Latitude at Henham Park, between Beccles and Southwold, the festival of love for one happy couple
The Latitude Festival has become a festival of love for one happy couple today after a marriage proposal took place in front of their favourite band.
Simon Townsend, 30, and Sara McCorquodale, 28, both from Ipswich, have known each other for seven years and rekindled their love last year at the festival at Henham Park, between Beccles and Southwold.
Mr Townsend decided to take the plunge and ask Miss McCorquodale to marry him describing her as 'the best girlfriend in the world'.
The NHS clinical technologist got down on one knee in front of a small crowd of people and the band Admiral Fallow, who performed their acoustic song Four Bulbs for the couple.
Mr Townsend said: 'I'm lucky to have her. She is perfect. I decided to propose to her here today because we love Latitude and we love festivals.'
