Guillaumes beautiful watergate bay proposal
Guillaume had organised a last minute trip to Newquay with Margaux, staying at the Fistral Beach Hotel and Spa on Pentire. He was looking for somewhere nearby for the ideal location to propose. Although Fistral would have been a great choice, we decided on a Watergate Bay proposal as it would be quieter at the north side. It also had The Beach Hut perfectly located overlooking the beach for a romantic meal beforehand.
We conversed a number of times as we had to keep tweaking the plans to keep up with the ever-changing weather. With a dry window and the potential for a sunset it was settled for 7.30pm on Saturday 1st of July.
Guillaumme confessed he didn’t take good pictures and as a couple it’s not something they had done before. Challenge excepted!
Guillaume sent me a discreet text as they were about to leave the restaurant, giving me the signal that they were approaching our pre-arranged spot. I hid in plain site and pretended to focus my camera on some evening surfers.
I watched as Guillaume asked Margaux to turn around so he could take a photo with his phone of her looking out at the Atlantic. Little did she know that this seemingly ordinary moment was about to be transformed into something extraordinary. In one swift motion, Guillaume dropped to one knee and revealed an exquisite ring, his heart brimming with anticipation. I continued to capture the moment, my own emotions welling up as Margaux, in a state of disbelief, accepted his proposal.
A perfect day for Guillaume's Watergate Bay proposal
Following this magical moment, I appeared and introduced myself to the couple. We had a long chat and walked up to one of my favourite spots for a mini shoot.
Remember how I said they weren’t comfortable having their photograph taken? Well they were amazing! Their undeniable chemistry and connection took over, making the experience truly enjoyable.
As the sun began its descent, casting a warm glow over the bay, we continued to chat and brainstorm new photo ideas. The genuine affection shared between Margaux and Guillaume was infectious and the session was more like taking photographs of some friends.
