Boy meets Girl - how did you meet; where did the magic begin?

We met at University (UJ). We were both out one night after Varsity Cup at a place in Melville. He came up to me and asked me if I had false eyelashes. My reply to him was “NO I don't!”. I then started laughing (more like blushing because he was so good looking). He then asked me to close my eyes to prove that I didn’t have false lashes. I closed my eyes and he kissed me...

How long have you been dating?

We have been dating for almost 5 year

How would you describe yourselves?

I’m the more organised and serious one, where as Ivan is the easy-going, loving one who always takes care of me.

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

He nervously asked me to marry him on 27 April 2015 whilst on the big wheel at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.

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?

We won a photographer on Facebook by participating in a competition.The brilliant Wynand van der Merwe is our engagement-shoot photographer.

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

Roedean School - the Venue. It is a gorgeous private school in Johannesburg. My mom is a teacher there and asked permission for us to have the engagement shoot there.

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

We had no theme initially, on the way there Ivan suggested a picnic basket and goodies.

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

We shopped around for engagement rings, so he got an idea of what I liked. Then he had one made at Poggenpoel Diamonds
