Secret Proposal at Delaire Graaf Estate

Menzi contacted me in January about capturing his secret proposal.  Menzi and Vuyelwa live in Johannesburg and they were flying down to Cape Town for the weekend.  The day before they were meant to fly, Menzi had heard that his ring might not be ready in time due to the jeweller catching Covid.  The whole weekend was booked and it couldn’t be cancelled.  Later on Friday afternoon I received a call from Menzi to say that the ring would be ready and his friend was flying down to deliver it to him on the Saturday.  What a good friend!

The proposal was happening at Delaire Graaf Restaurant in Stellenbosch.  They were going to have lunch there and we decided it might be better to do the proposal before they eat so that Menzi could relax and enjoy it.  I took my wing lady with so we could act “normal” and managed to set up a table about 3m away from them.  I had to keep an eye on them but not make it obvious that I was staring LOL.  I spotted Menzi taking out the box and keeping it on his lap so she couldn’t see.  He got down on one knee and Vuyelwa was completely shocked and was giggling away, she was so super happy 🙂

It was so fun meeting you both and being able to capture this moment.  Enjoy the pics xx
