@petalpetal:  This is the risk you run with a public proposal, I suppose!

 

I would look into having that audio removed and the audio you want enhanced. I have to believe there is a way to do that.

that sucks but i guess that’s the risk one takes when you are in a public place.  at least you have the video.  that’s more than more of us have.

@petalpetal:  

 

 Can you take it to a sound engineer or someone who knows how to edit that kind of media, and ask if it’s possible to have their comments edited out?

I’m sorry this happened to you. They probably had no idea their voices were being recorded. It sounds like you’re talking about a very public place (famous landmark, etc.) and since your FI had flower petals strewn around, with a camera on a tripod, unfortunately that attracts attention. In this day and age, you just never know what idiot might walk up or what flaky thing they might do.

It could have been worse.  Think of all the times there are live news broadcasts, and people hang out next to the reporters and make faces in the background… imagine if someone had done that to you while your FI was proposing!

I’m sorry this happened to you but your fiance proposed in a public space.  If you wanted privacy, he should have proposed in a private space.  I’m sure they had no idea a camera was recording and picking up their remarks.

I think if you take it a professional editor, they should be able to isolate and delete that particular conversation. You could always ask – all they can say is no! But I’m sure I’ve seen this be done before. Good luck.

@petalpetal:  Unfortunately (but rightly) you can’t control what other people say in a public place. I suggest you take the sound out entirely and replace it with music. You won’t hear what is said, but you’ll have video of your proposal. That’s something 99% of girls don’t have. Consider yourself lucky for having the video, not unlucky for having the sound ruined. (Not to mention a beautiful proposal!)

And congratulations!

I agree with the PP’s – if you take it to an audio engineer they can most likely isolate the sounds and remove the audio you don’t want.  I have friends who can work miracles with this type of stuff and these days with digital it’s generally pretty easy

Congratulations on your engagement!  Obviously in a public place you can’t control what people do, but it’d be nice if people weren’t such assholes!  Hopefully you can find someone skillful enough to get their voices out!

@petalpetal:  I was so ill with cancer when my H proposed to me that I do not even remember it. I just take his word that I said yes.

Personally, and I know this will be harsh, i think you should be greatful that you can remember it and that you have a video.

@petalpetal:  Of course you should expect respectfullness.  There is no excuse for rude behavior.  However, in this day and age, you never know what people will do or say.  Any time you have a private moment in a public space you have a risk of people acting like fools.  That’s all I was trying to say.

ohh first world problems! That’s nice you have a video, and all that matters at the end of the day is you’re marrying the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. Happy planning!
