If you are eager to propose to your loved one and are looking for an especially unique and romantic way to pop the question, what could be better than doing it while aboard a hot air balloon ride from Bristol, Bath or South Wales? The love of your life will be the envy of all his/her friends and will be telling the story of how you proposed to him/her whilst floating through the clouds in a hot air balloon for years to come!

It can take patience to propose in a hot air balloon, as you are reliant on the weather on the day, so it is also a good idea to have a back up proposal plan in place if the weather doesn’t turn out to be on your side and you don’t want to wait to pop the question.

Jo and Clive’s proposal………

Clive proposed to Jo whilst flying a hot air balloon, 8,000 feet above the beautiful Georgian city of Bath Spa on the day of the Bath Balloon Fiesta. Clive and Jo were married in 1995 at a small village church in Easter Compton in Bristol. As Jo and Clive emerged from the church, Clive was surprised and excited to discover that Jo had organised a surprise helicopter flight to take them to their wedding reception at the magical Thornbury Castle, near Bristol. After having enjoyed a wonderful wedding reception with family and friends Clive guided Jo from the Castle and to her carriage – a hot air balloon! Jo was delighted and Clive had to admit that Jo’s walking boots looked fantastic along with her wedding dress! As husband and wife were waved off by family and friends, Jo dropped her bouquet into the crowd just as they flew over the castle walls. The whole day made for stunning pictures and the hot air balloon flight proved to be a wonderful ending to a magnificent day!
