Derry’s festival of light included some surprise romance at the weekend; a marriage proposal that was projected for all to see!

To secure his girlfriend Kayleigh Clark’s hand in marriage, 30 year-old Tony Carlin arranged for his proposal to be projected in huge letters on Ebrington’s clock tower during one of the Lumiere shows.

Tony, a Project Trainee for Lumiere, had asked organisers Artichoke to help with his big moment. “Artichoke were brilliant and they set it all up for me,” he told the ‘Journal’. “So a very big thanks is due, this wouldn’t have been possible without them.”

“Kayleigh had no idea what I was planning and there were lots of tears. Well, I had kept her waiting for ten years!”

28 year-old wedding photographer Kayleigh says Tony’s proposal was a complete surprise. “All I really remember is crying. It was really romantic. The response we’ve got from Derry people since Sunday has been amazing too.”
