She stood in matching strappy sandals and kept the cool night air out with a leather jacket while she carried a small black handbag.
Liam displayed his fashion flair in a patterned gold shirt that he left unbuttoned enough to reveal his bare chest and gold medallion.
The singer combined his shirt with cuffs with slim black trousers and rounded off his chic ensemble with a pair of brown Chelsea boots.
The news of their involvement has largely remained under wraps as the grand proposal came during the lockdown.

It wasn't until September 2019 that Liam spoke publicly about his blooming romance and promoted his single Stack It Up.
During an appearance at the Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, he said, "We're pretty happy right now. I've just got to the point where I'm bothered or not.
"It's not worth my luck. I just go out and do what I want. I have nothing to hide."

The couple have been inseparable since their relationship was revealed last September but have kept things decidedly aloof.
In October, Liam spoke about his tumultuous love life with MTV News, revealing that "many girls" have broken his heart in the past, but said Maya "completely" had his back.
"Honestly with love, I guess you don't really understand until it gives you this prick, it took a long time for me," Liam said.
“Something really hurt me and it made me appreciate love and people much more for the longest time. Living such an exposed life made dating really difficult.
"I found someone who is really my best friend, she is just so relaxed about everything and someone who has their backs with everything is just the wildest."
