Treasure hunt proposal in Franschhoek
On the 10th September 2019, Himanshu and Tanvi got engaged!
Both from the USA they came to Cape Town on holiday. They have been together for 2 years and fell in love at a party they both attended. They love travelling and exploring new places thus a treasure hunt was a perfect idea.
Himanshu wanted to include each place they have visited together in the treasure hunt. Thus we set the plan in motion to see if Franschhoek could offer us what we needed. We mapped out the town, did some research and came up with appropriate gifts and stops that matched their travels. The plan was set as a treasure hunt proposal in Franschhoek.
We started her off by having a manicure at Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa. We needed to separate this wonder couple without creating too much suspicion. Himanshu went to the last stop to wait for his soon to be fiance to arrive. At each stop, Tanvi received a gift, a photo of their trip and love note. She was such a sport as she travelled around to each stop in a private shuttle. The treasure hunt went as follows:
Bistro Bon Bon – Paris card & glass of bubbly
Huguenot Monument – Amsterdam card & tulips
Col’Cacchio Restaurant – Italy card & Tiramisu
Huguenot Fine Chocolate Shop – Switzerland card & box of chocolates
La Cotte Inn wine shop – Portugal card & bottle of Portuguese white wine
Big Dog Cafe – Puerto Rico card & bag of coffee
The last stop was La Reidence where they got engaged – a magical place to finish off their adventure!
Thank you for letting us assist you with this fun proposal – we loved helping you explore more of South Africa. We hope you visit us again soon as it now has to be your FAVORITE place in the world!
A special thanks to Sian, our lovely photographer who captured the whole proposal, from start to end. She helped Tanvi when required and even took some videos for the couple to share to family.
