Natasha and Neal got engaged on the 3rd October 2013 at the stunning La Motte in Franschhoek. It was the most amazing Treasure hunt marriage proposal ever…
This proposal was the most elaborate and beautiful weekend ever planned. Neal is a romantic and wanted only the best for this girlfriend Natasha. She is actually the owner of a successful wedding website in Joburg called www.yesbabydaily.com this just added that extra pressure as she is also a romantic at heart!
Neal contacted us to say he wanted an unforgettable proposal for Tash, something that they will remember forever! Their favorite town is Franschhoek so that was chosen as the place to propose. They share happy memories there as a couple.
A lots of planning from all sides was put in to make this proposal very special. It all started when Neal came up with a plan to tell Tash they were going to Cape Town for the weekend, as they were going to ‘Rocking the Daises music concert’. Tash thinking this was excited for the trip and didn’t actually know it was the BIG proposal weekend.
They flew into Cape Town, drove through to Franschhoek on arrival Tash had a lunch with her mum and sister. At lunch Tash received her first “box” that had a little love note from Neal and instructions on where to go next. After that the ladies then got pampered at La Franschhoek Spa (Tash obviously getting a manicure). The next box arrived and she headed to the room to find a large bunch of white roses & a little black dress with a love note attached. An old VW hippie van arrived to collect her and take her on a “treasure hunt” through Franschhoek town. Stopping off at places they had shared great memories!
Tash finally arrived at La Motte wine estate, Neal led her into the private “secret garden” where he proposed! She said YES! We did have some funny wind issues as Cape Town weather is unpredictable but all in all a happy moment! After taking some photo’s they enjoyed a romantic dinner for two to celebrate their engagement! It was not over yet…Neal spoiled Tash the whole weekend taking her all over Cape Town. A lovely Treasure hunt marriage proposal that will be remembered forever!
We wish them all the happiness and success in the world! What a very special and beautiful couple who have shared so much already! May your journey together be a happy one!
Thanks to all the suppliers involved.
