A Picture-Perfect Proposal

Every proposal and couple is special and unique, and we at Gerard McCabe take the time to celebrate each and every story. "How did they propose?" is one of the most asked questions of newly engaged couples, right after 'can I see your ring?'. So whether you're after some inspiration for your own proposal or just a touch of romance, you can be sure to find it here.

How to Find the Perfect Engagement Ring

Below is the story of Sam and Lauren, and their picture-perfect cliff-top proposal. Sam shares with us how he guided the love of his life to the biggest surprise of her life.


Sam & Lauren Proposal - 2.jpg

Sam proposes to Lauren at the Port Willunga lookout.


"We had both been working during the day, so I had set up clues in Lauren's car and around the house that eventually led to directions to the Port Willunga lookout. I had driven straight from work and set up a little picnic over the hills in a secluded spot that overlooked the cliffs. When she arrived, I met her at the car park and led her over the hills. Lauren had recently landed a new job, so she still thought we were celebrating that at the time. I had set up a camera on self-timer and said we should pose for a picture before the sun went down. We took the first photo and I checked it, before saying we needed to do it again. But instead of posing for the photo, I got down on one knee and popped the big question! She said yes and loved the ring I'd chosen from Gerard McCabe. The proposal shot was also amazing, so the proposal couldn't have gone better!

The rest of the night was spent at our picnic dinner, and calling family and friends to share the news. Lauren didn't sleep for the next three days, but I slept very well because I didn't have to hide the ring anymore. Thanks again for all your help and support, we couldn't appreciate it anymore."
