bEST SPOTS IN bUDAPEST TO PROPOSE
You found the love of your life and now it’s time to pop the big question! Choose your location carefully, to make your proposal exciting and memorable. Usually the location is a reflection of how strong your love is and how happy you are on this journey together. Some grooms chose the place where they had their first date as the perfect spot for a surprise marriage proposal. Perhaps it could be also the most romantic place that you can think of . If you are all abouting travelling and discovering interesting new places, then maybe Budapest is the right choice! Popping the question in an unforgettable destination like this city is a sure way to seal the deal and come home with beautiful photographs as a souvenir to be cherished for life. The main and obvious choice to propose is the Fisherman’s Bastion, that forms part of the Buda Castle District on top of the hill. Fisherman’s Bastion or as is knows to the locals “halászbástya” is truly a princess style mini castle with white domes from the Gothic and Neo Romanesque era situated next to magnificent and majestic Matthias Church. Finding a little private spot can be a bit tricky as this place is very popular amongst the tourists, however if you come early mornings or late afternoon and early evenings you can get lucky. Plus during these hours we can get the best lighting for the photographs. Lucky the Buda Castle offers so many charming streets, little fountains, marble statues, hidden away gardens worth discovering. To photograph your own proposal is risky and not really recommended. What if you don’t get the photos or the angles right and your cherished photographs come out all blurry? Its better to invest a little more time and effort into the planning and importantly chose a skilled photographer who will accommodate your special request and pays attention to details. So one thing less to worry about, when you are already so nervous and excited. An attentive and professional photographer can also help you pick the right spot, the right moment and also help you with accessorising your special moment with flowers, champagne to add a bit more glamor and romance to the surprise proposal. Its always a good idea to have the photographer follow you around in disguise and take a few photos before during and after. Having a good few professional photographs after the proposal is a must! The photographer will assist you with how to pose, capturing candid moments. After all you will be in the best mood so that will show on your pictures! Other noteworthy spots around Budapest to get engaged at are the City Park, or “Varosliget”, Normafa if you are a nature enthusiast or then perhaps in front of the St Stephen’s Basilica.
