On the 28h October 2016, Sharvay and Yajna got engaged.
We just loved everything about this amazing couple, their overwhelming love for each other, the story of how they met and their complete joy in the moment.
Sharvay got in touch with us and wanted to plan a proposal while the two of them were on holiday in Durban. The couple are both doctors in Cape Town, so with their very busy schedules, their time off together is limited. He thought that doing something on her birthday would throw her off the scent of a proposal, so the date was set for the 28th and we began planning a whole day of spoils.
A very rainy and wet day dawned and the couple made their way to Makaranga Gardens. They started their morning with a couple’s massage at the lodge’s Spa, and also a convenient manicure for Yajna 😉 They then sat down to a birthday breakfast. We decorated the table with balloons, her favorite flowers and of course “Happy Birthday” cupcakes.
Unfortunately, the rain didn’t ease up so there were a few last minute changes to the original plans. This certainly didn’t dampen the mood and the excitement you could see in Sharvay.
The next stop was the Durban botanical gardens, where we set up GIANT “Will You Marry Me?” signs on the front lawn. The gardens were completely empty and had this misty glow to them. It was the perfect setting.
As the couple walked in Yajna saw the signs across the lawn, Sharvay dropped to one knee and she said YES! Chris Allan from Peppermint Pix captured this happy moment on camera. There was so much laughter, hugging, kissing, smiling and joy around it was incredible! They then had a photo shoot through the gardens. There are few words to describe this happy afternoon… the pictures certainly do!
Sharvay and Yajna big letter proposal was beautiful. We wish them everything of the best for an incredibly happy future together.
