Surprised woman being proposed to by her boyfriend at New Hall Hotel

Wedding Proposal in the West Midlands

It was a privilege to capture this wedding proposal, especially as this was a craking bit of organisation on Rick’s part. Rick got in touch several months ago saying he’d like to propose to Becky while they were staying at New Hall Hotel. As Rick lives in America, you can imagine the logistics of arranging everything from abroad. Especially when you realise he’d never been to New Hall before, only seeing images on the internet. How is that possible? Exactly how do you decide where and when to propose?

How we agreed on the location, is discussed in my later blog post where I discuss Rick’s effective but simple proposal idea. We decided on the bridge at the back of the venue because of the beautiful backdrop.

But for now, a big “Congratulations!” goes to Rick and Becky! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day.

Before I sort the rest of the images, here’s a quick sneak preview of the happy moment when she said “Yes!”

Having the experience and ideas on wedding proposals is something I’d love to share with you.
