On Tuesday the 19th of December, Mishaal and Dhrital got engaged!
The couple comes from Centurion and decided to come and spend some time in Cape Town on holiday. They have been together for four years and nine months and met when they were in Primary School. They share a love of music and food.
Mishaal contacted The Perfect Proposal to request some help with organizing his big day. He wanted a simple proposal at a beautiful wine farm in Franschhoek. He had already booked accommodation there, so he just needed us to set up a picnic area with a vegan picnic basket and champagne for them to enjoy, as well as a photographer to take photos while he proposed, and then a couples shoot thereafter.
After looking at a few options from us, Mishaal decided he liked the picnic area at Mont Rochelle for his special day, as it has a lovely grass area where you can see out to Franschhoek, and has a rose garden nearby. A picnic is a great option for a proposal, look at our picnic box.
On the day it rained a bit, but fortunately, by the time Mishaal and Dhrital got to the wine farm in the afternoon, it was sunny. We set up the picnic spot under a tree on the side of the picnic area so they had some shade and a bit of privacy. Dhrital loves purple roses, so we laid out some purple rose petals in the shape of a heart under the ‘Marry Me’ sign next to the picnic spot. We also arranged some greenery and roses around their picnic basket and left a bouquet of purple roses on the picnic blanket for her to take home.
When the couple got to the wine farm, Mishaal led Dhrital towards the picnic spot and knelt down in the rose petal heart to ask her to marry him. She said yes! Lesley captured this special moment with his camera, and then took some great shots of them together near the picnic spot.
Mishaal and his new fiance then sat down to enjoy their picnic and some champagne, just the two of them, before going off to a special dinner in Franschhoek.
It was such a treat to plan and set up this proposal for this special couple, and we wish them all the happiness in their future together!
