The Wedding Proposal In Singapore – Sam and I have known each other for about 3 years; we applied for a BTO together as well as started our wedding plans.
Proposing to a Girl – To my surprise, Sam desired to propose to me, not for the sake of formality but to show me his sincerity. Knowing that I am a feminist, he offers to plan my proposal with me, this may sound extremely unromantic but being a realist as well not like the idea of a man bending backwards to fulfil my every whim and fancy.
My Engagement Ring – I got to choose my own engagement ring; Sam knew that Forever Mark diamonds are of good quality and suggested that we go to a jewellery store to pick out one that I liked. It also saves us the trouble of resizing the ring and ensured that the design and cut were to my liking.
Our Wedding Proposal Venue – We instantaneously decided the venue should be at a Rabbitto cafe in Bangkok, our visit to the café last year left us with a lasting impression, we totally adore the cute fluffy critters, the rabbits were not aggressive, approachable and very curious. We are both born in the year of the rabbit also gave this venue more significance.
Our Wedding Proposal Photographer – Engaging a photographer was also on our list, we wanted to capture the magical moment when Sam asks for my hand in marriage. The idea was simply to get a reputable photographer overseas is no piece of cake, I searched online a couple of months before our trip to Thailand for a good photographer, the language barrier was one of my main concerns as well.
I came across Natasha I Gillett’s webpage and was very impressed with her portfolio; she is a winner of several prestigious photographer awards. Contacting her was a breeze as she replies to her emails regularly. Booking a session with her has to be done in advance as she is very popular. A deposit was required and the transaction was fast and safe because it was done thru PayPal.
The Wedding Proposal Box – Sam bought me the most adorable ring box, engraved on the log-shaped wooden box was will you marry me, accompanied by 2 porcelain rabbits. They were perfect props for our engagement photoshoot. Sam also contacted the Café in advance to ask for permission to hold our photo shoot there as well as asked for the best time to be at the café when it is not crowded.
The Rabbit Wedding Proposal Photoshoot – The day arrived when Sam proposed, we arrived early at the café where the staff was very accommodating and helpful, they helped us pick the best rabbits for the photo shoot, those they would happily allow us to snuggle and carry them. The rabbits were very curious about Natasha’s DSLR camera and would pop up right next to her to see what she was doing. Natasha was wonderful; she is cheerful, patient and helpful, gently giving us directions on some poses and ideas of good photos, the peter rabbit themed café was simply decorated and small but she had a great eye for the best shots.
Marriage Proposal Partner – Sam isn’t a guy of many words nevertheless he displays his affection by caring for me, He got on one knee and presented me with the ring we might have planned this blissful day together but surprisingly nothing felt rehearsed or fake, we just had a very enjoyable afternoon playing with the rabbits after he declared his love for me.
