Creativity and location are the keys when planning a surprise proposal and both in Verona and Africa  I know everything about “my” places and I’ll find a perfectly quiet and romantic location with a stunning view or setting for you two.

Natural born Killers (1994)
This is the first movie wedding proposal and wedding scene that hits me, because it was one of the most controversial films I’ve ever seen, provocative, violent but also brilliant I was not sure if I had to include this clip. Mickey and Mallory are cold-blooded killers that media made look like superstars.  They were also so deeply in love with one other and their wedding vows were something to remember so I decided to share this clip
I hope you enjoyed and had fun with my personal compilation of movie and tv shows marriage proposals, and why not you could be inspired by some of them for your surprise fairy tale wedding proposal.
