Christmas Eve morning turned out to be rather special in the Swiss Mountains in 2018.
Chen Yi and his beautiful girlfriend Esther were on their travels around Europe when they stopped for a couple of days in Switzerland.
The gorgeous couple, having been together for seven years, decided that they’d spend Christmas in Interlaken and visit the surrounding area, including Wengen in the Jungfrau region.
What Esther didn’t know was that Chen Yi had made plans to propose to her… right here at the foot of The Eiger – a 3,967-metre world-famous mountain of the Bernese Alps.
“I couldn’t find anywhere in Malaysia that would be spectacular enough and I wanted to propose in the snow and the mountains,” Chen Yi told me.
It took weeks of meticulous planning working with various Swiss partners of Story Of Your Day, which I’m looking forward to sharing in a blog post very soon. It was well worth it though when Esther said ‘YES’ …
After warming up in the Männlichen Restaurant with a hot chocolate the couple took to the slopes and headed towards Grindelwald on a sledge.
Despite it being their very first time sledding – and perhaps there were a few falls along the way – Esther and Chen say they had a wonderful time.
Here’s a little ‘behind the scenes’ film about how we made this film … the art of keeping a proposal a secret and planning it to perfection for it to be captured on film!
