#BNBling: Charming & Austin’s EPIC Surprise Proposal in Port Harcourt | 7th April Photography

Published

 on

port harcourt proposalWe predicted out of the box proposals this year but this one blew our imaginations away! Austin proposed to Charming after arranging a stop and search on the road.

As she looked downcast, he urged her to look up where a billboard was showing her photos, her family and friends from Lagos emerged, a table was set up outside where he dropped down on one knee, a 5 man orchestra appeared … the rest – history!

The moments were beautifully captured by 7th April Photography.

Enjoy & be inspired!

***

How We Met
from the bride to be, Charming
It all started at the beginning of the year 2014. A mutual friend of Austin and I gave my number to him. He tried calling but I never picked up because the number was strange, my line was new, only known to my close friends. So I wasn’t expecting any anonymous number. Our friend called to inform me that Austin has been calling. I decided to pick this ‘strange number’ … and he introduced himself and how he got my number and all. We had a friendly short chat on that day which lasted about two minutes. He went further to ask for my BB pin and if I was on What’s App, I said I would send him that once I ended the call but there was a little silence from my part for some days after he added me up on BBM (I didn’t want to ping first… and I wasn’t interested at all).

We soon started chatting little by little and he made it clear that he was a busy person and doesn’t really do the BBM and What’s App chatting but he would try to keep in touch via phone calls… at this point I was indifferent. So we communicated via phone calls (he did all the calling). He was very friendly on the phone.

Fast forward some weeks, Austin informed me that he was going to be in Lagos for some business trip (he is based in PHC) and that he would love to see me. I said to him “till then, if I’m chanced I’ll see you” (normal girls fronting). So he came to Lag and I decided to see him (this time I actually wanted to see the person I had been talking to and chatting with for some weeks).

I can remember everything that happened on that day…

Our first meeting was a bit awkward. Some day in February …so we planned to see at 3pm after his day’s schedule at the hotel he was lodging and at 3pm I was still at home. This man didn’t even bother to call to ask why I was running late or if I was still coming. To me, I was like what kinda man is this, very nonchalant and uncaring. I had to call him to notify him that I was on my way and he was like: “Ok fine, see you soon, call me when you get here”. I was already pissed and felt like going back home …I got there and he kept me waiting in the lobby for a while, instead of him to be awaiting my arrival, he was busy giving me directions on how to locate him. After roaming to and fro the lobby , he finally appeared. At this time I thought ‘What a man! What a date!’ We were together and Austin was forming all busy with his laptop and I was glued to my phone, chatting (I cared less, as he didn’t have my time).

Austin finally noticed me. We got talking and we had lunch together and he even did a drawing of me while I was sitting (my boo is a very good artist – FIRST thing I love about him). We spent some time together and it was time to go home.

At this point I was indifferent about him. The next day he asked to see me and I was reluctant, due to the previous day’s meeting, my sister, Vanessa, persuaded me to go and I finally did (I’m glad I did..). When he got back to PH after his Lagos business trip, Austin became resilient and persistent. “All time busy Austin” wasn’t busy anymore. This time he became so busy pursuing fine girl ..lool. Austin would call morning,afternoon , night, midnight…every time. He finally made his intentions known and according to him, he said he fell in love with me on our second meeting. As we got talking, I grew to know him better, grew fond of him and grew to like him and I decided to give him a try … and the rest they say is history. But Austin is a lucky guy oo..He didn’t even stress much and I just fell for him like that. I didn’t mention that he has a “magic tongue” that makes every phone call feel like you just spoke to Denzel Washington...lol!!! He just came in to my heart and chanced all the other guys on the queue before him..lol

The Proposal
From the groom to be, Austin
It started with a joint planning session with 4 friends (Ifeanyi, Tosin, Dominic & Mega) with everyone bringing in their beautiful ideas, some were on point and some were far from it. But all I needed was an idea that was out of this world. The first thing that came to my mind was a “Road Show”, but Charming being a shy person, I wondered, how will this work?

So back to the drawing board with team members having one mindset, the planning started. That same day, I received delivery of her engagement ring I ordered from ‘Blue Nile’. Everyone seeing the engagement ring got gingered and decided to help. A team of 5 grew to 36 people interested and dishing out evil and cool ideas all to make Charming tensed and surprised respectively.

First, someone thought of an advert screen, another thought of fireworks, NDLEA, TIMA-RIV, Mobile police …the ideas kept on coming. Someone in the team even mentioned that we could use a Helicopter.
Lol!!! I told them that we are going to bring all this crazy ideas together and put them in sequence.

I still love the traditional way of proposing to a lady in the restaurant, so what we had to do was to bring the restaurant setting outdoor on a major road in PHC.

From the way things were going, we decided to involve her colleagues at work and her family members with a notion that no one will let her know. That task was delegated to Ifeanyi who was dedicated in doing all flight bookings from Lagos to PHC, airport pick-ups and hotel accommodations.

My surprise for everyone was the Orchestra, I believe that having a 5 man band play a love tune to the lady I love at the point when I would say those beautiful words to her, would make the words sink in forever.

Dominic was in charge of the venue (Aztech Arcum), photography (7th April photography.) and video coverage. Tosin was in charge of the TIMA-RIV, NDLEA and Mobile Police men. Mega was in charge of the audio-visual, Seyi was in charge of logistics and arranging the dinner (Sparklyn Hotels). We rehearsed the sequence with every team member a couple of times before Saturday all to make sure that it goes as planned. The plan was to have the surprises come one after the other until she is completely swept off her feet.

