2022 has been a really busy year for wedding proposals again. There’s been lots of epic, exciting locations – something we offer in abundance in Cornwall.

Here in Cornwall, for 2022 the majority of couples chose Cornwall beach locations for their proposal. Our celebrated Cornish coastline is a feast of every type of stunning beach setting you can think of.

From the majestic tranquillity of Kynance Cove with its towering rock stacks and tranquil bays to the typical gardens of Trebah Gardens and the vistas at Land’s End, if you want to propose in a dramatic setting – it doesn’t get better than this.

For coastline that’s more sedate, St Ives, Newquay and St Austell are as popular as ever. Top Cornwall locations, serving up golden sands and froth-topped sea, these are some of the most romantic places to propose in the UK.

Beyond the beach, top historic Cornwall locations, including Tintagel Castle, the Minack Theatre, the Eden Project and St Michael’s Mount, remain spectacular settings with the wow factor you want for a proposal.

I’ve popped a bit of information about some of these locations below. Full details for all of them can be found in the blog.

As a dedicated Cornwall proposal photographer, I’ve witnessed firsthand the overwhelming emotion and sheer beauty of these cherished moments. Whether it’s the sparkle in a soon-to-be-fiancée’s eye or the sunset casting a golden hue on a newly engaged couple, capturing these memories is truly a privilege.

Finally, I’d really like to thank you all – all the couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with in 2022. It has been amazing to be asked to deliver your wedding proposal photography. It’s such an honour to be asked and every request is special.

I will never take an invitation to photograph a wedding or proposal for granted. I cherish every single one of them. It’s an absolute joy to capture the magic of such a special moment for you.

Thanks again to all my couples for allowing me to be part of such a memorable occasion.

I look forward to shooting more wedding proposals in 2023 and hope to see a few of the couples while photographing their wedding.

Me….. doing wedding proposal videography?

If you would like your wedding proposal videoed this is an extra I can add to my package, it’s really powerful here the words and emotion that you miss from photographs. The ones I’ve videoed I’m unable to share as the words exchanged were really personal to the couple, and they would to keep them just for themselves, which I totally understand. Here is a link to a Chinese proposal in Newquay that I captured, and a slideshow beneath from a selection of photographs from a wedding proposal at Watergate bay. :-)

What can we say about Paul! Fantastic, energetic, friendly. Words cannot describe how easy it was planning our proposal. Normally a stressful time for most, Paul helped plan our day to a T.

The photos Paul took were fantastic!

Would definitely recommend to everyone. ☺️
