London Wedding Proposal

Capturing a Secret London Wedding Proposal


So you’re planning your wedding proposal and looking into the idea of hiring a wedding proposal photographer? Well first off, congratulations! You’re about to take a big step into a new chapter of your life and we’d love to be there to document it. We were so excited when Razvan contacted us about his plans to propose to Mary Jo, while they were on vacation in London. The final wedding proposal film and photos we produced made such an impact when they were able to share it with their family and it was awesome to be part of it.


For us, it was the first time we’d been asked to create a wedding proposal film. But we were super confident that we’d be able to create something special. We’ve created countless cinematic wedding films and knew once we were with Razvan and Mary Jo, the story would just fall into place. We managed to help these guys scout out an awesome location in London and after some undercover planning, we were set to go!

We went ahead and interviewed the couple soon after the proposal which made for a really great way to bring the visuals to life. Check out the film below and if you’re considering having your wedding proposal documented, get in contact with us.


Proposing is such a nerve-racking, but exciting and emotional time for couples. But what better place to become engaged than when on vacation in London? Initially, Razvan wasn’t too sure about the best location for his proposal but after we sent over a few options and carefully planned an idea, it was pretty clear that Tower Bridge, as his backdrop, was the one. Let’s be honest, you can’t really get more London than that.

We had such a blast creating this wedding proposal film for Razvan and Mary Jo. WeddingProposal’s are full of surprises but everything worked out great for these guys! We were able to capture a great set of engagement photos along with a super romantic and personal wedding proposal film which will be a keepsake for these guys for years to come.


Everyone remembers the moment their significant other pops the question. After all, it’s a once in a lifetime event. But what about the exact details? Like your expressions, or clothes you were wearing or the time of day even. Not to mention all the emotions that are felt after the question has been asked.

All of this is precisely what Razvan wanted to capture when he proposed to Mary Jo, while they were on a Christmas vacation from the USA. There are a few things to consider when planning a proposal like location, time of day, any restrictions when it comes to logistics. And it’s really important to think about whether your partner wants something more personal with just the two of you? Or if the attention from on-lookers will be welcomed. But if you’re here and looking to hire a couples photographer and videographer to capture your wedding proposal, then I imagine your partner isn’t too camera shy, and documenting the BIG moment will be a huge success.

London Sunset Pre-Wedding Shoot

Natalie & Sam’s Sunset Pre-Wedding Shoot in London

Living in the UK, you have to get used to how erratic the weather can be. It’s kinda our thing. Maybe even our USP? Probably not, but one thing I must say is that when the weather is good in the UK, it really is good. When Natalie and Sam contacted me from their home in San Francisco late last year to inform me that they’d be heading over to the UK to celebrate their wedding day at Ramster Hall in Guildford, I couldn’t wait to meet them!

Himani & Phil’s Engagement  Shoot at Kensington Park Gardens in London


With World Cup Fever in the Air. Scorching temperatures; and less than a month until their Garden marquee wedding, I met up with Himani & Phil for their Engagement Shoot in Kensington Palace Gardens.  Despite it being an England game. Despite getting stuck in terrible traffic, the couple eventually made it to the stunning Kensington Palace.  For me, that showed true dedication to their wedding photographer and capturing some great engagement images.  The temperature and slightly stressful journey didn’t seem to phase Himani & Phil however.  After a few apologies, we strolled through the elegant grounds of the Kensington Palace Gardens getting some pre-wedding shoot images.

Emine & Ariel’s Pre Wedding Shoot at Rochester Castle


Some days I forget how lucky I am to have some of the best locations in Kent and Essex right on my doorstep. Rochester Castle is literally 15 miles away from my home and I’ve never even been there before. What a mistake that was, because quite frankly it is a beaut! (as they say here in Essex).

Engagement Photography at Bedfords Park

Janene and Steve’s Engagement Photography at Bedfords Park in Essex


One of my favourite parts of being a wedding photographer in Essex is capturing some amazing smiles during a pre-wedding couples shoot. Sometimes I’ll get a couple that feels a tad nervous about being photographed and take a little bit of time to warm to the idea of being photographed before sharing those natural smiles. And sometimes I get those couples like Janene and Steve that are all smiles and laughter from the get-go. It’s brilliant!

Gilly and Tony’s Couples Shoot at Virginia Water in Surrey


I’ll never forget the message that came through to me when Tony asked if I was available to document his wedding. It was something on the lines of “Hi Tarik, Gilly and I are getting married in the beautiful Chateau De Lisse near Bordeaux and wondered if you’d consider coming over to photograph…no pressure and it’s fine if it’s not your thing”. Well. I’ve never responded to a text so quickly in my life with “YESSSSSSSSSSSS”. Everything about this wedding just sounded amazing. In preparation for Gilly and Tony’s destination wedding in France, we headed over to Virginia Water in Surrey for our pre-wedding shoot.
