We can’t wait to share a load of new stories soon. For now we’re going to start with this sweet Scotland marriage proposal story of Manon and George at Glencoe!
This year I spent an unforgettable day with two beautiful souls from Australia, Manon and George.
Manon and George planned a month-long European vacation and made a stop in Scotland to commemorate 7 years of togetherness with some photos in the Scottish highlands. The day started in Edinburgh with a few cuddles in their apartment before we left for the 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. He filled me in on his secret plan to propose to Manon later in the day!
A Marriage Proposal I’ll Never Forget
Since the very beginning of their relationship, whenever it was time for a present (Christmas, birthdays) 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!
The moment George presented the ring to Manon was one that I can never forget as a Scotland marriage proposal photographer. Scroll down to see it for yourself.
Documenting the Scotland marriage proposal that two people will remember forever is a rewarding feeling. Knowing that they will look back at these photos and 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.
