Fabulous festive engagements: Got your own engagement story? Share it with Weetwood Hall


Did you get engaged over the festive period? If you did, and your loved one finally popped the big question over the Christmas break, no doubt you’re bursting with excitement. We’d love to hear about your festive engagement news, so please share any romantic, thrilling and humorous engagement stories with us on our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn feeds.

We think you’ll agree, whether it’s Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter or any celebration, festive occasions are the perfect time for partners to propose and to embark on an exciting engagement.

Here at Weetwood Hall, we love a romantic festive engagement or wedding story, so much so that we’ve found several festive engagement ideas we thought you’d love to hear about.

Put the engagement ring on the Christmas tree

Baubles dazzle on the Christmas tree that’s for sure, but not as much as a stunning engagement ring, glinting in the cosy flare of the fairy lights!

Decorating the tree a little more sparsely than normal and instead of having the angel or star in prime position at the top, putting a glistening engagement ring in its place, is a festive engagement that can’t go wrong! Or can it?

Propose in Christmas lights

For partners looking for a flamboyant way to start their engagement, this festive proposal is guaranteed to turn a few heads!

Instead of adorning the roof or garden with Christmas lights that draw out Father Christmas or Rudolph, arranging the lights so they spell out the words ‘Will You Marry Me” is one way to start the festive season with a bang!

Of course, Christmas isn’t the only popular time for lovers to ask their partner for their hand in marriage. Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days of the year for marriage proposals to take place and for engagements to get off to a flying start.

Bring out the roses

Roses are red, violets are blue…. you know the rest! Yes, what could be a more romantic gesture on Valentine’s Day than to shower your loved one with roses? Why not incorporate the world’s most romantic flower into your proposal?

As The Knot recommends in its ‘Wedding Proposals on Valentine’s Day’ feature, spread roses everywhere – in the bed, in the car, in the bathtub, in her shoes, and so on.  Take advantage of the day for lovers by proposing to your partner with the aid of roses this Valentine’s Day.

An Easter engagement

If Valentine’s Day seems a little ‘obvious’ to pop the question of a lifetime, waiting until Easter might be more up your street.

With the flowers in bloom, chocolate in abundance, and the weather a little warmer, Easter is a joyous time of year and can make a perfect time to embark on an engagement.

What’s more, Easter proposals are baked in creativity. One memorable way to propose at Easter could be to make an Easter Bunny proposal. Yes, you did read correctly, an Easter Bunny proposal may involve having the Easter Bunny hide an engagement ring amongst an Easter egg hunt, then ensuring your partner finds that particular treat! Or, if you’re feeling particularly comical, you could always dress up as the Easter bunny yourself and present your loved one with a beautiful engagement ring, before exposing your identity – a boggling idea but a proposal that’s guaranteed to be remembered in years to come!

If you have had the pleasure of getting engaged this year, no doubt making wedding plans are a top priority. Booking a wedding venue may be high on your agenda. If you are having a wedding in Leeds and are looking for a quality, magical and memorable wedding venue hall, Weetwood Hall in Headingley on the outskirts of Leeds is a fabulous place for couples to tie the knot.

Our impressive 17th century Manor House and its extended grounds of lawn and woodland, provide a fairy tale venue for a wedding in Leeds to remember.
