Traditional wedding proposals like finding a ring at the bottom of a champagne flute or getting down on one knee after hosting a picnic under the stars are cute and some would say “old-school romantic” but as times change, creative guys (and girls) have started coming up with more and more unique and quirky proposals – sometimes involving family, friends and even hired help to make that big moment as special and memorable as possible.
Airtasker community member Roman Navarro was one such “progressive” suitor who wanted to make his marriage proposal a day that his better half, Leah, would never forget.
After concocting a grand plan with inspiration from a variety of aides (including his mother’s advice), Roman jumped on Airtasker and posted tasks to hire three awesome Airtaskers – Jules, Ria and Cristina to “randomly” walk past his girlfriend Leah as she made her way home after work to Circular Quay in the Sydney CBD.
