The Course of True Love Never Runs Smooth – Especially when that course involves proposing on the side of a mountain!
We felt a bit like God this week or should I rephrase that and say the God of Love! Yes, I am proud to announce that we played a key part in the best day of someone’s life to date and I admit the amore has gone slightly to our heads!!
This week myself and James headed down to the Three Valleys to organise a marriage proposal for one of our clients. Yes, here at Independent Mountain we not only deal with matters of holidays but of the heart aswell! (It was basically a little idea/business venture I set up in the UK and brought with me when I moved to the mountains organising Perfect Proposals on the Pistes!)
So all was in place, the client (female proposing to her boyfriend), were staying in Mottaret and unbeknown to her betrothed she was planning to pop the question up the mountain half way through the holiday. Here’s where we came in, as we were hired to recce the best spot up the mountain (preferably at one of the highest points to get the best views) where we would then organise a Champagne picnic with the words “Will you Marry Me?” etched in the snow against a backdrop of stunning mountain peaks and bluebird skies!
No problem, we said!
And it wasn’t a problem (as we had organised scenarios like this before) until, the aforementioned betroved took a nasty fall whilst snowboarding the day before and was rendered immobile! Hmm getting him to hobble up the mountain was going to be tricky!
Dreams of mountain side proposals were cast aside as we worked at lightning speed the morning of the proposal to find a suitable and equally as stunning plan B!
After a frantic couple of hours exploring the resort and keeping in mind it needed to be somewhere picturesque, private and not to far a hobble to from the hotel we found the perfect spot that ticked all the boxes! Phew!
Now all we had to deal with was digging a pathway to the snowy boulder that was going to be our canvas for the proposal, avert the oncoming snow plough that was set on a direction to plough though the champagne picnic and literally shoo away curious passers by who wanted to take pictures of the crazy lady in the snow digging out her marriage proposal! I received so many rounds of applause and shouts of “Bon Chance” from people wrongly assuming I was the proposee!
We managed to skilfully avert any incoming disasters and the proposal site remained in tact ready for the romantic pair. He said “yes” and both our client and new fiancé celebrated their happy news over a bottle of snow chilled Champagne! All in all a good days work for Independent Mountain!
