The Lowry Hotel Manchester has rolled out ‘proposal training’ for its staff ahead of the peak Valentine’s Day proposal season.
The five-star hotel hosts around 300 proposals, weddings and anniversaries every year, making it one of the most romantic hotels in Manchester and, a hotspot for those popping the question in its luxury surroundings.
Food and Beverage Manager, Daniel Thompson, has been delivering bespoke training for the hotel’s staff, which included guidance from a professional photographer on how to capture the moment for loved-up couples using a mobile phone. Staff were provided with a masterclass on how to use lighting and angles to guarantee guests’ special moments are captured in full and advice on how to help choreograph the nerve-wracking question popping.
The training also highlighted which tables in the bar and the restaurant are most suited to engagements due to their privacy and romantic lighting. The team were also coached on how to calm any pre-proposal nerves by offering their discretion, advice and encouragement to guests.
