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
