A 23-year-old who got engaged at Parklife festival has said she 'can't stop crying' after the event's boss offered to pay for the couple's honeymoon.
Indy Geraghty was one of hundreds of people who ventured to Manchester's Heaton Park for the second day of the festival on Sunday (12 June), but she got a surprise when her boyfriend Myles Goodfellow took the microphone on stage and popped the question.
The couple appeared on stage during Yung Filly's set, where Myles got down on one knee after having made the arrangements weeks earlier.
Indy described the event as a 'complete shock' while speaking to Manchester Evening News afterwards, saying: "When we arrived at Parklife I soon came to realise we were going for a meet and greet with Yung Filly but little did I know that would happen.
"I was completely clueless to it all and as you can see by the pictures and video I couldn’t even speak."
Footage of Indy and Myles getting engaged went viral, and Parklife boss Sacha Lord later got in touch with Indy to offer to cover the cost of the couple's honeymoon.
“I cried very happy tears when Sacha called me," Indy said. "I don’t have a lot of good things happen in my life so for something like this to come along is a huge impact. Myles had arranged it all with Filly’s manager weeks prior.
"I’m still in a lot of shock from yesterday and the amount of attention it’s got has sent me on a rollercoaster of emotions."
The engagement resulted in news articles as well as mixed responses on Twitter, but Indy shared a post afterwards to say she and Myles were ignoring the hurtful comments and embracing the more positive ones.
“I’m so grateful for all the nice posts and lovely comments. They override all the bad ones. I can’t believe it. Reading this article, it has made me so happy and I can’t stop crying," she wrote.
As well as offering to pay for Myles and Indy's honeymoon, Lord has also pledged to give the couple free entry to Parklife for life.
He told Manchester Evening News: "I spoke to Indy as she was driving back to Scotland. She was very upset [about trolls] this morning. You could tell she was. I think what we’ve done is draw a line under it. Don’t read it, it’s the start of your life, crack on and enjoy it.
"This has certainly been a trip they won’t forget anyway. She’s got my number now, her and Myles, she can call me any time, come to any of our events and they’re going to sit down, choose a wedding date and then we’re going to talk about packing them off on holiday.”
Indy has said it would likely be 'a few years' before they can afford their wedding, but she's hopeful they'll be able to do it 'in the next year or two'.
