Prior Park engagement portrait session

In the summer I had the pleasure of photographing a surprise engagement on the beautiful Palladian Bridge in Bath. Shehan had contacted me a few weeks in advance to share his plans of proposing to his girlfriend on a day trip to Bath. They were lucky to have a beautiful sunny summer’s day.

I got to Prior Park well before them to set up camp not far from the bridge, with my cameras ready and hidden under my rucksack. Once Shehan and Kumari finished their picnic, they started wandering towards the bridge and it all got very exciting. After a short while (of probably gathering his courage) Shehan fell down on one knee and held up his ring. They were too far away for me to hear them but not too far to catch them with my zoom lens. She said yes and there were hugs, kisses and tears.

Then he turned around and pointed at me, which added to Kumari’s surprise. After a moment of calming down, we went for a walk together through the park and took some portraits of the newly engaged couple. I have to say I have a lot of respect for Shehan to propose in front of my camera as I have no doubt this must have been an immense act of courage. But now they have the moment captured in pictures forever!
