Wow, it was such a huge honour to be part of this special day.
Prannay contacted me to let me know he was planning on proposing to his girlfriend Ushma on the Pont de Bir Hakeim, overlooking the Eiffel Tower. However the twist was that Ushma did not even know her boyfriend was in Paris. She was over from Dubai to visit her brother who lives in London, and Prannay told her he was flying to India to see family!
So Prannay and I waited on the bridge for Ushma and her brother to walk across, and I’m not sure who was the most nervous out of the two of us! It was quite a battle to keep tourists away from Prannay’s chosen spot, and by the time Ushma arrived quite a crowd had gathered to witness him pop the question! I loved the look of shock on her face as he walked up to her and then proceeded to get down on one knee! Of course she said yes, and they got a big cheer from their new fans 🙂
Once Ushma had got over the shock we took some portraits along the bridge and on the Champs des Mars just as the sun was setting, then the following morning (whilst they nursed their hangovers!) we strolled along the Canal St Martin for some more engagement pics.
They plan on getting married in India next year, and I wish them a long and happy life together.
Congratulations Prannay & Ushma x
