Wedding Proposal at the Orchards Holiday Park

The staff and guests at The Orchards Holiday Park Newbridge, Isle of Wight, were treated to a rare event when returning camper Jonathan Palmer 30, decided to propose to his long term girlfriend Rachel Hughes, also 30,  beside the outdoor heated pool. Jonathan met Rachel when they were both just 12 years old. They were both on holiday with their families. It was a chance meeting that led to a 18 year romance. Rachel said “ The Orchards outdoor pool is very special to us because we had our first kiss there.”
Jonathan and Rachel kept in touch and  both families holidayed together several times. From 2013 onwards Jonathan and Rachel camped on their own at The orchards. When they returned on 1st August this year, Rachel had no idea that Jonathan had gone to such great lengths to set the scene for a perfect wedding proposal. He organised a pianist, soloist, flowers and for Island  photographer Jason Swain to take these lovely photographs.
With surprised guests looking on Jonathan went down on one knee by the side of the pool. A very delighted Rachel said yes!
We are so pleased for both of them and wish them every happiness!.
