Mrs Macquarie’s Chair

Surprise Proposal Mrs Macquarie’s Chair

Jack and Janelle are the cutest high school sweethearts. After meeting in school and spending more than 10 years together, it was about time Jack decided to pop the question!!

Jack came to us with a relaxed by clear idea of how and where he wanted to propose to his beautiful partner, Janelle. How can you go past the stunning scenery of Mrs Macquarie’s Chair in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.

Jack’s surprise proposal at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair couldn’t have brought Janelle to more iconic, but beautiful place of Sydney for a surprise proposal! Pretending as though I was tourist taking photos of the view, I followed behind them both as they took to the stairs at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. As Jack walked Janelle down the steps, he seemed a little nervous, but confident of course.

Looking out at the beautiful Sydney Harbour Bridge, and Opera House, Jack got down on one knee and asked his beautiful girlfriend of 10 years to marry him with a stunning ring from Jacque Fine Jewellery.

The night couldn’t have been more clear over Sydney for this beautiful surprise engagement!

Jack, what do you love most about Janelle? What I love most about Jack is how kind and loving he is – especially towards our fur baby Nala! He’s a gentle soul and that really balances me out. 

Janelle, what do you love most about Jack? Janelle is my chaos! She is very motivating and that she keeps me on the straight and narrow, and propels me forward. I most love her candid nature and the love she has for her family.


Both Jack and Janelle have their eyes set on a destination wedding and maybe somewhere tropical! They are thinking Fiji (where Janelle is originally from) or Hawaii with close family and friends. 

Thank you to Emma Hampton Photography for passing these two beautiful people our way!

We can’t wait to see how their Fiji or Hawaiian wedding plans come along!
