On the 3rd December 2015 Craig and Clarissa had a romantic treasure box proposal at Beau Constantia.
Craig approached us about 6 months before the date to plan his “perfect proposal” we love the way he was very organized and wanted it planned to perfection. His words…”I want my proposal to be a complete surprise; she must not suspect anything at all. I also want it to be something unique and something that would be unexpected and memorable for the rest of our lives.” The day should include wine tasting, the proposal at a wine farm and a photographer. The last idea was to place the ring in a treasure box that we found for them and an empty ring box would be open inside. When Clarissa opened the box, Craig would be on one knee behind her. The plan was set in motion and the venue finally chosen, Beau Constantia. We rented out a private room for them. They had a musician singing their favorite songs, a photographer capturing the moment and the treasure box on the table.
On the day, it was perfect weather and blue skies. They went in a private shuttle and toured the Constantia wine farms. Their last stop was the proposal venue, Beau Constantia. The views from Beau Constantia are incredible so the idea was to have a romantic dinner for two after the proposal. They stayed all night drinking Moet and admiring the views. Clarissa said YES of course, it was a stunning ‘treasure box’ proposal.
Clarissa loves all the girly things in the world, such as shopping, fashion, make-up and nails. As a gift we got a manicure and nail polish from Craig. A lovely added surprise for her to show off that diamond ring.
We wish them the best of luck for a happy future together. We loved making their perfect treasure box proposal come true!
