Proposal Tour

Check out our proposal idea, a romantic punting tour with a photoshoot.

What does the Proposal Punting Experience involve?

An Extraordinary Marriage Proposal on a punting tour with flowers, a picnic and some perfect shots. 

You will be briefed on exactly the perfect place to propose during the punting tour, how to do it and how to get your loved one into the exact right place whilst keeping it a surprise. We provide flowers, a picnic, and the whole thing is secretly captured on camera by Chris Radburn our very experienced photographer. After the initial proposal, we will take you to some other select places on the river to pose for more photos, that way we guarantee some perfect shots. Because every picture tells a story and captures beautiful moments.

As an alternative you can have a video made like the one made for Harrison & Amber. This costs a little extra.

The proposal tour is a private punting tour as opposed to a shared punting tour.

Make this day the Most Romantic experience and have it captured by a camera. 

How do we create the perfect proposal?

The Scholars Punting Cambridge team knows the river very well, however, we are not knowledgeable enough to calculate the exact lighting for a specified time and date.
The day before we trial the wedding shots factoring in the congestion on the river, the lighting, the weather, and the optimum location for your proposal and the photographer.
We always suggest that you go after 6 pm if it’s summertime so that it isn’t quite so busy on the river.

How much does this service cost?

The complete package starts from £300 off peak, & up to £500 at peak time on a Saturday peak season. The price can vary during the weekends in the summer when we charge more.

If you want a video making, then this is an extra £150 on the price.

How to book

Please call up to book. We don’t have this as an automated booking as there is a lot to prepare.
