Winners To Propose Jan. 18-30, In Abaco, Exuma, Nassau and Paradise Islands

Four winners have been selected from the recent “Say Yes” Marriage Proposal contest, which ended December 15, 2017 and was organized by The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation (BMOTA) in conjunction with Paparazzi Proposals of New York.  More than 300 grooms from throughout the United States of America submitted entries into the six weeks social media contest, with hopes of winning a surprise marriage proposal and four days three nights stay at any of four islands in The Bahamas:  Abaco, Exuma, Nassau or Paradise Island.

The winners, who were selected from a panel of qualified judges, have been notified but will be named after their proposal on February 14, 2018.

The marriage proposals are expected to take place January 18-21, 2018 at the Grand Hyatt Resort at Baha Mar in Nassau, January 20-23, the Warwick Hotel on Paradise Island January 23-26, Lumina Resort in Exuma and at the Hope Town Harbour Lodge in Abaco, January 26-30, 2018.

According to Freda Malcolm, Director of Romance at the BMOTA, “The Bahamas are known the world over for its romance, tranquility and unspoiled beauty and we are just eager to share our unique product with these incredible winners.  All of them can expect to experience complete romance bliss, inclusive of luxurious beachfront accommodations, private dinners, indigenous flowers, sparkling champagne toasts, authentic and intimate settings to the personal and memorable romantic proposals that are planned”.

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with the BMOTA,” said James Ambler, CEO of Paparazzi Proposal. 

“We are really excited about showcasing the variety and beauty of the Islands in The Bahamas and the diverse proposals the couples will experience.  It has been fun providing and helping the winners plan their dream marriage proposal, and we cannot wait to capture it on film,” he said.

Also partnering with the BMOTA on this initiative is Froggies Out Islands Adventures.

Named the World’s Leading Wedding Destination by World Travel Awards in 2015, the Islands of The Bahamas also held previously, three world wide wedding promotions, called “16 Islands, 16 Weddings One Priceless Day Ceremonies” for couples in Europe, the USA and Canada in 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively.
