Notting Hill - The Movie Proposal

Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_08 The couple arrive at London's famous Notting Hill to start a personalised tour of all of the filming locations in the movie. A couple of weeks ago, The Proposers arranged possibly one of our most romantic proposals in London's Notting Hill. Robert, who is from the Netherlands, flew to London with his girlfriend Gillian in order to propose. Having looked through his consultation form (where he wrote some incredibly lovely things about his girlfriend) we noticed that Gillian loved the movie Notting Hill, so we decided to have this as the theme of their proposal. This is what happened: Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_03 The Proposers photographer was on hand (paparazzi style) to film them in action....and off they go! Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_01 First stop: The Coronet Cinema. This is where Hugh Grant's character goes to watch the movie Helix which starts Anna Scott (aka Julia Roberts) Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_05 Gillian poses in front of the 'private garden' - the scene where Hugh Grant says the famous 'oopsidaisy!" Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_09 Gillian and Robert are then told to head to a secret venue (which incidentally is Hugh Grant's favourite drinking spot!) The Proposers have been hard at work decorating the room with Notting Hill Props personalised to the couple. Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_11 The Travel Bookshop, complete with travel books of all of the places Gillian and Robert would like to visit photo One particularly special book "From Notting Hill to Love Actually" from Ali McNamara (you can buy it on amazon!) Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_12 The Ritz scenes where Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts meet Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_23 Can you guess this scene? Yup, it's the cinema scene when Hugh Grant can't find his glasses so has to wear his swimming goggles instead! Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_34 Portabello road scene. We had "aint no sunshine' playing on the sound system at this point. Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_31 The famous 'Oops a Daisy" scene (our personal fave!) Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_47 The "Horse and Hound" scene. As Hugh Grant said, "You are Horse and Hound's favourite actress" Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_28 Pictures of the couple were hung all around the room to create a 'floating gallery' Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_40 Little romantic touches - roses and ribbons Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_41 The Big reveal! Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_52 Instructions for Gillian were left around the room Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_56 Gillian and Robert arrive and start to look around (how excited does she look?) Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_53 We LOVE this photo. They both look so happy! Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_58 Gillian begins to turn over the pieces of card from the 'big reveal" Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_59 We think she realises what the words under the card say! Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_60 And now for that special moment..... Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_62 Robert gets down on one knee!! Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_63 SHE SAYS YES!!! Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_64 Look at the excitement on Gillian's face! So sweet! Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_76 The gorgeous couple surrounded by their proposal scene Gillian_&_Robert_Proposal_85 So what did the big reveal say? Robert had taken photos of himself holding up letters that spell out "Will you marry me?" He even included his and Gillian's family in the photos. The "M" on Marry me is held by Gillian's dad and Robert, taken just as Robert asked his permission to marry his daughter.
