Surprise Marriage Proposal at Somerset House

This proposal includes more than one surprise … make sure to read to the end to find out why!

Happy Valentine’s Day. There are so many romantic locations around London to choose from! Today being Valentine’s Day we wanted to share one of our favourite London proposals.  As Wouter and Jannieta were visiting London for Christmas from The Netherlands, we decided on Somerset House for his proposal; a quintessentially British location with ice skating, Christmas lights AND a Christmas Tree. It was the perfect place!

As the sun began to set, the couple arrived at Somerset House just as all the lights were becoming brighter and twinkling against the night sky. The place looked like a Winter Wonderland with the historic building lit up and an enormous Christmas Tree taking centre-stage at the entrance. Our videographer was there from the start and secretly began to film the couple as soon as they arrived.

They strolled around watching the ice-skaters when Wouter suggested sitting down so that they could take in the atmosphere. As they approached a table, our Proposal Planner asked the couple if they had looked under the Christmas Tree as she believed there was a present with Jannieta’s name on it!

An enormous beautifully-wrapped box was sitting under the tree and as Jannieta opened it, a huge bubblegum balloon filled with red hearts flew out with the question ‘Will you marry me?’ written on it! At the same time Wouter got down on one knee and Jannieta said yes!

But the surprises weren’t over yet: the couple’s families had been watching everything from the Skate Lounge! The eight of them had all flown over from The Netherlands to watch the proposal and celebrate with the newly-engaged couple afterwards.

Once Wouter had proposed, the family came out and surprised Jannieta before congratulating the couple. We thought this was such a thoughtful way of keeping the proposal intimate yet incorporating their closest family.

The couple had a photoshoot with the videographer before heading to Covent Garden for a celebratory dinner!

Facebook review.

The One Romance is in one word: AMAZING!
The whole proposal planning started already 6 months ago. Amanda did an amazing job with great ideas and thinking of the setup of the proposal. Very fast contact by email and nothing was too much. A week before the proposal I got a complete plan from Amanda with all the details.
The proposal itself was very beautiful and emotional moment for both my fiancé and our families.
In particular Jannieta & I want to say thank you to Amanda, Andy (for the filming and video) and Ambika!
Thanks a lot for the whole proposal planning. You guys are the best of romance!

With love,
Wouter & Jannieta
