Oxford Flashmob Proposal

Francisco approached my good friend Chris from Oxford Media Factory to film him proposing to his girlfriend Ana, he wanted to do a flashmob proposal but something a little different – Chris immediately got me involved and the project grew and grew from our first meeting back in October.

I’ve always wanted to organise a flashmob and because Francisco was looking to do something different I was given a free reign to go crazy with ideas.  As a couple Francisco and Ana often wander around Oxford at the weekend watching the local busking talents in the High Street so we decided to create a Buskers Event set in the Oxford Castle on 22nd February (the couple’s 6th anniversary) to draw in the crowds for our unsuspecting audience.

On the day we had a wide range of talent including singers, street dancers, jugglers, bubble art, harps, saxophones and ukuleles!

When Francisco & Ana entered the Oxford Castle, Ana was given a red heart balloon which helped everyone working on the project to know who she was – it is really sweet to see the balloon making its way through the Castle, she had no idea that is was all a plant!

Raw Diva were the fabulous dance group that worked so hard to choreograph the dance routine and train Francisco – once we had a plan in place they rehearsed with him for three weeks prior to the proposal while he told Ana he was at the gym, he was also filming a behind the scenes video in which he kept apologising to Ana for lying to her about where he was!

The dancers were casually mingling with the crowds watching the buskers and once FranAna (my new nickname for them) reached the back courtyard the team members were anxiously waiting for my cue to begin the flashmob.
