Engagement proposal idea: ‘Love is in the air’

Engagement proposal idea: ‘Love is in the air’


After researching for a unique way of proposing, I came across the idea of using skywriting/banner to ask the special question to a loved one.


The guy named Justin (aged 24) is Australian and the girl named Ally (aged 25) is British.

The guy is a successful marketing director for a large events company in Melbourne. He grew up in Brisbane and moved to Melbourne at the age of 22 to kick-start his professional career. Justin promotes events for a living so he loves attending the most extravagant, quirky and fun events that the city and other cities in Australia have to offer. He is very sociable and hard working.

Ally is 25 years old and after finishing her studies in International Business Management at Newcastle University at the age of 22, she took a gap year to go and work/travel abroad in Australia. Whilst on her travels, she attended some of the biggest events and festivals in Australia, such as the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne. During her time working and exploring Melbourne, she attended the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, of which Justin also attended as part of his work. They met whilst both enjoying some wine in one of the marquees and they got into long discussion. From this, they found that they shared much of the same interests.

They continued to talk to one another and regularly met up at other events before finally becoming a couple.

Ally managed to extend her visa for another 2 years before eventually moving to Australia where she secured a management position in a large recruitment agency in Melbourne. Ally and Justin were living happily together over this 2-year period and Justin has the intention of proposing to her.


The couple decide to spend New Year’s Eve in Sydney.


Justin surprises Ally by booking New Year’s Eve at the luxurious Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney. The hotel restaurant boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, which overlook Sydney Harbor Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Justin books a table that sits adjacent to the windows so the couple can really enjoy the spectacular views.

Justin has also booked a surprise ‘skywriter’ plane (there are a few companies in Sydney that can cater for this) that will fly by in moderate distance past the hotel restaurant just after the couple have enjoyed their meal. Justin will turn Ally’s attention towards the view out the window. The plane will have the banner ‘Will you marry me Ally?’ attached to the end as it does a fly by past the window. Justin will then get down on one knee and pop the question himself. A bottle of champagne will then be brought over for celebration.

This first part of the proposal will take place late evening and will end with them enjoying cocktails and lounging in the hotel bar with phenomenal views of the New Year’s Eve firework display over Sydney Harbor Bridge at midnight.
