On the 14th February 2014, Valentine’s Day, Shawn and Karin got engaged! it was a stunning Beau Constantia proposal.
They are from Cape Town and have been together for 5 long years. He wanted to give her a big surprise so he decided it was best to do it on the most romantic day of the year.
They arrived at Beau Constantia wine farm in the afternoon being led to believe they were having a wine tasting in the area for Valentine’s day, little did she know it was all for her!
Shawn led Karin into the tasting room, where the staff gave them a small wine tasting to calm the nerves. After this they were led to their private balcony where the proposal would happen. She saw the orchids, Aero chocolates and bubbly all her favorite things on the table. We hung bunting, hearts and fairy lights so after dark it would look magical. The views from the venue are incredible, they look over the whole Constantia valley. Beau Constantia proposal fit for a queen.
Shawn popped the question and Karin said YES! Our sneaky photographer, Hayley was hiding away and captured the whole thing on film. They popped the bubbly and enjoyed the moment together, while the nerves settled. After this they had a couples shoot around the farm so they can look back on the happy memories forever. A story to tell generations to come…
They enjoyed a cheese platters, canapes, burgers and yummy desserts all evening while watching the sunset over the valley. A very romantic occasion on such a ‘romantic’ night!
We congratulate Shawn and Karin on their engagement and wish them all the best for the future.
