A secret proposal on Grace Bay beach

A couple of weeks back we received a phone call from Robin, the food an beverage manager at the Seven Stars Resort,  asking us to help him out organizing a secret proposal on Grace Bay beach. His girlfriend Jena had absolutely no idea what was going to happen. Robin told her they were going for a walk on Grace Bay beach.

After a few text messages about possible locations for the secret  proposal  we decided to use a location at the end of Grace Bay beach, away from all the hotels and as private as possible. The weather wasn’t cooperating much that afternoon and we all got a little worried that Jena thought a beach walk might not be a good idea. Luckily the weather cleared just at the right time.

On August 19th, about an hour before sunset, Robin finally proposed to Jena on the most beautiful beach in the world, Grace Bay in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and she said YES!

We are looking very much forward to their wedding day. Anita hopes already it will be in the Netherlands.  Many congratulations to Robin and Jena. Here are a few images from the secret proposal…..

A pure Turks and Caicos proposal.

Planning a marriage proposal is always a “test”. How to make it original, unique, memorable? Ryan knocked it out of the park ! While I masqueraded as a member of the crew of Kenard Cruising we sailed up to a remote beach where Melissa and Ryan disembarked to walk, soak up the sun and look for shells.  On the way back Melissa “discovered” a conch shell with a phrase they often use between each other written inside. She turned around and Ryan was on one knee!!! From there it was all tears of joy, love, and laughter. The “photo shoot” ? Well really it was just trying to capture 10% of the emotion that was self evident and all around!!!  So many congratulations to Melissa and Ryan on this amazing day.
