On the 13th September, Ashiel asked his beautiful girlfriend Ramola to marry him!
She said YES!
They are both from Durban and came on holiday to Cape Town for the week. They have been together for two magical years.
Ashiel contacted us, asking for help with setting up the perfect proposal. He told us that Ramola loves the colours lavender and lilac. The couple also loves spending time in the outdoors, enjoy whale watching and wildlife. Ashiel wanted to propose at a beautiful and private area somewhere in nature.
We decided on the 12 Apostles picnic area, which is a hidden gem, nestled just below the mountains and has spectacular views of the ocean. We set the scene and made the picnic area look stunning, with beautiful flowers on the table, a fruit platter and chocolates. With the couple being Hindu, they were in the middle of celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi and Ashiel had asked us to put a gold elephant statue on the table, as it was very symbolic to them.
The couple arrived at the hotel and were lead to their picnic area. Lying on the table was a photo book of their “story”. This book had various numbers on different pages that Ramola had to use to crack the code to open the treasure box. Once she had finally cracked the code and was able to open the treasure box, she read a note that said ‘will you marry me’ and Ashiel got onto one knee to pop the question.
After both their nerves had calmed, they enjoyed a glass of champagne while looking at the gorgeous views over Llandudno. The photographer captured the moment and took a few fun shots of the couple afterwards. The couple spent the night at the hotel and went for a romantic dinner to celebrate their engagement.
Congratulations! Ashiel and Ramola treasure box proposal was stunning. We wish you all the happiness with your future together!
