Ridwan & Rukoya’s proposal

On the 30th December 2013 Ridwan and Rukoya got engaged! Wow what stunning V&A Waterfront marriage proposal !!!

We had lots of fun planning this proposal as he wanted it in public! You either love or hate the thought of this but Ridwan knew it would be what she wanted!

Ridwan brief to us was, he wanted to propose on a bridge! He loved the thought of water, nature and views so what better place to do it than at the V&A Waterfront.

We arranged the videographer and photographer to capture the whole proposal on film. This just added that “fun” factor that is needed when proposing in public.

The location was chosen, we were to hide at the canals near the One & Only Hotel. They arrived at the Waterfront, looking very smart indeed. They took a gentle stroll towards the canals. Once Ridwan reached the bridge and spot where he was happy, he said those magic words. There was ONE more trick up his sleeve. He had brought a “fake” diamond ring that he first pulled out when asking Rukoya to marry him. As he was showing it to her, he dropped it into the canal (this was all on purpose) but the Rukoya and the crown watching got such a shock! Its was a brief moment of panic for all! A few minutes after this he produced the “real” diamond ring which she gladly accepted and said YES! The crowds started cheering and clapping at this happy event! (people were also taking pictures themselves).

To celebrate they enjoyed a romantic sunset cruise followed by dinner at the Waterfront!

We wish them both the best of luck and happiness for their future together.
