Cindy and James: a special surprise proposal

When James came all the way from Hong Kong to Italy with his girlfriend Cindy, she thought it was just for their long desired couple vacation. She had no idea of what he was planning behind her back.

James wanted to surprise her with an unforgettable wedding proposal and he asked us to help him with it. He was looking for the most romantic spot in Florence and he wanted to have photos and video footage of that moment, to cherish the memory forever. 

Planning something like this is challenging, but not impossible: all you have to do is enjoy your once-in-a-lifetime moment, where everything needs to be perfect… that’s why we take care of every single detail, as we did with James. 

From showing him the exact spot and positioning for the best pictures, to telling him which kind of jacket to wear – where we hid the microphone. We even found a flower vendor on their route because he also wanted to surprise Cindy with twelve red roses! 

Do you long for a video of the event too? No problem, we can arrange that. We’re not only going to make sure that it all works out on the technical side – we’re also going to get emotional with you and to capture all the feelings of that special moment. Passion drives us, and we work our heart out when creating your memories of a lifetime. 

Curious to know how James and Cindy story turned out? She never suspected anything, so the proposal came as a real surprise – is there anything more romantic and emotional than your loved one kneeling with the best view of Florence in the background?

Surprise wedding proposal in Florence: the best spots

The absolute best place to propose in Florence is San Miniato al Monte. Less crowded than the renowned Piazzale Michelangelo, it offers the same astounding view of the city with a more intimate atmosphere. In such a dreamy location, she will say Yes even before you kneel!

Later, the best thing to do is having your proposal photographer follow you on a walk in the center of Florence, where he will shoot some more memorable engagement photos. 

The best locations are surely the historical Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi, then the magical Ponte Vecchio and – why not – the fashion Tornabuoni Street. 

Florence is full of hidden romantic spots where to capture the essence of your love: your proposal photographer will snap the best couple photos of you, so just trust him and enjoy the moment.

Your wedding proposal is something that both of you will remember forever, but you can make it even more unique turning it into an elegant and emotional surprise. Florence will be the best location to host this special moment, and your engagement photos will allow you to relive it over and over again.

Are you ready for the most romantic surprise proposal ever?
