Our workshop is located in Cranfield, Bedfordshire, where you’ll find us in a charming converted barn – so charming in fact that one man decided it would be the perfect spot to get down on one knee and propose to his now fiance.
At the Goldsmithy, we meet many couples looking for beautiful bespoke engagement rings or wedding bands, and always strive to ensure they leave with a smile on their face and a ring design they love. So that’s why when Dean Odell came to us this year with the idea of his surprise proposal to his partner at our workshop, we were more than happy to help.
Dean was a big fan of our new workshop location, and after first meeting with us he came up with the plan to bring his girlfriend to our idyllic spot in Perry Hill Farm, Cranfield, to ask her to marry him.
Proposing without a ring is becoming a very popular choice for many couples, as they love the idea of bonding over designing their own ring together. At The Goldsmithy, we will make this process as special and easy as possible by sitting you down and guiding you through the design process, ensuring you get everything you wanted from this experience, including the ring of your dreams.
In this case, Dean decided to get down on one knee right outside our front door in our picturesque courtyard. Having brought his partner to us under the pretence they’d won a photoshoot (which no doubt explained the photographer), she had no idea why they were actually there. So after she inevitably said yes, we welcomed them inside with a glass of bubbly each in hand and shared with them the special moment where they designed their ring as a newly engaged couple.
At The Goldsmithy, we’re able to help you create the perfect engagement ring for your dream proposal. Book your consultation now if you’re ready to start the designing journey. Alternatively, visit our gallery.
