The Most Extra Marriage Proposals of 2017

Proposing via tattoo is a whole new level of commitment.

1 This woman, who unknowingly wore her engagement ring for over a year inside a wooden necklace that her boyfriend made for her on their one-year anniversary.

2 This man, who technically spent three years proposing to his girlfriend by spelling out ‘Will You Marry Me?’ with the first letter of every love letter he wrote her.


3 This guy, who surprised his girlfriend with a real (!) tattoo of his big question (and then had her tattoo her answer).

9 This dad, who re-proposed to his wife as she recovered from breast-cancer surgery.

10 This gondola proposal of your most romantic dreams.


11 This absolute stunner of a Northern Lights proposal.

Lofoten, Norway… ______________________________________ WE'RE ENGAGED! What a better way to propose than in the heart of the Arctic Circle under the Northern Lights. It's taken a few years to plan but I always had this moment in mind & it seemed fitting as we are both landscape photographers who share a passion for photographing the aurora. Originally I was going to propose in Iceland last year but unfortunately Karlie decided to discard my secretly stashed ring (yes, that actually happened 😂 lol, we were trying to cut weight on a connecting flight from the Faroe Islands). Fortunately though my plan worked & tonight the aurora was firing in one of the most incredible displays of colour we have ever seen. I tricked Karlie into believing we were shooting a selfie & used a torch to light us up for the image. Much to her shock, it wasn't any normal selfie, and much to my shock, she said yes! 😝 This is a single image that was taken during the proposal. And now we may not have any of our own images up hanging on our walls at home…we may however, make an exception for this one. 💍 Dale & Karlie
