Get your hanky ready…
Darren and Daniel got engaged yesterday, on Valentine’s nights in front of the world’s famous Blackpool Tower. The couple, Darren, 30 and Daniel, 18 spent the day at their favourite seaside town, before Darren got down on one knee and proposed to his now fiance.
To celebrate the happy couple’s good news, The Blackpool Tower turned the lights to rainbow colours and put their names in the giant love heart light at the front of the Grade 1 listed building.
Darren, 30, said, “It was a magical evening. We have a strong affinity with Blackpool, it’s where we spent our New Year’s Eve so it only feels right to get down on one knee at our favourite spot in the resort.”
The pair were then treated to an intimate champagne reception at The Blackpool Tower, something they’ve always dreamed of but never been able to do.
Darren added, “I’m so thankful to the team for going out of their way and making this Valentine’s Day even more special.
Daniel and Darren were one of five couples chosen by The Blackpool Tower to have their name blazoned on the side of the iconic Blackpool landmark. Each of the couples was then treated to a special romantic evening at The Blackpool Tower.
Kenny Mew, the general manager at The Blackpool Tower, said: “We are thrilled that we could be on hand to help the happy couple celebrate their engagement. I would like to pass on my congratulations from all the team here.
“We have hundreds of people that come to The Blackpool Tower every year to propose. With over 123 years of history, The Blackpool Tower has such a special place in a lot of peoples’ hearts. You simply can’t find another more romantic venue quite like here anywhere else in the country!”
The Blackpool Tower Eye also offers special engagement packages, perfect for those wanting to make their proposal extra special. The package includes access to The Blackpool Tower Eye as well as a bottle of bubbly, handpicked bunch of roses and chocolates to celebrate.
