An opulent glamping proposal

Once again the summer is incredibly busy and we’ve pitched hundreds of tents at some amazing locations throughout the Yorkshire region. We’ve even just returned from a weekend pitching a bell tent village down in Rutland.
However the big news of the summer came a little closer to home. On June 1st the Glampit team got engaged.
With the help of some amazing friends and contacts in the wedding industry, I pulled off what the Yorkshire Post called an “indecently opulent proposal“.

It all started by identifying a weekend that was free of bookings, which in itself was difficult with the amount that we’ve had this year. I contacted wedding planner Charlotte Miller, from Eden & Eve and asked if she could help me organise a little something at very short notice (2 weeks).

With Charlotte’s support we enlisted a number of great suppliers to help. All of which were invited to see my private board on Pinterest, so they knew what type of theme I was going for. Sarah and her wonderful team at Leafy Couture created stunning florals and provided some amazing props to compliment our Moroccan themed bell tents. Additional props were also supplied by Sam from the unique Lime Lace in Harrogate. Incredible food was provided by Tony from Eat Me, Drink Me and the amazing images were captured by the incredibly talented Holly from Belle & Beau Photography.

It all took place at High Austby Farm which overlooks Ilkley and Addingham and when it came to popping the question, the guys had put everything in the tent and made it look incredible. Christina and I got ourselves sat down and Holly was about to get some pictures. Charlotte stepped out and the photographer started snapping. I just turned round to Chris and said: ‘I’ve got you here under false pretences, explained I loved her and said: ‘Christina Louise Brough, will you marry me?’

Friends and family had been put on standby and started turning up throughout the afternoon, bringing food to cook on fire pits. So ultimately we got an engagement and engagement party in one.

Matt and the guys at Lights 4 Fun provided us with beautiful festoon lighting to string across the trees which set the whole thing off once the sun started dip behind the hills.

The always superb Rock My Wedding also wrote a piece on the whole thing, which was an honour to be featured in.

Once again a massive thank you to all involved…especially Christina for saying “Yes”.

And they say romance is dead.
