On Monday 16th September, I got a message from Ben asking if I'd film his proposal to his girlfriend, Jessica. Ben had a simple and beautiful way of proposing, influenced by Bob Dylan.
On 12th October Jess walked into a church filled with candles and watched this film, to then turn around to see Ben on his knee with a ring.
She said yes.
I've known Ben and Jessica for a few years, they're a great couple who inspire, challenge and care for each other with an honest and sensitive love. It was a privilege to be a part of their engagement, and I wish them the very best in the future.
Please note: Ben wanted Jessica to walk into the church with some audio, so there's around 28 seconds of the track playing before the footage begins.
The music continues to play after the footage, so that the moment wasn't lost when Jessica turned around to see Ben.
Filmed on 5D mk III
Track Ben Howard - Promise (chosen by Ben)
