James and Bex – Surprise Proposal at Prior Park

James and Bex Engagement

Earlier this month, we were extremely privileged to see photographs capturing the moment when one of our clients proposed to his girlfriend. The location chosen was an inspiring setting – the Palladian Bridge, located within the grounds of the National Trust’s Prior Park in Bath.

Prior Park is a beautiful and intimate 18th-century landscaped garden with one of only four Palladian bridges of this design in the World. The gardens were created in the 18th century by local entrepreneur Ralph Allen, with advice from ‘Capability’ Brown and were frequently visited by the poet Alexander Pope. The garden is set in a sweeping valley where visitors can enjoy magnificent views across to the city of Bath.

James made special arrangements for the Park to be opened 30 minutes early, before his surprise proposal during a romantic morning walk across the Palladian Bridge. 

The proposal was caught on camera by professional photographer Simon Biffen who secretly captured the event from the start of the walk, through to the proposal itself.

After their beautiful scenic walk along the 18th Century Palladian Bridge, James proposed on bended knee in what could only be described as a perfect moment. Following the initial shock, and some tears, the answer was “yes”.

We were delighted to see the photographs of their very special morning. We wish James and Bex all our very best wishes and congratulations, along with thanks for sharing the occasion with us.

We hope you enjoyed looking at the photographs of their special day. Our thanks to James and Bex, and to Simon who took some amazing photographs.
