The Clwydian Range is perfect for those hoping to plan a majorly romantic surprise proposal away from the masses. And while proposing on Snowdon is often the first thing that comes to mind (and worked really well for this dreamy Snowdon proposal), it requires hours of walking to get there, makes it impossible to predict what the weather will be like on your chosen date and things can get super crowded on the UK’s busiest mountain, even on weekdays! If previous experience as a proposal photographer in Snowdonia has taught me anything – there are many other secret proposal locations in Wales that are more easily accessible, have equally epic views, and were practically made for a once-in-a-lifetime proposal experience! Combine your surprise proposal with a walking holiday in Wales and stay in an uber-romantic log cabin for extra brownie points!

Why the Clwydian Range is perfect for an outdoor surprise proposal

Located not far from the border of England and North East Wales, you can easily reach the Clwydian Range from anywhere in the UK, making it the perfect destination for an outdoor proposal in these beautiful hills. Pack a flask of tea (or something a little stronger to celebrate afterward) alongside the all-important ring box and enjoy some truly magical views before asking the love of your life to share the rest of their lives with you! I can’t promise the weather will play ball but I CAN promise your surprise proposal will be as epic as possible, whatever the Welsh weather!
