Leslie and Shonal Helicopter Picnic Proposal

Leslie and Shonal Helicopter Picnic Proposal

On the 15th February, Leslie asked Shonal to marry him and she said YES!

Leslie first contacted us in early January requesting more information about a helicopter proposal. We have some wonderful helicopter trips to offer in Johannesburg and he chose our 20 minute helicopter flight that lands at a lovely 5 star hotel in Magaliesberg/Muldersdrift areas for a picnic for two.

They arrived at the aero-base in the morning and Shonal had no idea what they were doing or where they were going – can you imagine how excited she was to climb aboard a R44 helicopter! And off they went to the beautiful Kloofzicht Lodge and Spa. The lodge has some animals (buck, zebra etc) and so they could spot some animals from the air before landing.

Our secret photographer, Minisha, was hiding in the bushes to capture them getting off the helicopter. Shonal was then blindfolded and led to their picnic site. We had framed pictures of them, décor matching her favourite colours, and a big Marry Me sign set up next to a peaceful dam. When her blindfold was removed, Shonal was so surprised.

Leslie got down on one knee and asked her to spend forever with him and she said yes! Minisha then approached them to get some lovely couple shots of them which are perfect to use for their Save The Date. They then enjoyed a lovely picnic and celebrated in private with some non-alcoholic bubbly. They then climbed back on the helicopter for their scenic trip back to the aero-base.

Leslie and Shonal Helicopter Picnic Proposal was stunning! We loved organising this engagement for them and they were so appreciative of everything that was done. We love that Shonal was so surprised and just willingly allowed us to blindfold her.
