When announcing some of the happiest news you’ll get to deliver in your adult life why not do it in the most over the top and ridiculous manner? These people certainly did, and then decided to take a load of professionally made photos in the process. Who knows why you would want to do this, one can only assume it’s a glossier way of boasting to all of your intimate friends.
1. Pre-historic Wonderland
Forever solving the argument of ‘how did the dinosaurs die out’ (they were turned into children’s play equipment) this couple decided to share their announcement in the most absurd way possible. You can only hope this was in a park near their house or that is one hell of an odd location scout.
2. Sitting Awkward
In order to show this couple’s awkwardness they decided to sit really far apart and in really unnatural positions. What part of their relationship this is meant to show isn’t clear, however it does show off the soon-to-be groom’s excellent posture. Maybe that’s why they fell in love.
3. Bigger is Better
The sheer volume of your love could fill a vast amount of space! Which is exactly what this couple were trying to convey in their turbine-hall-esque far shot engagement photo.
4. Pets and Signs
Rope in a confused pet and some signage when announcing your engagement. Not only does it show off your impressive sign-balancing skills it also shows off your budding family. Yes, the pet may be regretting letting you adopt him but on the plus side he looks really cute.
5. Subliminal Humour
Perhaps in an unfortunate turn of events this couple didn’t see the message plastered between them on the garbage cans they were posing on, for some reason. Whether its the conflicting message or the ridiculous poses the couple are standing in this picture definitely qualifies as Over The Top.
6. Run Through a Field of Love
Nothing says lasting love like skipping through a field of joy, holding hands with your beloved. This couple may have been inspired by The Sound of Music or they may have been mid fall, who knows, what is important is they decided to show their engagement by taking a series of over the top photos.
7. Star Crossed Lovers
When you find that special someone and they just so happen to like cosplay just as much as you do announce it to the world by doing a Star Wars themed Engagement shoot. This couple shot the photos in the Santa Cruz mountains, where bikers kept passing them. People kept commenting on how great the couple was. Let your freak flag fly with an awesomely themed Star Wars Engagement announcement.
8. Take a trip down the rabbit hole
If you feel as if your wedding plans are spiralling out of control then regain the balance by taking your engagement photos in the imagined world of Alice in Wonderland. The over the top costumes and wonderfully imagined set make for a truly unique announcement, all the while reliving one of your favourite books from childhood.
9. Slam Dunk
If fantasy and role-playing isn’t your thing then take to the courts. This couple both had a passion for basketball and decided to announce their engagement…on a basketball. Some would question the romance of this, however, the couple did go all out and bought custom printed jerseys and they also bought new pairs of Jordans. Definitely over the top.
10. Zombie Invasion
Perhaps the most survivalistic of the list is this engagement announcement made with a Zombie theme. Yes, you heard, a zombie theme. Shout your love from the rooftops to all your friends, whilst fighting off a hoard of the undead. You may enjoy zombie films, but is your engagement the time to share this with everyone? Apparently so.
