Surprise Wedding Photography Proposal on Anglesey


A few months ago I got an email from Tom. He was going to propose to his girlfriend at the top of Mt Snowdon and wanted me to document their trip up the mountain and Naomi’s reaction – as a surprise.

I was super excited for 3 reasons. Number 1, I get to photograph the moment someone actually proposes – that’s super exciting.

Number 2, I haven’t been up Snowdon since I was a kid and keep meaning to find the time.

And number 3, at the time we were having unseasonably warm weather, if it would just stay like that, I knew I’d get some truly epic photos.

Anyway, fast forward to the day before the secret proposal and of course, it’s not just rain, it’s snow and persistent sub-zero temperatures on Snowdon’s summit.

So, after one or two sly messages we agreed on the new location – Llanddwyn Island, Anglesey. Tom’s plan was simple, “we’ll just walk until I pick a moment I guess!”. My job was to stalk them, without drawing too much attention to myself and be there at the crucial moment.

Sounds easy enough, but when it’s early March, chucking it down with rain and blowing a hoolie (as my Aunty Judi would say) Llanddwyn Island isn’t very busy. But I think I just about go away with it 😬

I’d like to say a massive congratulations and thank you to Tom, it was an absolute honour to follow you through the woods in the rain. I had a smile on my soaking wet face all the way home! 😍
