Claire & Carl’s Sunflower Filled Woodland Proposal

by | Bride, Engagements,


Claire & Carl

Ever had a photoshoot that completely took you by surprise? What about one with sunflowers, a forest and a beautiful yellow diamond ring? Let me share, I’m setting the scene for an absolutely gorgeous proposal today, the story of Claire & Carl who met seven years ago while at university. What started out as a kick off to Carl’s birthday weekend, with a couple of photos, turned into a handmade (by Carl himself!) arbour, decorated with bright yellow sunflowers and the most blissful beginning to a magical weekend. We’re beyond thankful Emma Nayler was there so we can share all the stunning photos with you!

On what she loves about her future husband, Claire shares “I love the incredible amount of respect he has for everyone he meets. He is the most genuine person I’ve ever met and would do anything for anyone.
We’ve built our lives around our love of family, friends, food and trying to add a bit of fun and silliness into every day. (We’re planning for our wedding day to reflect those four important F’s too!)”

The magic moment took place in front of a sunflower covered. arbour, built by Carl, the groom to be popping the question with a yellow diamond ring created by The Diamond Jewellery Studio

On what he loves about Claire, Carl tells “I love her family values, her intelligence and her free-spirited fun nature.”

And of course, the couple’s favourite people were there to help them celebrate!
