A perfect yacht proposal
On the 8th of April 2021, Chinedum and Abidemi got engaged!
It was a magical day in Cape Town, the sun was shining, the ocean sparkling with clear blue skies.
Chinedum contacted us to help plan his perfect proposal. He had booked this fabulous yacht which would leave from the V&A Waterfront and go for a scenic cruise around the harbour.
Abidemi was under the impression she was there to celebrate her birthday. So we decorated the boat with red balloons and even brought a birthday cake.
As the main surprise, we had brought two BIG gift boxes, the one was filled with gifts for her birthday. We love adding personal items for special occasions. The second box, which was gold glitter, had a printed “marry me” sign hidden inside. We also ordered the biggest bunch of red roses you can imagine.
On the day, the couple arrived and as it was a birthday celebration, Chinedum invited some friends. They all boarded the yacht and started the cruise. We had a hidden photographer on board who was there to take photos throughout the cruise. He pretended to be part of the Princess Skye yacht team. Our photographers are not just brilliant at taking photos but are very skilled actors. The number of times they have to pretend to be a tour guide or work at a hotel is endless. We love setting the scene to make it look at real as possible.
About halfway through the cruise, Chinedum asked Abidemi to join him at the front of the boat. Here the crew brought the boxes for her to open. After she opened the glitter box, the game was over and the penny dropped, this was all planned for her perfect proposal!! She was SO surprised and loved every minute of the afternoon. #shesaidyes
After the proposal, they popped bubbly and joined their friends in celebrations. Lesley captured these magical memories on film. It was such a special day and our team did a fabulous job in putting the plan in place.
Congratulations to the happy couple and we hope all their dreams come true. It really was a perfect yacht proposal.
