A romantic proposal

A marriage proposal was beamed onto the walls of a Lake District Castle in a romantic gesture

Muncaster, in the western Lake District, was the scene of a romantic gesture fit for a princess last weekend when an Accrington man’s marriage proposal to his girlfriend was beamed onto the historic castle walls.

Mat Burrow came up with the idea after searching for the most romantic and memorable way to pop the question to his girlfriend Scarlett Jepson. He then approached Peter Frost-Pennington from Muncaster Castle who was happy to help out with the plan.

Mat and Scarlett love the Lake District, so Mat arranged a special trip to Muncaster for his proposal. When the couple went for a romantic evening stroll around the gardens a stunned Scarlett watched as the walls of the Castle lit up with hearts and roses, and a slide show of the couple’s lives, followed by ‘Scarlett will you marry me? Love Mat.’

Scarlett says “It was the best surprise ever. I was totally overwhelmed with the whole light show. I was speechless. Then when Mat’s question beamed all over the Castle walls I turned to find him on one knee with the ring, I immediately shouted ‘yes of course’. I loved it, it was the perfect proposal.”

Mat, 27, who is a Cover Supervisor/ Inclusive Sport Co-ordinator Pendle Vale College in Nelson, Lancashire and Scarlett, 22, who is a sales advisor for a coach company, are expecting a baby daughter, and they are now saving up for their wedding.

Mat says “Muncaster was the ideal place for the proposal, mixing the picturesque backdrop of the Castle with a fantastic surprise light show. The Castle and the surroundings were incredible and the romantic setting created by Peter made it perfect.”

After the proposal, the couple went for a luxury celebratory dinner at the nearby Pennington hotel.

Peter Frost-Pennington from Muncaster Castle says “Muncaster is a very romantic place and I was delighted to play cupid for this young couple. Mat and I schemed together and I think we produced a wonderfully original proposal to sweep any young lady off her feet. We are delighted she said yes after all our hard work.”

Muncaster, with its beautiful architecture and famous gardens, has long been recognised as a romantic setting, with the poet Ruskin describing the view from the Terrace as “the gateway to paradise.”
