Claudine & Warren

[dropcap color=”rosy”]M[/dropcap]y fiance, Warren, and I have been dating for just over 6 years and have been talking about getting married for quite a while. We eventually took up the courage to ask our parents’ permission and went ring hunting. As men and women are different, we went to quite a few jewellery stores. Eventually we saw a ring we both liked and looked no further.


December 19th, we went out for supper and went for a walk on the beach in Sea Point, it was a lovely summers evening and the beach was quite quiet. We were checking out this stunning trawler floating on the ocean covered in lights – it looked like a castle. I kept thinking wow this is the perfect moment for him to pop the question…..but nope, nothing. I’ve known that he’s had the ring for the past month…..and started wondering what’s taking him so long…. At the end of the evening I just got fed up and thought oh well guess it won’t be happening tonight. We got in the car and I fell asleep. He then pulled off on the N1 and I woke with such a fright and asked what’s the matter and he said the car’s making a funny noise. And I’m thinking – Really? Not again – we don’t have money to fix another thing! HE asked me to get out to help him check something and there he was on one knee asking me to marry him. It surely did take me by surprise and it was absolutely perfect, as he would say – it was a perfect set up with Table Mountain in the background and the calmness of the summer evening. I was in so much shock I didn’t even give him a chance to say his speech, I just said yes and asked him to get up – people are looking at us.

He wanted the proposal to be a surprise and didn’t want me to suspect a thing – it worked!

    Hi. I’m the Carl from http://saweddingvenues.com/proposals-2013/justine-and-carl/
    I know this is a competition, and that comments mean votes, but to me it is more than that.
    This is about marriage and the people who take that step. You have chosen this path, and my wish is that your relationship may be blessed.
    Congratulations on your engagement and all the best for the big day – and every day of your journey together.

  • Lynn Adonis

    Sweet man, this is so romantic and really very original. I pray that you grow old together remembering the first day you met, and after many years of marriage you will say, I love you more that the first time I fell in love with you. Congratulations on your engagement and may the competition help you to make your dream wedding come true.
