A Marriage Proposal in Tuscany
Mateo knew that Tuscany was the perfect destination for his marriage proposal to Federico. They had been on a romantic holiday to Tuscany before and were coming back this year. Once Mateo booked a stay at the exclusive COMO Castello del Nero Resort in Chianti, and a ticket for the Bocelli concert nearby, he immediately knew this would be the perfect day and the perfect location for his surprise proposal in Tuscany!
The Surprise Proposal
To organise a same sex surprise proposal in a location so far away from home and totally unfamiliar could be daunting. So it’s always a great idea to enlist some help from local professionals that can make your Marriage Proposal a truly unforgettable and stress free experience. So we worked together with the COMO Castello del Nero concierge team and event planner Ilaria from Glam Events in Tuscany to find the perfect plan: on their drive to Castello del Nero, we asked Mateo to follow a scenic alternative route and to stop at a precise location. Here Mateo stopped the car and made his way to the designated surprised proposal spot in a vineyard that we had marked with some flowers, pretending to take some pictures of the landscape before going down on his knee and pop the question!
The marriage proposal was followed by a portrait photoshoot in the Tuscany countryside around the Castello del Nero estate. We walked down the olive grove towards a lake and then up again to an hidden Pic-pic spot. Here Glam Events in Tuscany and Il Fiorista event designer had set a bespoke elegant picnic area with cushions, flowers and delicious food and drinks by the Michelin-starred restaurants of Castello del Nero: what a celebration for a perfect surprise marriage proposal in Tuscany!
The Engagement Shoot
Surprise Marriage proposal are, of course, a surprise. To be able to capture such a truly unique moment with a photograph is nothing short of a gift to yourself, so you can look back and relive all the emotions of that day. The only downside? Maybe your partner wasn’t picture ready, or they weren’t wearing that outfit they wished they were… so if you want to make your same-sex surprise proposal engagement photoshoot even better, you can book a separate engagement shoot for the following day somewhere else in Tuscany!
Photoshoot in Tuscany
Having a separate Engagement Photo Shoot in Tuscany will also give your partner some time to think about what engagement photographs they want (on top of the usual engagement ring shot or more classic couple poses) as well as a chance to explore another beautiful location for your photoshoot in Tuscany. In fact, there are so many iconic locations for photographs from natural beauty spots to typical towns and villages that you will be spoiled for choice. Mateo and Federico chose the beautiful Natural Parco di Canonica for their same sex engagement photoshoot in Tuscany, with beautiful views of the countryside and of the nearby Certaldo Alto town.
