What’s a man to do when his future wife
is one of PANDORA’s biggest fans?
Propose to her with a PANDORA ring,
of course! But Andrés took things one
step further, and enlisted the help of
PANDORA Spain to create a unique and
unforgettable proposal to his future bride.
The couple met three years ago at a school where
Andrés was working as a teacher, and where Ana
was on a teaching placement. Their love grew, and
Ana knew that someday Andrés would propose. But
the way in which he did sowas totally unexpected.
With the stage set for an incredible proposal
– under the guise of shooting a video about Ana’s
love for PANDORA, the couple headed to Madrid
for a weekend getaway. And came home with a
heartwarming love story to cherish and share
for years to come.
During a walk through the city, they see a video
of an old man who tells his love story – about
how he met his wife and the beautiful life they
share. What Ana didn’t know was that the old
man was Andrés, transformed by a team of
special effects makeup artists to year 2050.

A CHILDHOOD DREAM
DID YOU EVER DAYDREAM ABOUT YOUR
FUTURE MARRIAGE PROPOSAL WHEN YOU
WERE A GIRL?
“The moment in time when someone asks you to marry them is something you are going to remember all your life. I used to daydream about how it might be – perhaps it would happen during a romantic meal, on the beach or on a surprise trip to some romantic city.”
AND HOW DID YOU THINK ANDRÉS WOULD PROPOSE TO YOU?
“I imagined it would happen on a summer’s night in Huelva; on the beach at sunset, to the sound of the waves lapping the shore and to the heat of the setting sun on our backs.”
HOW DO YOU ENVISAGE YOUR WEDDING?
“I can see it being a beautiful day where we’ll be surrounded by our friends and family, people who will join us to share an occasion that is really important for any woman and for any couple.”
THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM
HOW DID YOU FEEL THE DAY BEFORE YOUR PROPOSAL?
I was supposed to film a video for PANDORA so
was incredibly nervous, and I couldn’t stop
thinking about the moment when I would be appearing in front of the camera.
DID YOU EVER SUSPECT THAT THE WEEKEND WOULD END LIKE THIS?
There was no way I could have imagined the weekend would end the way it did. After all, I was completely nervous about the fact that we were filming a video for PANDORA, and had no idea that he would propose to me.
LOOKING BACK, WHAT KIND OF MOOD WAS ANDRÉS IN BEFORE THE DAY OF THE PROPOSAL? DID YOU NOTICE ANYTHING STRANGE ABOUT HIM?
That day, Andrés was a little more serious and nervous than usual. I put it down to the camera crew; that he didn’t particularly like being filmed. I was wrong, as it turned out!”
WHAT WENT THROUGH YOUR MIND WHEN YOU SAW THE MAN ON THE SCREEN – AND WHEN YOU REALISED IT WAS ANDRÉS?
To begin with, I was very nervous. There were so many people in the street waiting for us and I had no idea why they were there. When I saw the old man on the screen, it was very difficult to tell who he was from his appearance. But I recognised him by his voice.”
HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN ANDRÉS KNELT DOWN TO PROPOSE?
When the video ended, I noticed that Andrés had knelt down and took an engagement ring
out of his pocket. I couldn’t believe what was happening; it was incredible and really exciting. As soon as the video started, I was crying with all the emotion. It’s something I will remember all my life.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ANDRÉS AND HOW HE MAKES YOU FEEL.
I’m incredibly happy when I’m with Andrés. I feel really good with him by my side. He’s there for me in every way, and always looks after me. He also does lots of little things to show me that he really loves me. I break into a huge grin when I think about the fact that we’re getting married – as there’s no one better than him I could spend the rest of my life with.
HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU FOUND OUT THAT PANDORA HELPED ANDRÉS TO MAKE THIS MOMENT A REALITY?
I still can’t quite believe it! I can’t even begin
to imagine how PANDORA managed to make
it happen – this is any couple’s dream and they made it come true for us. We will remember this moment for the rest of our lives and are eternally grateful to PANDORA for creating such a beautiful proposal story for us.
