On the 22nd July 2015 Marc and Candice got engaged.
Marc from the beginning knew exactly what Candice would love! He wanted to find that perfect gazebo in a garden and fill it with her favorite flowers. The one he loved most was the gazebo at Boschendal in Franschhoek. Its a really beautiful love story that they share… she is South African and he is from Switzerland. She is now moving countries to be with him and start a new life together. A perfect gazebo proposal would show how much he loves her!
On the day of the proposal we were very excited, the gazebo was to be filled with lilies as these are her favorite. We used lots of petals and candles that lit up the entrance. The gazebo is right next to the lake and has lovely views of the gardens and surrounding mountains. On arrival, their favorite song played while Marc took Candice’s hand and asked her to dance. The song was: Everyone’s got something by Perrin Lamb, oh my what a romantic song! During this he got on one knee and asked for her to marry him… she said YES! Candice is in the diamond industry so she choose the most stunning diamond ring!! We think diamonds are girls best friends.
They popped the bubbly and Nicola took some photo’s of the newly engaged couple!
After it was getting dark, they moved to their room where they stayed up all night talking about their exciting future together. Boschendal has some cottages that are ideal for a romantic getaway. The fire places were lit and we had pre-ordered in some sushi for their dinner.
