Thank you to all these amazing service providers:
The venue at Zeitz MOCAA, Cape Town
Christiana & Sébastien
Val de Vie Polo Estate, Paarl, South Africa
Christiana and Sébastien knew exactly what they wanted for their big day: a spectacular celebration without limits with their friends and family from all over the world. All guests flew in from abroad and everyone on the guest list were French-speaking (including the bride and groom!). Hundreds of emails, Skype-calls and Whatsapp chats over the course of two months culminated in a dreamy fairy tale wedding on 8th March 2017 at Val de Vie.
THANK YOU to the fantastic service providers who understood our vision of the couple’s dream and helped to create an unforgettable day! Scroll down to see who made up this dream team.
Join us in marvelling over this coordinated wedding proposal in Cape Town. Kuhle first contacted us in early in July, eager for us to help him arrange a romantic and unforgettable proposal to Angiswa. They both live in Johannesburg and Kuhle planned to fly his fiancé-to-be down to Cape Town for a birthday weekend later in July. We knew exactly what to do. With Cape Town caught up in the middle of a freezing and rainy Winter, we turned to the 12 Apostles Hotel, which has the perfect plan B’s in place should the weather be too unfavourable. With the lovely setting and tremendous views of the Atlantic Ocean, it is the most perfect setting for an intimate and private proposal.
The couple spent the weekend at the 12 Apostles, being spoiled from top to toe. Spoils included a helicopter ride from the V&A Waterfront, massages in the privacy of their room and breakfast in bed on Sunday morning.
The plan: As predicted, the Cape Town weather did not play along that well on Saturday morning and their planned private picnic was moved to their room’s balcony with views over the ocean. We arranged a couple shoot for them at the hotel as part of Angiswa’s birthday gift from Kuhle. At the start of the shoot, he bent down on one knee, popped the question with the ring in hand and from looking at the pictures, you can guess what her answer was.
Adele Kloppers, these photo’s are amazing, thank you for being there to capture the moment.
And congratulations to Kuhle and Angiswa – we wish you a happy life together!
We absolutely love it when we are asked to help plan a marriage proposal in South Africa! The options are endless and the first thing to do is find that perfect spot. In this case I think we nailed it! Our dashing groom-to-be, Jonathan… wanted an experience that would be a lasting memory, down to the exact song to be played as he got onto one knee. And it all had to happen on the 31st of December.
Our photographer, Carla from BlueCheri Photography, accompanied the couple on their trip from the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town to the breathtaking Lothian House in Elgin. This a private residence that can be hired for weddings, events… and now proposals. They had the entire property to themselves and as you will see by the pictures, they made good use of it.
As they enjoyed lunch, prepared by a private chef, they were serenaded by Ike Moriz and his band. Just as planned, as dessert was served, Ike sang ‘You Make Me Feel So Young‘ by Frank Sinatra and Jonathan made his move!
Jonathan and Amy were then able to relax a bit and make use of the venue’s jacuzzi, swimming pool and jet skis before being flown back to the waterfront by Cape Town Helicopters.
Thank you to everyone who made this day so special and we wish the newly engaged couple all the blessings in the world. Now for the wedding planning to start!!
