Aimee and Dane

Boy meets Girl - How did you meet? Where did the magic begin?

We met in 2009 at church, but the sparks really started flying at the end of 2010 after walking into each other at the beach.


How long have you been dating?

We started dating in 2011 until 2013, and then we got back together again in 2016.

How would you describe yourselves?

I would describe us as loving, kind hearted and especially with Dane being the Pastor of a church our hearts are really to bring hope, and to equip broken people.

When did he propose and how did he pop the big question?

On the 16th of December 2016, Dane and I took an early morning sunrise hike up the picturesque Lions Head mountain in Cape Town. Once we reached the summit, Dane went down on his knee and asked me to marry him. This was the most perfect day, and surrounded by the beauty of our city and oceans in the background.

Why and how did you decide on an engagement shoot? Did you specifically book it or is it an extra offered to you when you booked your photographer?

Originally we won an engagement shoot with Katie Mayhew Photography, but once we saw the quality of her work we knew we found our wedding photographer as well.

Where did you shoot your engagement shoot and how is the location linked to you?

We love beautiful views and with our Engagement being on top of Lion's Head, we wanted a similar backdrop for our shoot. Sunset on Chapman's Peak Drive gave us that perfect setting with the beauty of Hout Bay behind us.

What is the theme of your engagement shoot or what is it inspired by?

We didn't really have a theme, but we wanted something to compliment our personalities - vibrancy

Did he choose your bling or did you pick your ring together?

He chose the ring himself, he has great taste.

Are you making use of a wedding planner or are you planning your wedding all on your own?

Our Venue, Bakenhof has amazing packages that basically offers everything your heart desires.
