An Incredibly Creative Proposal, Followed By A Traditional Yet Modern Wedding


George and Jessie met on Jessie’s 20th birthday in 2014. After insisting on buying her a drink, the couple exchanged numbers, and three years later, George popped the question in a unique way!

“It was my birthday … George told me he had booked skydiving for us and I had told him there was no point in booking as I had already been skydiving and I knew how terribly scared of heights he was.” George insisted anyway, knowing that he wanted his surprise proposal to blow Jessie away… literally!

“We hopped on the helicopter and up and away we went. George was seated first and I was seated last. I wasn’t sure why they had split us up or why he was jumping first – he was petrified!” After jumping out of the helicopter, Jessie’s instructor began to ask her some very odd questions.

“The instructor asked me how my eyesight was, I replied ‘pretty good, why?’ but he ignored me. We started to prepare for landing and he asked me again, ‘how’s your eyesight?’, I said ‘still good, why?’ and he asked me to read the big, blue sign on the ground.” The sign read “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”

“The next thing I knew I was on the ground, dizzy yet shocked because George was on one knee, asking me to marry him. There were so many emotions running through my body – I had just jumped out of a plane, I was confused! At that very moment, I was happy about two things – the love of my life had just asked me to marry him and my nails were painted.”

Jessie and George’s wedding followed an elegant theme of soft pink tones and romantic elements. The show-stopping reception that followed was incredible to say the least, with a purple-lit venue that perfectly combined the traditional and the modern.
