With Valentine’s Day fast approaching we are turning our thoughts to all things romantic. You may be surprised to know that 10% of marriage proposals actually happen on Valentine’s Day. So what makes for the perfect proposal? Gazing out onto a deserted beach, a romantic candle lit dinner or cwtching up in front of the fire have all been popular choices for those life-changing words, “Will you marry me” to be spoken at St Brides Spa Hotel.
If you are thinking about popping the question and are looking for inspiration, we thought we would share with you some of our guests’ romantic proposals that have had us all gushing in the office!
Katrina Robbins was proposed to on Saundersfoot Beach in December 2015 by her partner Tim. Tim had secretly packed a suitcase for her and smuggled it into their car without her knowing before embarking on a trip to Saundersfoot. He got down on one knee on the beach, and then surprised her even further with a night at St Brides Spa Hotel to celebrate their engagement.
Katrina says, “Celebrating at St Brides was amazing, from the reception staff to bar staff to waiters everyone congratulated us and made it even more special. Everything about the night was just amazing, from dinner to the amazing views to the infinity pool the next day. Saundersfoot has always been so special to me as I came here on childhood holidays. Tim has made it even more amazing and magical now that he proposed on the beach. St Brides topped off the whole day and made it so amazing. We enjoy it so much we’re coming back for our mini moon. St Brides is truly a magnificent hotel.”

Our location on a Cliff top overlooking Carmarthen Bay provides the perfect backdrop for the most romantic setting. One of our guests’ secretly visited the Hotel before checking-in with his girlfriend so he could find the perfect spot to pop the question. He decided upon the Infinity Pool – what could be more romantic – a warm outdoor salt pool overlooking Saundersfoot Harbour, with what feels like nothing separating from the ocean below….
One of our favourite proposals was by a guest who had commissioned a hot air balloon to fly directly opposite the terrace of our Cliff Restaurant with the words ‘Will you Marry me?” whilst the couple were enjoying lunch! (She said yes!)
So, without further ado, if you are thinking of proposing this Valentine’s Day please get in touch with us and we would love to help make such a special moment even more magical.
