Pentillie Tips on Planning the Perfect Proposal!

There are a 1,001 unique ways to propose but should it be a personal affair or in front of crowds?

‘Gareth had organised about 50 of our best friends to gather for a ‘Christmas drink’. I conveniently got my name pulled out the hat for a blind folded game of ‘guess the object’, after guessing the children’s toy hammer I was baffled by a small box and a man’s head. After feeling around and not guessing it was my beau, the blindfold was ripped off and low and behold it was Gareth on one knee holding the ring box, feeling overwhelmed and surprised I said YES, and the ‘gathering’ turned into our engagement party’.  Elaine 2013

We asked our team what their perfect proposal would be, here are our top 4:

  • Since we have been together we have always enjoyed watching the sunset and strolls along a tiny pebble beach which we discovered a few years ago making it the perfect spot. Once I had said ‘Yes’, we’d go for a lovely meal for 2 in our favourite restaurant.
  • We came across a quaint and romantic Taverna in the Greek village of Afitos, as we have ate and drank there a few times it would be the perfect place for him to pop the question.
  • A lovely walk on a sunny day along the River with a bottle of champagne at the ready!
  • The Cheesewring on Bodmin Moor is always a special place for us and somewhere we have visited many times together, I can imagine him popping the question at the top overlooking the gorgeous Cornish countryside… a kind of Wuthering Heights fairytale.

Some couples would prefer to share an intimate moment with just the both of you, while others would love a proposal in front of their nearest and dearest. If you are considering a proposal think about what your partner likes; are they shy and enjoy personal time with you, or are they lively, social and enjoy dates in big groups? If she (or he!) would prefer to spend the evening in, cuddled up on the sofa then a crowd proposal may be a no no.

YouTube is being filled with proposals in weird and wonderful ways and with the popularity of ‘Proposal Planners’ you could hand over the responsibility to the experts.  You tell them about your partner and what their likes and dislikes are, and they come up with a perfect proposal. The only thing they cannot guarantee is the ‘Yes’! This might be a cheat’s way out…

Pentillie Castle could be the perfect venue to propose to your loved one. We can organise a bespoke proposal package – get down on one knee in our Romantic Bathing Hut. Picture a candlelight dinner with the fire roaring overlooking the River Tamar, or treat your beloved in our luxury award winning B&B accommodation.

However you plan on asking your beau for their hand in marriage make sure you treasure the moment. Whether that be in memory or on video, the moment is there forever and one to keep close to your heart.
