Joburg Garden Picnic Proposal
On the 10th April 2021, Shiven asked Letatia to marry him and she said yes! It was a beautiful Autumn’s day at a hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg.
Shiven first contacted us looking for a romantic picnic proposal for his partner, Letatia. We knew exactly what to offer him! So we set up this beautiful private picnic at Ten Bompas Hotel. Her favourite colour is teal and we think the colours all worked together so nicely. We also hung pictures of the two of them as bunting and set up a low table for them to enjoy the picnic on. The food looked so delicious! We added dried flowers like bunny tails and pampas grass in the colour scheme too. And lastly, a little Marry Me sign so as to try to keep the proposal a surprise until the last minute.
The two arrived for lunch under the pretence that it was just a casual weekend lunch. We pretended to work for the hotel and led them to their picnic site. The photographer, Monica Stewart, pretended to be a guest of the hotel relaxing by the pool so that she could sneakily capture the proposal before approaching the couple. Letatia had no idea what was coming (and we think she looked gorgeous in her summer outfit and hat)! She was so surprised, totally caught off guard and said a resounding YES! It was a very sweet proposal to witness.
The two then had a couples shoot around the private hotel grounds and they looked so happy and in love. They then enjoyed a delicious picnic and some bubbly while phoning their friends and celebrating! All round, it was a wonderful day and Shiven was so happy that he could surprise Letatia like this.
We wish them every happiness going forward.