In all, my fear was that Charming may have clue, being that several people were involved from her end and mine. At the end, she was totally clueless and astonished.

We had a party at my GRA residence to say thank you to everyone that was a part of the Set-up. That same night, my friends put together an after party at the Sky Bar. Why they were dancing and dining, I was only thanking God for a successful proposal and the beautiful lady he brought into my life.

  14. Yes

    September 23, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    Very original proposal idea, me likey!
    But why is the ring on the wrong finger please?

    • Yoyo

      September 23, 2014 at 3:05 pm

      The engagement ring should be on that Finger. So, it is NOT the WRONG LOCATION.

    • MC

      September 23, 2014 at 3:34 pm

      Nope. it’s defo the wrong finger.
      Engagement ring and wedding band both go on the ring finger (the one next to pinky)

    • MC

      September 24, 2014 at 10:04 am

      norma, it seems as though you have confused things.
      “the finger before the ring finger”,that would be the pinky finger (little finger)….and nobody has ever put rings there.
      in fact, the bride to be doesnt have it on her second finger….so what exactly are you saying or even looking at?
      You’ve just confused me LOL

    • Tt

      September 23, 2014 at 3:09 pm

      Please which is the right finger?
      I’ve asked dis question since the days of Jenifa getting engaged pictures but no response and l’m still clueless…
      BN plssssssss educate us with an article

    • N

      September 23, 2014 at 3:52 pm

      Traditionally, it’s the “Ring Finger”, finger between the middle and pinky fingers

    • Noma

      September 23, 2014 at 6:39 pm

      Traditionally it is the finger before the ring finger. Putting the engagement ring on the ring finger is an American thing and everyone has followed but the traditional English position for engagement rings is the 2nd finger as the bride to be in this proposal had it.

    • praiz

      September 23, 2014 at 7:52 pm

      No it isnt @ Norma. The traditional english way is on the ring before. It goes back to the old belief that the ring finger has a vein that runs all the way to the heart. I live in England and no one wears the engagement ring on the middle finger. In fact, only Nigerians do it.

      The only other way the engagement ring is worn is in the same position as described above but on the right hand ( this is popular in countries of eastern europe) and some scandinavian countries.

    • praiz

      September 23, 2014 at 7:55 pm

      On the finger before the little finger*

    This type of proposal just makes me angry at some men. To think that these type of men still exist and other men cant come and learn. Instead, na you go carry phone dey chase them about. This has made me set a new resolution for myself abeg #NoTimeForNonsense.

    Dear Le boo, better come to BN and learn how proposals are being done and stop wasting my time. If you are not serious, pull over, park well and let better man see road biko!!!!!!

      September 23, 2014 at 4:45 pm

      I acknowledge it is considered very romantic by many, but i believe it should depend on the couple. Every couple is different. and should strive to be themselves. If my husband had proposed to me in this way, I wouldn’t have liked it. I prefer something intimate, and which is what he did.

    • Blue Dove

      September 23, 2014 at 5:46 pm

      Me too you know. I would definitely not like a public proposal. Only me and you are enough. Each one to his own. Know thy partner.

    • anna

      September 23, 2014 at 7:00 pm

      I completely agree with you @ruky. I would feel so uncomfortable if i was proposed to this way. I’m too shy for this type of proposal but i appreciate the thought behind it.

      September 24, 2014 at 8:40 am

      lol, Dats the truth na. @AllergicToNonsense. no time oh

      To everyone dat feels this is too extreme: Well, no one is saying all proposals shld turn out like this. Even the very intimate ones too can be unique and different from the conventional. Someone said “To each his own”. Guess this worked for them. The whole idea is being unique, different and making every step in your relationship, translating to marriage, unique. Have a beautiful story to tell ur kids when they are here na about how their dad proposed, haba!!! its not too much abeg.

      Thank you BN for sharing this with us. Called Le Boo’s attention to this article yesterday. Not asking him to do this but he shld just wow me, Shikena!!!!

    • Ceeceelicious

      September 24, 2014 at 9:08 pm

    After having my heart almost irreparably damaged (I guess there’s something in the water there) in that city of sin PH,it is heart warming to see that good things can still come out of that place…

    All the best to the newly engaged couple,what you have is special,don’t lose it.

    Good job bro.! I am one of those men that would never plan a proposal like this. My proposal is going to be very private- just the two of us.

    ……Me again…..
    the ring is one the wrong finger. I often see this. is there meaning behind it being on that finger?

    • Ms Geeky 30

      September 23, 2014 at 5:30 pm

      Exactly! I do not understand it at all. The point of the traditional ring finger is that it was believed (before more was known about the circulatory system) that a vein runs from that finger right through to the heart.

    Great proposal! But that ish with the middle finger though….the engagement ring goes on the same finger as the wedding ring (the ulnar finger next to the little finger). Please future ‘engagees’/’engagers’ take note 🙂

Goodluck as you both begin your journey….. know that it is quite a complex journey , Set your boundaries and priorities and determine from get go to make it work.. Know you both got to work on it..

      Yep. Nothing beats 2 not 1 o, but 2 people’s determination to make a union work. Even the bible says can 2 walk together lest they agree?
