Extraordinary Ways to Pop the Question in Malta and Gozo

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, the team at I DO KNOT are buzzing with ideas how to plan a romantic and unforgettable surprise marriage proposal which would score you top points and give you all the credit with your better half.  We’ve already had the privilege of being part of a love story and you can read all about it here

Additionally, we have these other ideas to share with you…

On the sea: Rent a speedboat or hire a boat with a skipper and head for a day out at sea – preferably by the Blue Lagoon in Comino, where the crystal-clear waters will help add to the romance. Pop open a bottle of champagne, have some nibbles at the ready, and start chatting. Then, when the other person least expects it, go down on one knee and ask them to marry you.

Below the surface: There are many diving schools in Malta that would be happy to help you ask your significant other for their hand in marriage. Ask them to take you to the Santa Maria Caves in Comino or the Blue Hole in Dwejra, Gozo – always taking into consideration your level of expertise in diving – and, while there, turn around and show him or her the ring. Just make sure it’s tied to something so it won’t float away.

Mdina by night: Many may see this as a cliché – but like all other clichés, it’s only so because it actually works. Malta’s Silent City by night is one of the most magical and romantic places on the islands, and a stroll down its narrow, winding lanes will definitely get both of you in mood for love!


The Weekend Break: Malta and Gozo are dotted with five-star hotels, and most of them are located in very scenic areas. Why not whisk your other half to a luxury hotel and ask the Customer Relations Manager to add the ring to your first breakfast-in-bed tray? The rest of the time can be spent on sandy beaches, planning out the rest of your lives together.

The Marketplace: Places like Marsaxlokk, Birgu and Rabat, Gozo, are renowned for their markets – and while it may not seem like the traditional place to propose, if you plan your day properly, it can be the ultimate place to truly surprise them. The trick is to add a romantic meal after your tour of the market, and the rest will work itself out.

  • Hi Matthew, Mauro and Petra, Just wanted to say Thank You for the amazing work you did with Ramis and Adriels wedding. I wrote with Rami a bit in the last days and he said at least a couple of times that it was perfect :) Thank you also for handling all print-related stuff and going the extra mile with the decoration. Wish I could have been there to see it. Really happy you made them happy! :) Thank you & many greetings from Berlin, Natalie

  • Firstly, I just wanted to say how lovely it was meeting you, Mauro and the rest of your team and to thank you. Both Andre and I were so impressed with everything you did for Annez and Gio's beautiful wedding on the Salt Pans in Gozo - every detail was taken care of so thoughtfully and we were absolutely blown away by the venue, and of course how it was setup and dressed for their wedding day! It was simply breath-taking and that light (honestly, Andre and I could not get enough of it, which you may have noticed!!). You and your team took such good care of Annez, Gio and the wedding party and nothing was too much trouble. I especially liked your approach to the bride as its very similar to my own (that you are present and in the background, never rushing or stressing the bride or the bridal party). And thank you also for driving me to the Salt Pans - it certainly made it less stressful for me and I really appreciate that! As as for the venue at night - now that really had the 'wow' factor - absolutely magical, both for the guests and the lenses on our cameras :-)

  • Excellent. Nothing but Praise for Petra, Mauro and all the team at I DO KNOT. We celebrated our ruby wedding anniversary in Malta and I DO KNOT arranged everything for us and our 18 guests from Ireland and England. Such hard work and professionalism provided us with a unique 're proposal event' full church service, hotel, entertainment events etc. The I DO KNOT team were there for us, for all the whole 2 weeks and made it such a wonderful event that will never be forgot by the whole party. Feel free to ask them for more details of our functions they provided and you will see exactly how good they are and what such nice people they are and clearly a credit to the people of Malta. They deserve the awards they have achieved so far and Im sure there will be many more.

  • I would recommend Petra and her "I Do Knot" team to everyone! As getting married in Malta was a really last minute decision, Petra was super fast in providing us with best options and deals! I reached out to few companies, but Petra was outstanding and stood out right away! Could not be more thankful. And this comes from a wedding planner herself. If I trusted our day to her, anyone can!
