A Huge congratulations to Willem & Roche on their engagement on the 7th September 2013. A stunning willow tree marriage proposal…
We asked Willem how they met, this is what he told us: “The first time that I saw her she was walking down the stairs and something inside me just told me that this is the girl that you are going to marry”
When Willem first got in touch his brief to us was a proposal on a wine farm in the vineyards! And that is exactly what we arranged for him. Vrede en Lust wine farm in Franschhoek was the chosen venue after many choices to go through!
They arrived on the farm and went straight to a cellar tour & wine tasting in the main tasting area. This was so Roche did not have any clue what was going to happen next!
After they had finished he asked her to go for a walk around the farm. We had set-up a romantic picnic next to a little stream, under a willow tree in the vineyards for the two love birds.
After being rather nervous Willem proposed to Roche on arrival at the picnic site, while Christine our lovely photographer, captured the beautiful moment on camera. The most amazing willow tree marriage proposal!
After they had popped the champagne, ate some delicious snacks and enjoy the scenery he whisked her off to the Waterfront for a helicopter ride to the 12 Apostles Hotel for a relaxing couples spa treatment, followed by dinner at Azure.
We wish them all the best on their journey together.
May they share many more happy memories!
