How to Plan a Perfect Summery Proposal in Sydney

Jan 5, 2017 | Uncategorized

Summer is an ideal time to propose in Australia. Not only do balmy nights make for romantic sunsets and dates, but families often come home for the festive season so you can all celebrate together. We’ve rounded up the perfect summery proposal ideas for you to consider. 

A beach engagement

Sydney is spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful beaches. Milk Beach, Gordon’s Bay and Collins Flat Beach are all wonderful choices for secluded spots where you might have the beach to yourselves. Sunset is a wonderful time to propose if you’re having photos taken. One cute option is to plant your photographer in the setting, then casually ask them to take a picture of you both – then bend one knee for the big surprise. Just be sure to keep your precious engagement ring secure in your pocket, so you don’t need to invest in a metal detector too!

A picnic proposal

A picnic provides the ultimate opportunity to pop the question. You’re both relaxed, you’re in a gorgeous environment and you already have a beautiful backdrop for your announcement photos. Wendy’s Secret Garden in Lavender Bay and McKell Park at Darling Point are both stunning spots with spectacular views over the water. It’s a good idea to scout out a location beforehand to find a quiet spot, and pack some of your partner’s favourite food and vintage champagne. 

For something different 

Summer in Sydney is a magic time and it offers the chance to do something a little different for your proposal. What could be more romantic than a hot air balloon ride at sunrise? How about a wooden boat in the middle of a lake? Or, if you really want to maximise the adrenaline on the day, you could propose on a hike in one of the national parks around Sydney, or drop out of a plane and propose the second you both touch down on the ground. We guarantee you’ll both be floating for the next few days as you share the news with family and friends.
