Over the past few years, social media feeds have been bombarded with seriously over the top wedding proposals.
Forget hiding your ring in a piece of cake or a “Marry me?” sign hanging off a highway bridge — that’s positively old school.
These days, it’s all choreographed flash mobs and sign-holding scuba divers, complete with a viral YouTube video, of course.
Is it any wonder, then, that we are getting a little intimidated by it all, and need a little extra help to get down on one knee?
That’s where professional proposal planners like Kate Elizabeth come in— to help hapless marriage hopefuls nail their ticket to happily-ever-afters.
The self-proclaimed “hopeless romantic” engineered her first proposal as a one-off favour for a friend who had been putting off popping the question because he was worried he couldn’t give his girlfriend the “dream proposal” she deserved.
“The whole experience made me so happy, [I thought] ‘I’d love to make this a full time job’ and three years later this is what I’m doing,” she said.

We were so intrigued by Cupid-esque Kate's line of work, we asked her a whole lot of questions about it.
