Proposal in an Art Gallery

Way back in 2012, The Proposers had the absolute pleasure of planning Sham's proposal to Orva in an art gallery.

After months of preparation of the art gallery proposal day finally arrived where Sham and Orva were to be engaged, yippie.

With a chosen theme of a gallery of happiness. Orva’s love of Art meant she enjoying visiting galleries and exhibitions regularly, so it wasn't a shock that a gallery was the destination of the day.

The Proposers worked with Sham to create 10 canvases. Each canvas had something on it that Sham knew was important to Orva and made her happy - from penguins to Phantom of the Opera tickets, to New York and cupcakes. The Proposers knew how important it was to make their first ever proposal one to remember.  

It was set the scene at Orleans House Gallery in Richmond. A stunning building within woodland and overlooking the Thames. It was built in 1721 for Queen Caroline and if good enough for a Queen then they knew it was perfect for Orva.

Orva loved art, (she even draws herself!), so they knew they had to incorporate an arty theme into the proposal! What better way to do this than to have canvas' with images that meant something to the couple; their favourite holiday, her favourite things, and memories they have shared together etc.

So, how did they make this proposal idea perfect for Orva and Sham? Firstly, Sham's nickname for Orva is "Cups," so The Proposers decorated the venue with vintage tea cups full of her favourite flowers; roses. Then by setting up each of the canvases on stands around the room, so when the couple arrived Sham led Orva one by one to each of the canvases in the room so that she could see the individual photographs:

For the final canvas they had actually used one of Orva's own designs, which they "borrowed" from her Pinterest page. They wrote "Will you marry me" over the top of the design of a gorgeous painted heart.

Orva was shocked when she saw the painting, and even more so when Sham then got down on one knee and asked her to marry him! She of course said YES!
