I am still swooning over this intimate cliff top coastal romantic marriage proposal in Cornwall that I customed designed over the Easter spring holiday weekend.  The easter bunny brought lots of love in the air as I brought my London client Anurag to this stunning destination I had proposed of a secluded spot of the South East Cornwall coastline.

With a tight time frame I was able to coordinate a personal one-off romantic marriage proposal setup in the picturesque west country.

As you can see it was touch and go with the weather, but rain held off!

The details

Anurag contacted Amanda-Louise Knight Weddings, Proposals and Events and worked with Amanda-Louise as the West Country’s Expert Independent Marriage Proposal Planner to plan a special moment so that he could surprise his girlfriend Amandeep and ask her a very important question.

He already knew he wanted to be in Cornwall as they were going to be on holiday together during a spring week in April, he wanted a stunning scenery, but he wasn’t sure where or how to transform a space into a romantic paradise.   He is a professional working full time; he didn’t have the time to plan his perfect proposal himself. That’s where my specialism kicked in, as I presented him with multiple concepts, taking the stress off his shoulders.


With his aim to keep it intimate with no Marry Me Signs or fireworks, just exquisite making the most of the natural scenery.   He loved the location I found with views over Talland Bay, how I can transform an area using my romantic décor to create a romantic vibe, including my suggestions what we would do should it rain given the temperament of the UK’s spring weather!

The Proposal Location

London based Anurag wanted to pop the question to Amandeep with a stunning coastal backdrop. I did my research and provided a variety of locations before he knew this chocolate-boxed destination was just perfect to pledge his love to his soulmate.

The Proposal Day

I arrived at the hotel and met Victoria the experienced professional photographer I had booked to capture the moment and we walked the grounds agreeing the perfect spot to coordinate the décor ensuring some breath-taking photos would be taken.   Having worked with Victoria on other occasions, I knew we would work in harmony to capture the right photos my client wanted.

With no rain, my client’s hope of an outside proposal was coming into fruition! - I had plan B as backup should it rain though!

Anurag arrived at the hotel with his girlfriend oblivious I was setting up the event in the hotel’s lawned areas as they checked into their superior sea view room, I had arranged for them.  

I met the couple in reception during the afternoon posing as a member of the hotel’s management team to welcome them and gave them a guided tour of the grounds keeping up the surprise up until the very moment….

The Big Proposal Moment

Amandeep couldn’t believe what was happening as we walked towards the lawns. Anurag proudly walked his girlfriend down the aisle, when he got to the end to the area adorned with petals, he guided her into the spot where he dropped to one knee, and presented the ring, and Amandeep said yes!
