About Us

Romance Engineers

The Romance Engineers is the Romance Specialist Company, a company set up to help people be more romantic and to create and capture special moments and romantic experiences.


Our Mission

Our mission is to empower Romance Superheroes and make romance cool and accessible to all.  We believe that anyone can be romantic - sometimes people just need a bit of help.  We are here to provide that help by supporting our clients and enabling them to carry out romantic gestures and proposals.   The notion that someone isn't the Romantic type doesn't mean they are incapable of romance - it usually just means they don't know where to start, they don’t have enough time or they might just be shy.  We want to help people overcome these obstacles and step out of their comfort zone so they can show their other half how much they mean to them without worrying about what other people might say. This is true bravery - the stuff that heroes are made of!
Gary & Una are a very romantic and happy couple who got married in March 2017. Gary has always been a romantic. After proposing to Una at the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, and planning a wedding in sunny Tenerife, Gary and Una found themselves almost falling into the Romance business as friends and family were consulting them for advice on weddings & proposals on a regular basis.
