Tower Bridge proposal photography, London

Tower Bridge proposal photography in London – Alternative London & Bedfordshire wedding photographer – Jon & Melanie

‘I’m looking to propose to my girlfriend of 3 years on Sunday around 8:15 in the morning by Tower Bridge in London & would love a photographer to capture the very special moment! Is there any chance that you would be available to capture this for me?’

When receiving Jon’s email, my heart fluttered – this was the first proposal that I had been asked to be photographer for & my goodness what an honour to capture this special moment, the start of a couple’s forever!

Jon & Melanie were visiting London from America, on the last leg of a tour around Europe. Every morning on their last day in a city, they would wake early & walk around to take in the sights & the unusual quiet of a place. On their last morning in London, a sunny Sunday morning, Jon planned to propose to Melanie on the banks of the River Thames by Tower Bridge – what a beautiful place for a secret engagement proposal in London! ‘I’ll be the one in the purple shirt’ Jon had told me prior to the day & you wouldn’t believe how many men passed me by that morning in a purple shirt. Suddenly I spied the couple & Jon gave me a sly wink – I pretended to be engrossed in taking photographs of the surrounding architecture as the couple gazed across the river & I was certain Melanie had spied me hiding behind a lamppost! Jon dropped to one knee for the proposal & I heard a gasp of ‘Are you ******* kidding me?!’ as Melanie nodded her response of ‘yes’. This gives me goosebumps to type, which was nothing to the experience of capturing such precious moments for such a lovely couple! I’m sure it’s clear from these photographs how stunned & elated Melanie was to receive & accept Jon’s marriage proposal!

Jon & Melanie, it was a real pleasure to be your Tower Bridge proposal photographer in London & huge Congratulations on your engagement! Nx

If you are planning your secret engagement proposal in London, or anywhere else in the world then I would love to be your photographer & capture your story for you… Please get in touch here. Nx

Hi Natalie,

I absolutely loved your story and photos from Jon and Melanie’s proposal. I am thinking of doing a similar proposal at London Bridge and would love for you to capture the moment (assuming you are available). We will be traveling to London on the 29th of December and leaving on the 31st.

I’d love to talk logistics with you if you are available between those dates.
