On Friday the 15th of March 2019, Christiaan asked the love of his life to marry him, and she said ‘Yes’!
Christiaan and Angelique came down to Cape Town from Johannesburg for the weekend and he decided this was the weekend he wanted to ask her to marry him. This special couple are high school sweethearts and have been together for seven years. They share a love of art, movies, literature and theatre.
As Christiaan had already booked their stay at the Lagoon Beach Hotel, he wanted to propose to Angelique on the Milnerton Beach which has a beautiful view of Table Mountain, as well as a stunning view over the ocean. He wanted a picnic set-up with blankets and pillows as well as bubbly and a Marry Me sign, which we set up in the middle of the beach so the couple could enjoy the views. Angelique loves roses, so we sprinkled some beautiful red rose petals over the blanket to add that special romantic feeling.
Christiaan arrived first as he wanted to surprise Angelique. She was out with her friend, and Christiaan had organised with the friend to bring her to the beach just after he got there. About 20 minutes after he arrived, Angelique and her friend came down to the beach for a ‘walk’. Her friend led her to the place where Christiaan was waiting next to their special set- up and he got down on one knee and popped the question! The photographer captured this special moment and then the couple enjoyed a fun photo shoot on the beach before going out for dinner to celebrate the occasion.
Chris and Angelique sunset proposal was so special. We wish them all the best in their future together!
