<div> <div>A photograph taken by Jessica Bowe on Friday night has received over a thousand likes on Instagram, and shows a proposal taking place in central Skólavörðustígur in Reykjavík. With the recent heavy snowfall and Christmas decorations in place, the setting just couldn't be more romantic. </div> <div></div> <div>Here is Jessica's Instagram post: </div> </div><p><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/-m8w2hjtt4/" target="_blank">So, this was a special night. I was leaving Bravó after a few happy Friday beers and snapping some pics of the lovely falling snow, with Hallgrímskirkja church in view up Skólavörðustígur, on my usual way home when this couple got engaged on the spot. I gave them a moment and then asked if they would like to have this picture as a memento. The man's hands were trembling as he entered his email address on my phone, and I got some nice hugs of appreciation. Sometimes you're just in the right place at the right time. ❤️ #reykjavik #iceland #magicmoments #luckyshot #hallgrimskirkja #winter #snowfall #arcticromance #love #proposal #happyaccidents #reykjavikloves</a></p><p>A photo posted by JR Bowe (@jrbowe) on Nov 27, 2015 at 4:35pm PST</p>
