Would you really propose to your beloved by drone?
Although this is my personal blog, my life is pretty much intertwined with the news and information I receive through my work contacts. I’m a journalist categorised as tech-savvy so I get news releases about tecchie products and services. Here’s one that might raise an eyebrow. So you wan to pop the question, but would you be prepared to propose to your beloved by drone?
I have heard of many weird and wonderful proposals in my time, but one company seems to be attempting to make the use of a drone a popular choice for marriage proposals. Here’s their press release:
DRONE YOU WANT ME BABY?
-Drones specialist launches high-tech wedding proposal kit-
-Wedding proposal package includes drone delivery and HD drone footage-
Love birds hoping to sweep their partner off their feet with an alternative wedding proposal can now do so with a high-tech drone delivery package.
Romantic tech-fans will now be able to propose to their other half via a professionally piloted drone, which delivers the engagement ring to a prearranged location on cue. The Wedding Proposal Package created by DronesDirect.co.uk, the UK’s largest online drones e-tailer includes a second drone which is used to capture footage of the special occasion and the fiancé-to-be’s reaction.
Those who want to ask the big question in a different way can organise the panic-free proposal and leave the detail to trained drone pilots. The package includes edited Ultra HD 4K video footage of the special moment to share with friends and family.
The trend of adventurous wedding proposals has grown in popularity in recent years, with celebrities such as Kanye West proposing to Kim Kardashian after hiring a baseball stadium and orchestra to ask the big question.
The package, which costs £4494.95 from DronesDirect.co.uk, includes location and date planning, use of two qualified drone pilots, hire of DJI Phantom 4 and DJI Inspire One drones, and HD 4K footage of the proposal. The elaborate stunt package allows couples to choose their own engagement ring ahead of the event.
Tim Morley, managing director at DronesDirect.co.uk said, “Popping the big question is a milestone moment in everyone’s life, and we wanted to help make it extra special in the only way we know how. The Wedding Proposal Package allows the love-struck partner to plan the moment in advance so they can be at ease when the time comes.
“The package gives the happy couple chance to relive the special moment again, and share footage of the moment with friends and family on social media. It’s ideal for capturing reactions and stunning location backdrops, as well as adding a brilliantly romantic story to the proposal.
“We were inspired to launch the service following an enquiry by an ambitious romantic who unfortunately got cold feet, however we thought it was a great idea so decided to offer the opportunity to others using our in-house resources, incorporating DronesDirect.co.uk’s very best test drones and qualified pilots.”
I can’t wait to hear what people think of this, um, proposal. Would you really propose to your beloved by drone? Have you been proposed to or proposed in a rather unusual way? Hit that comment box now!
