As a Montreal proposal photographer, I have had the pleasure of capturing some of the most romantic and heartwarming moments between couples. One such moment was the surprise proposal of Florian to Megan last September, which took place in the middle of the flowery brook at the Montreal Botanical Garden. The beauty of the garden served as the perfect backdrop for this special moment, and I am honored to have been a part of it.

Surprise Wedding Proposal at the Flowery Brook

Florian and Megan both love visiting Botanical Gardens so it was a no-brainer that they had to see the one in Montreal when they visited the city for the first time. Florian chose the Flowery Brook area to propose because he knew Megan loved colorful blooms and wanted to find a quiet and secluded spot to pop the question.

Florian and Megan arrived at the Botanical Garden on a sunny September afternoon, and as they walked along the path, Megan was completely unaware of what was about to happen.

Since the botanical garden is really popular among photography lovers I was not far from them pretending to take photos of the flowers.

When they reached the designated proposal spot me and Florian had deiced on, Florian got down on one knee and asked Megan to marry him.

She was completely surprised and overjoyed, and of course, she said yes!

This is my favorite part as a Montreal proposal photographer, being able to capture such magical and unreal moments.

Megan couldn’t believe what was happening!

Couple’s photoshoot at Montréal’s Botanical Garden

After the proposal, we continued the photo shoot around the Botanical Garden, capturing the couple’s love and happiness. We took photos among the blooming flowers, under the shade of the trees, and by the tranquil ponds. Despite being surrounded by other visitors, Florian and Megan were in their own world, lost in each other’s love.

My top tips for planning a wedding proposal at Montréal’s Botanical Garden

The Montreal Botanical Garden is a stunning location for any occasion, but it is particularly perfect for a proposal. With its vibrant flowers, tranquil ponds, and winding paths, the garden provides a peaceful and romantic atmosphere.

If you’re considering proposing there, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • If it will be your first time at the garden, deciding where to propose might be a struggle since the garden is so diverse and vast. Make sure to hire a photographer like me who is very familiar with the garden and who will be able to give you personalized suggestions of where to propose depending on your vision.
  • If you’re planning on proposing on a busier day like on a weekend or a holiday but still want to have some privacy, stay away from the Rose garden, the Chinese garden, and greenhouses. They are beautiful but will be packed with tourists!
  • If you love flowers and plan on having them around your proposal location make sure to check the Calendar of Blooms of Montreal’s Botanical Garden
  • If you’re planning on proposing inside of the greenhouses keep in mind that a paid photography permit will have to be purchased in addition to your entrance fee.

Being a Montreal proposal photographer allows me to witness and capture some of the most intimate and cherished moments between couples. Florian’s proposal to Megan was one such moment, and I am grateful to have been able to document it for them. The Montreal Botanical Garden provided a stunning backdrop to this special occasion, and I am sure that Florian and Megan will cherish these photos for years to come.

If you are planning a proposal in Montreal, consider the Montreal Botanical Garden as the perfect location. And if you want to capture the moment forever, don’t hesitate to contact me for a proposal photoshoot. I would be honored to be a part of your special day.
