12 Apostles picnic proposal

12 Apostles picnic proposal

This wonderful couple got engaged at the 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa. They have asked to keep their identity private, so we are happy to oblige. We have many couples who propose and wish to keep it private, this is due to being online or family or work. We always respect our client’s wishes.

For now, we will explain the mountain picnics at the 12 Apostles. if you can imagine being seated on the foothills of Table Mountain with views of the ocean and Lions head. This magical spot can be booked through us or the hotel and used during the day.

“The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa occupies a dramatic location on the flanks of the Table Mountain National Park, and there’s nowhere better to enjoy a picnic. Guests can enjoy direct access to this remarkable World Heritage Site from the hotel, with marked paths leading through our indigenous gardens and up onto the mountain. Pick up a luxury picnic, thoughtfully prepared by our chefs and filled with tasty picnic fare, and head out onto the trails for an open air adventure”. 

There are a range of picnic options to choose from, they have luxury baskets for couples who wish to indulge and others that are more affordable. You can then add a bottle of bubbly or wine to enjoy onsite.

“A handful of secluded picnic sites within the hotel’s fynbos gardens offer wonderful mountain and ocean views, with plenty of outdoor space and fresh air. Order a bottle of Champagne to toast a proposal,  anniversary or other special celebration against a spectacular sunset backdrop. Our luxury picnics also provide the perfect ambiance for a romantic date night.”

On this particular day, we booked Stanley’s Rock which is the top picnic site on the mountain. The couple got escorted up there to see the frame that said: “will you marry me?”. Jodi, the lovely photographer captured the proposal, followed by a couple’s shoot on the mountain. The views are amazing thus giving the couple the best photos as keepsakes. We always order the picnic food to arrive after the photos are completed, to give the couple time to enjoy nature, the views, the photos, and then indulge in the food.

The weather plays a part at this venue, thus you need to keep an eye on it. Wind or rain can affect the mountain picnic spots and would need to change to an inside venue. To conclude; the 12 Apostles picnic proposal is a great idea, get in touch with us if you wish to book.

Congratulations to a fabulous couple, we wish them all the best on this exciting journey ahead.
