Morning lovers! We’re excited to share some beautiful romantic moments from Brenda and Ranti’s surprise marriage proposal with y’all today, and y’all going to love it.
The picturesque images were captured by ENITAN Photography, and Brenda looked every inch a leading lady in her wrapped black sequin dress, while the groom-to-be, Ranti isn’t far behind. We are such fans of his luxe wine velvet jacket with matching tie and shoes, so debonair!
This romantic marriage proposal was every inch a beautiful surprise, as the groom-to-be, Ranti got a top UK magazine involved, how cool right? Brenda and her best friend Paloma, were invited Black Hair & Beauty Magazine for a photoshoot and interview to share their experiences as make up artist and also to expose black Mua’s in the UK. Knowing how passionate Brenda is about her job as a Makeup artist, and been a spiritual person, who understands the power of prayers, she and her best friend fasted and prayed for the magazine spread to be a life changing, which it did of course albeit a different route. Congrats you two, wishing you both a beautiful life in together.
See all the lovely photos from this romantic proposal below, and read the proposal story as narrated by the bride. Be inspired!

Can you imagine my excitement when Black hair and beauty magazine got in touch with my best friend Paloma and invited us both to a two page spread photo shoot with us sharing our experiences as make up artist and also to expose black Mua’s in the UK. Paloma knows how passionate I am about make up and I was happy she chose me to come on the shoot with her. We prayed and even considered fasting because we wanted this two page spread photo shoot to be life changing. As we got closer to the date, she related all the information back to me via email. The email included a call sheet, the time, location and outfits. We were asked to dress casual for the first part of the photoshoot, the second half of the shoot is where we would be interviewed, so Black hair and beauty mag asked us to dress elegant in a nice evening wear which suited the scene.
When I got the shoot I was warmly welcomed by the studio owner, he took me straight upstairs to the first studio where I made myself comfortable and rehearsed my answers for the questions we would be asked in the interview, I was nervous whilst I patiently waited for Paloma to arrive. As soon as she walked in we started getting ready, she did my make up and we got dressed ready for the photographer. I was shocked when he asked to take shots of me first! In my head I was thinking, oh no this is Paloma’s photoshoot but I went along with it and it was a wrap for the first half. We had 10mins to get changed into our evening wear for the interview which was in the studio downstairs, we fixed our hair and make up told each other we looked lit! And we were ready to go! The photographer led us downstairs to the next room and as we got there Paloma stood behind me and nudged me to open the door.
As I opened the door I heard my favourite love song playing in the background and I stood frozen in utter amazement and surprise at the button of a candle lit trail that led to a big heart full of red and gold rose petals with the love of my life Ranti, standing in the middle of it waiting for me to walk into his arms, I began to walk towards him with tears in my eyes, as I got closer to him he stretched his arms out to hold me and we danced and lost ourselves in the moment as he told me he wants to spend the rest of his life with me before getting on one knee and asking me to marry him!!! That was the only question I was asked that day Lol as there was no black hair and beauty mag interview!! Ranti set the WHOLE thing up!! And wait … it didn’t end there. He said he wanted the two of us to have a private romantic dinner. As we got to the restaurant I walked into a room full with family and friends screaming SURPRISE while holding cameras and phones up, of course I burst into tears again!! Tears of joy! THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!
