Francois asks Carrie to be his Forever {Proposal}

 

Apparently I could survive the Hunger Games (if all I had to do was hide away in the trees and not be spotted by all those vicious teenagers with weapons) but the point is: my camo abilities are epic. Which is a good thing since I hid in the willows at Mont Rochelle this Sunday and witnessed one of my besties get engaged. What an incredible honour getting to witness Francois ask Carrie to be his Forever – and then gatecrash their picnic ( I mean share in their celebrations!?)

Thank you Francois for allowing me to share in your most special day… you did good… especially with that ring. Black diamond for the win! Wishing you both all the happiness that Forever can hold (and then some more because if you squeeze real hard you can squish some extra good stuff in…) Love you both lots xx

 

{Family Lifestyle} In the country with Team du Toit

To say I love these people is an understatement; they’ve become family. I recently spent a couple of days with them in Riebeeck’s Kasteel and yes, we did the more formal family photos in the nearby vineyards… but my favourite shots are definitely the ones taken while we just did Life: chatting on the verandah while the kids played…

Engagement {Laetitia & Riaan}

I love hearing couple’s Engagement Stories; each is so different and personal.  Riaan and Laetitia’s is no exception.  What was even more special for me is that I got to witness it – before even meeting them!  Riaan proposed on stage at the FAB Bridal Expo at Grand West, where I was exhibiting… fast forward a couple of weeks are here they are working the camera like pro’s at the always lovely De Grendel Wine Farm.
