Ryan’s Surprise Proposal to Laura-Jane at Dunseverick Castle

14 March 2023 - Proposals

I always get so excited when people get in touch about proposing to their other half, and it was no different when Ryan got in touch about proposing to his girlfriend Laura-Jane. We flirted with a couple of different locations to do the proposal (Fair Head, Murlough Bay and Giant’s Causeway were a few of those places) but we eventually settled on Dunseverick Castle. 

In my opinion, Dunseverick is one of the nicest places along the Causeway Coast as it’s a bit of a hidden gem. The ruins of the Castle provide a beautiful backdrop for proposal, engagement and wedding photographs!

The challenge with proposal shoots is making sure we’re both in the right place at the right time. To ensure that we couldn’t miss each other, we sent each other descriptions of what we were wearing and driving so we could be on the lookout!

Ryan and I were in constant communication in the run-up to the day of his proposal – one of our main concerns was the weather. We had a few backup plans in case it was very wet, but thankfully it was dry. You never know what you’re going to get in Ireland, especially in winter!

We both arrived at Dunseverick just before the sun was going down. I let Ryan and Laura-Jane head onto the Castle while I followed at a distance. I got into position and waited for Ryan to get down on one knee. The surprise reactions when your other half asks you to marry them is one of my favourite things about proposal shoots. 

I rushed down to congratulate them both! We enjoyed the last of the winter sunshine while we took some photos around Dunseverick – what a brilliant way to capture this special time forever! 

Are you planning to proposal to your other half? I’d love to hear more about your plans so I can capture this special time for you both!
