Most Unusual Proposals
Deciding where to pop the question is a huge deal. Why? Well whilst the most important part of the proposal is considered to be receiving a ‘yes’ from your potential fiancée, the actual proposal itself will be told countless times to friends, family and future children and grandchildren. This precious moment to be remembered forever and the exciting details will be shared by many; the place of a proposal is extremely significant!
When Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian…
In the celebrity world, nothing is done by half measures. Hip-hop artist Kanye West asked for reality star Kim Kardashian’s hand in marriage at San Francisco’s AT&T Park. The arena, home to the Giants, would usually cost a whopping $200,000 to hire out but West was given complimentary use of the grounds to host the extravagant marriage proposal.
West got down on one knee in front of friends whilst a spectacular 50-piece orchestra performed an arrangement of Lana Del Ray’s Young and Beautiful followed by Keri Hilson’s Knock You Down, a track that features a guest verse by West. The event also included fireworks and a proposal on the screen which read “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”
Could Kim say no to all of that as well as a platinum diamond ring? Not in a million years. The flawless 15-carat diamond engagement ring, designed by Lorraine Schwartz, was placed on Kim’s ring finger on her 33rd birthday – a birthday she’ll never forget!
The AT&T Park event was definitely not your typical proposal; this engagement story will go down in history.
Penguin Enclosure Proposal
Folly Farm saw their first ever marriage proposal just recently when Alun Davies popped the question to girlfriend Jamie-Lee Jones during a Zoo Keeper Experience.
Jamie-Lee is obsessed with penguins. From cute toys to figurines, the penguin-lover had it all but she had never actually met a penguin; Alun had decided to take her to Folly Farm and had booked them in for a Zoo Keeper Experience so she could have hands-on fun with her favourite animals. Little did Jamie-Lee know that Alun had planned a surprise proposal and not long after she had finished feeding Penguins, Alun got down on one knee! Shocked Jamie-Lee accepted in front of a dozen of delighted visitors who gave a congratulatory round of applause.
The proposal was not only extremely special for the couple but for the largely popular tourist attraction too! Popping the question in front of a herd of penguins is most definitely an unusual proposal.
