An Enchanting Tale: Proposing marriage with a Drone Light Show


When it comes to romantic gestures, few things capture the imagination quite like a drone proposal of marriage. And what better way to ask that life-altering question than with a dazzling display of lights pirouetting in the night sky? Enter the world of drone light shows – an innovative and spellbinding way to pop the question to your significant other.

Setting the Scene

We were approached by Rhys Whelan, 30, who popped the question to Megan Greenwood, 27, at an event we produced called Firework Champions. The display took place at Newby Hall near Ripon, North Yorkshire, on Saturday night.

It is the first time in the UK a drone proposal has been flown as a swarm.

DroneSwarm Director Mat Lawrence said “It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rhys to design and fly the UK’s first ever drone light show proposal display for his partner Megan.  Not only was it a surprise for her but also the attendees of the event at Newby Hall.  It was an emotional experience.”
