 On the blog today, we have a *A Picture Perfect Proposal in Vietnam* 

* Who: Jon and Lauren

* Where: Halong Bay, Vietnam

* When: October 2013

Jon and Lauren's Holiday in Vietnam

Jon and Lauren’s Holiday in Vietnam

* Their Story: Jon and Lauren met during their time at Exeter University when they were in the same halls together back in 2005. 

Lauren stated, “Jon maintains that even if we were not in the same halls, he would have found me somehow!” What a cutie Jon is!

* The Proposal: Lauren beautifully explains how their picture-perfect proposal happened whilst holidaying in South East Asia:

“In Vietnam you are constantly surrounded by people- suddenly a moment came as were rowing amongst the beautiful limestone cliff formations, when the views were postcard perfect and nobody was in sight. Time stood still as Jon attempted to stand up, wobbling the boat from side to side, and managed to get on one knee and say a few words.”

* The Groom’s Take: This gorgeous destination proposal really is as spontaneous as they come, which is very charming indeed:

“I came up with the plan about 3 minutes before it happened. No ring- just a perfect setting. I think I was as surprised as Lauren!”

* The Unsuspicious Bride: Lauren had literally no idea that Jon would propose and was not expecting it at all, so the charming proposal was a lovely surprise for Lauren (and Jon it would seem making it even more endearing!)

* Proposal Love: It is really refreshing to hear that Jon and Lauren got engaged as it felt right at the time for them with no set expectations and the style of proposal reflects their free spirited love of travel:

“That it was just us, spontaneous and we were doing what we loved, travelling around the world. There was no pressure to get it ‘right’.”

The boat Jon and Lauren were on in Halong Bay

Ring: Jon and Lauren had only spoken very briefly about rings and then chose the ring together after the proposal had taken place,

“We found a small local jewellers while skiing in Switzerland and found Laurens perfect ring.”

* Describe the proposal in 3 words: Spontaneous Beautiful Canoe

* Announcement of the Engagement: It is really lovely to hear that Jon and Lauren were able to enjoy the engagement as a couple whilst in such an amazing location – what an incredibly special time this must have been for them:

“We kept it to ourselves for the remaining 2 weeks of the holiday- it allowed us both to get over the shock of what just happened. We then told family as soon as we got back.”

* Reactions to the Engagement: “Excitement!”

* Celebration of the Engagement: Jon and Lauren celebrated their engagement in style – with the remaining two weeks of their travels!

Jon and Lauren took time to relax on a tropical island after the proposal.

* Remembering the Proposal: With such a wow proposal backdrop, they will always have fond memories of their trip to South East Asia and their lovely proposal. We love a pearl at *Sparkle Pearls and Lace* and Lauren’s pearl inspired proposal keepsake is just delightful:

“The photos of halong bay will always bring back the memories. We have some pearls that we brought in Halong Bay which Lauren had on her wedding dress, and has now turned into a necklace, one for her, and one for Emma, Lauren’s little sister.”

* Best thing about being engaged: 

Lauren stated, “Planning a really big and wonderful party for all of our friends and family and adding another chapter in our lives together.”

Jon added,  “A lot of reason to celebrate!”

* What *Sparkle Pearls and Lace* love about this: A huge thanks to Jon and Lauren for sharing their fabulous destination proposal with us. This glorious location really did create a picture perfect proposal and I just adore the spontaneous charm – what a story to tell!  

We shall showcase Jon and Lauren’s stunning rustic, autumnal inspired wedding day later this week.
