The day you ask for your loved one’s hand in marriage is probably one of the biggest days of your life. We are regularly asked for suggestions for suitably romantic destinations for proposals. We recently provided a trip to Bruges for a client who wanted to pop the all-important question to his girlfriend.
Known as the ‘Venice of the North’, this enchanting medieval city is a puzzle of narrow cobbled streets and intricate waterways making a horse-drawn carriage or a boat the best and most romantic way to explore. Among the many beautiful places to visit in Bruges, Lake Minnewater is one definitely not to miss out. The lake, whose name aptly translates to ‘Lover’s Lake’, offers the most romantic and picturesque setting from which to enjoy stunning panoramic views of the city.
As with all of our breaks, the day started in true style and luxury: sipping chilled champagne and relaxing in the comfort of a private jet. Once in Bruges, we arranged for them to have a sumptuous lunch at the Michelin starred De Karmeliet restaurant.
