I recently had a friend ask me where a good place would be to propose in London and as we talked through some options, I thought you know what this could make a good blog post.
With wedding season in full swing and wannabe brides dreaming about that two piece mermaid wedding gown from www.pronovias.com, alongside some no doubt very dashing grooms planning their proposals, here are the best places to propose in London that could put a ring on it.
It doesn’t get more London than the London Eye itself, with a skyline view over the City it could be the perfect place to ask that special someone to marry you. They even offer a proposal package which gives you your own capsule, bottle of champagne, luxury box of chocolates as well as your own private host and photographer or if you have something particular in mind their organisers can help you plan the perfect bespoke proposal.
GREENWICH ROYAL OBSERVATORY
The Royal Observatory in Greenwich has the perfect romantic place to propose, the Peter Harrison Planetarium. Remember that romantic date from Friends with Ross and Rachel? Then why not look into the stars by booking out the venue just for the two of you. The planetarium has it all covered and will even give you VIP passes to keep your secret mission undercover. The astronomer will begin the show as normal and then let you take over for the main event.
Why not get a real view of the stars over London, with a visit to the top of the Shard for that romantic proposal at night. The View from The Shard offers their own unique proposal package which will give you an exclusive 30 minute hire of the viewing deck, a private area decorated with rose petals and candles, a personalised soundtrack, a dedicated team on hand as well as artisan chocolates and a bottle of champagne to celebrate the special moment.
Where could be better to propose than in one of London’s best restaurants. Clos Maggiore is frequently listed as London’s most romantic restaurant and it’s easy to see why with its canopy of white blossom, sparkling fairy lights and candlelit tables. The French cuisine restaurant has the perfect backdrop, book a table for two in the courtyard conservatory and enjoy a stunning meal before you pop the question.
A fun place in London to propose could be the London aquarium. The aquarium offers the couple exclusive access to the aquarium, help from the divers who will capture that movie moment and will have a ‘Will you marry me?” sign in the ocean display to help you surprise your other half. Their proposal package also has a half bottle of champagne and a photo to capture the magical moment.
