The most magical proposal ever?

29 Nov 2016

A Kent couple recently got engaged with the help of national jewellers, Beaverbrooks, and street magician, Luca Gallone

Gavin Pepper recently enlisted the help of street magician, Luca Gallone, to propose to his partner, Stephanie Cunningham, in London's Westfield shopping centre.

Approached by Luca, Stephanie did not suspect a thing when asked to partake in one of his magic tricks. During the trick, Stephanie was handed a folded playing card which revealed the words 'Will you marry me?', prompting Gavin to get down on one knee and present a sparkling engagement ring. As Stephanie said 'yes', onlookers cheered on the happy couple.

Made possible after Gavin sought the help of national jewellers, Beaverbrooks to create the magical moment, the proposal took months of planning but was worth the effort. Watch the video below.

Lorna Haddon, diamond ring and jewellery buyer at Beaverbrooks, said: “A proposal is such an important occasion – it’s the little moments and details that make it extra-special, so this Christmas we wanted to help one couple create a magical moment they would remember forever."

“Using a street magician certainly added the element of surprise and we’re thrilled to have had the chance to work with Gavin to make his magical proposal a reality.” 

Gavin said: “I’ve always been one for romantic gestures so wanted to make sure the proposal was something really different and memorable. I’m so grateful to Beaverbrooks and the magician for helping us create a special moment we will both remember forever.”

Stephanie said: ““I really didn’t expect it at all – it was such an amazing surprise and a truly magical moment we won’t be forgetting any time soon."

The couple are hoping for Luca to perform at their wedding.
