Gondola proposal

Experience the quintessential Venetian moment by proposing during a gondola tour.

This is probably the most popular and definitely one of my favourites engagement locations in Venice!

Why they will love it?

  • To begin with nothing tells more “Its Venice” than a photo in a gondola
  • Additionally Gondola ride gives you a new perspective on the city
  • Ask her to marry you on a little intimate canal, away from crowds if more privacy is your goal
  • You can opt for a personalised banner to be hung from the bridge

Details to consider:

  • For my experience the best way to capturing proposal in gondola is to have a photographer with you on board.
    • however its is possible to capturing the moment in a paparazzi way from the bridge! Check the example!
  • Must be remembered
    • how you position yourself on gondola is also important:
    • when proposing don’t cover their reaction and don’t turn your back to photographer,
    • instead turn on a side so we have both of your profiles in the photo.
  • If you don’t want to have a gondolier on the background
    • then you can both seat on the nose of the gondola
  • In addition – Bring or order from me a bootle of Champaign to open in gondola
  • Altogether – enjoy the ride!
