Photographer looking for story behind magic moment at Brighton Bandstand

The Argus: Photographer looking for story behind magic moment at Brighton Bandstand Photographer looking for story behind magic moment at Brighton Bandstand

A teacher is trying to track down a couple after he unexpectedly captured the moment they got engaged.

Richard Enticknap, 30, was taking a stroll along Brighton’s seafront waiting for the sun to set to capture some twilight shots when he spotted a man proposing to his partner under Brighton Bandstand.

The Cedar Centre teacher, who spotted the couple on Wednesday evening, said: “There were lots of people coming and going but then I spotted this couple together and saw the proposal and took a quick shot.

“They were hugging for a long time and kissing, but I wanted to speak to them after they were finished.

“When they left I must’ve been distracted – on my phone probably – so I missed them unfortunately.

“I proposed to my wife a few years ago and if someone had taken a photo while I was doing it I would have loved a copy of the image.”

The keen photographer has shared the image on Facebook but is hoping The Argus’ readers will be able to help unite the couple with this unique picture.

If you are the couple photographed by Richard or know who they might be, contact Gareth Davies on 01273 544547.

Is the image definitive of a proposal? I bit presumptuous of either the photographer or the Schmargus.

A lovely photo regardless of whether it is under or on the bandstand or whether it is a proposal or not.

As he said, he saw the proposal and took a quick shot. A proposal should be fairly easy to spot given the reactions of both parties (hopefully good reactions!)

Great picture!

I got engaged at the band stand nearly 3 years ago now and was lucky enough to get some wedding day photos there. Would have been lovely to have an engagement photo like this as well!

Looks like a storm brewing in the background. Probably a sign of their future together!

“I proposed to my wife a few years ago"

Why would you propose to your wife? Unless he was proposing a divorce or course.
