Sometimes the Big Question just needs to be complimented by the perfect destination. We believe that travel and romance are inextricably linked, and our Classic Proposals honour this relationship with trips to the kinds of destinations that proposals were meant for. It’s hard to beat a classic, and with a sense of Black Tomato exclusivity thrown in for good measure, these trips shed a new light on some of the most iconic proposal destinations on earth.
Michael didn’t believe in what he called ‘over the top and flashy’ proposals. He instead wanted to keep things simple, with a classic proposal in a setting that re-defined the realms of romance. His criteria was beautifully simple; landscapes, silence and an amazing view.
Taking Michael’s simplistic approach on board, we knew that a truly untouched and awe-inspiring destination was all that we needed to bring his perfect proposal to life. With that in mind, we decided that a cultural adventure in Myanmar would be the perfect option for the young couple who were looking for an off the beaten track experience.
We organised a 14 night adventure that soaked up the fascinating cultural heritage of Myanmar and incorporated the highlights of the country that never fails to inspire us. Michael and his girlfriend practised their skills at a lacquer workshop in Mandalay, they cooked amongst the culinary fabric of Yangon and enjoyed a luxurious cruise down the Irrawady River.
On the final morning of their trip, we arranged a private hot air balloon journey over the stunning temples of Bagan. It was there, as the sun began to rise, that Michael dipped his knee and popped the question to his unsuspecting girlfriend. And with the illuminated spires and undulating landscapes of Bagan as a background, we were delighted to hear that she accepted.
What they thought…
“Black Tomato created nothing short of the perfect trip for me and me fiancé. From day one, we were on the exact same page and when I told the team that I wanted a no-frills escape that paved the way to my proposal; they instinctively knew they kind of trip I was looking for. They really got to know me, spending the time to discover my loves and hates of travel, and then created exactly the kind of trip that suited the tastes of my fiancé and I.”
