Surprise Proposal at Battersea Park, London

Surprise Proposal at Battersea Park, London

Beautiful London surprise proposal – wedding photography at the Battersea Park Bandstand, meticulously planned & coordinated by The One Romance.

I’m often asked to photograph surprise proposals in London, however they are mostly last minute enquiries or they fall on a weekend that I am already booked. So in 10 years, of being a wedding photographer, I have never actually managed to do shoot a surprise proposal in London. However, considering that we find ourselves in lockdown & that this damn Covid-19 has all but postponed every wedding that I had booked this summer, I managed to make myself available for this one… & here’s another little thing, I’ve known Sajan, the groom-to-be, since he was in nappies; in fact he’s my kid-brother.

So in 10 years, of being a wedding photographer, I have never actually managed to do shoot a surprise proposal in London. However, considering that we find ourselves in lockdown & that this damn Covid-19 has all but postponed every wedding that I had booked this summer, I managed to make myself available for this one… & here’s another little thing, I’ve known Sajan, the groom-to-be, since he was in nappies; in fact he’s my kid-brother.

Sajan did well to keep this surprise a secret from everybody bar my wife & I. In fact my wife had an important role to play, which was to convince Davina to get all dressed up “for a double date-night dinner”, without raising any suspicion. Although all four of us started from home together, I pretended to drop of my youngest kid-brother, Aryan, to his mates house, promising to be back in time to collect my wife & then meet Sajan & Davina at the “restaurant”. Instead Aryan & I went on ahead to Battersea Park, where we met with Amanda & her team from The One Romance ready to photograph the surprise proposal. Up until the very last moment, Davina was under the impression that we were all going out for a lovely vegan meal… cue the romantic music!

Throughout the week Sajan & I kept reverting back to the weather forecast with our fingers crossed and although the weather during the day was wet, just as Aryan & I arrived at Battersea Park, the rain eased of and showed us a bit of favour. Unfortunately, just after the proposal, Sajan & I had  planned to continue to photoshoot session at Albert Bridge but the the weather had other plans for us and sent torrents of rain to cut our shoot short. Still I feel we captured some awesome moments of surprise and genuine love… and as the groom’s eldest brother I couldn’t be any happier for Sajan & Davina <3
