Just like choosing the perfect wedding photographer, deciding where and how to propose is one daunting task. From the location to your proposal style, there’s a lot to consider before getting down on one knee.
Showing your partner how special they are to you at that moment is crucial, so take the time to plan something that reflects your relationship by adding personal touches. Think about taking them somewhere nostalgic, like where you had your first date or bring along some photos that show the two of you in the different stages of your relationship.
West Yorkshire offers so many stunning locations to pop the questions that ROX Diamonds & Thrills have created a guide to help plan the perfect Leeds proposal. Whether that involves taking a stroll through enchanting historical sites like Kirkstall Abbey or dining in one of Leeds’s top restaurants, ROX’s interactive map features the city's most romantic hot spots and insider tips - allowing you to plan the proposal of their dreams.
A couple of my personal favourites spots in Leeds for a proposal are:
Victoria Leeds, 107-111 Briggate, Leeds, LS1 6AZ

Leeds's Harvey Nichols is the ultimate destination for all things high-end and luxurious. Whether you're looking to do a spot of clothes shopping, find a new beauty product or enjoy a three-course meal, there’s something for everyone. Situated in the historic Victoria Quarter, the store was the second Harvey Nichols branch to open in the UK.
Tip: “To prepare for the big proposal, make your way up to the Fourth Floor Bar to recreate your favourites with a cocktail masterclass.”
