Proposals & Weddings
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 champagne hot air balloon ride from Bristol, Bath or South Wales? Your fiancé will be the envy of all his/her friends and will be telling the story of how you proposed to his/her whilst floating through the clouds in a hot air balloon for years to come!

You can choose to fly in one of our exclusive balloons for a more intimate experience, if you excuse your pilot! We can sometimes make special arrangements to launch from your hotel, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss this with you.

Already popped the question?.. take a look at our Wedding packages and see how we can make your day all the more special!

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!

Why not make your proposal extra special by proposing in an exclusive hot air balloon? You can either fly in your very own balloon (with your very own pilot) making the occasion as intimate as possible or in one of our larger hot air balloons and share your special day with other passengers. The whole ballooning experience can be tailored to meet your individual needs, from meeting you at your hotel or our recommended launch site to sharing champagne at the end of the flight. For those of you who aren’t happy to stop there we can even arrange to take you and your party to a fabulous hotel for a champagne breakfast where you can discuss your magical morning flight or an evening meal after your sunset flight.
