Kristel & Sarel
We just got engaged this Saturday 27 July 2013 in Majick Forest. It was the most romantic and special proposal ever.
We won a couple shoot which we decided to have this Saturday, but the problem was that it rained the whole day and thought we would have to move the photoshoot the another day. Finally an hour before the shoot the sun started shining and the rained stopped and we went all steam ahead with the photo shoot.
While we were walking through Majick forest (me and the photographer ahead and my boyfriend and the assistant behind us) my boyfriend told the assistant that he wanted to propose today. While we where having the photoshoot the photographer asked that we go down to the small river and that I should sit on a branch, that’s when it happened and Sarel went down on his knee, just as he went down on his knee it started to storm rain and in the rain he asked me if I would marry him. I was so excited and flabbergasted I didn’t worry about the rain or how my hair etc will look on the photos. Everybody who I tell about the proposal say that rain means blessings from God, I think God gave us a proper blessing with all that rain that poured over us. You can see the proposal photo below J:
Message from photographer: “Sarel en Kristel – VERLOOF. Dit het gevoel soos n live Notebook moment gemeng met n episode van “The Bachelor”…. Dis asof die reen on cue was!! Daar sak Sarel af op sy kniee in die storm reen en vra Kristel om sy vrou te wees .. as ek nie so besig was om te neem nie sou ek seker begin huil het!! Baie geluk weereens … julle verdien dit”
