Widaad and Paul

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

Our adventure began 8 years ago when we met at a movie store, from co-workers we became friends and right from the offset "sparks" although I would at the time be the last one to admit it. Paul's love for adventure and my wicked sense of humour made for good story telling and interesting conversations. The plot thickened on an occasion when I dropped my house key in the drain, not funny at the time but has become one of our laughable stories, of course Paul came to my rescue but in an unexpected way as we didn't manage to retrieve the key and I had to end up spending the night at his place...nothing happened yet. A year later we had both moved on to other jobs when we met up at a friends birthday party, that was the first night we kissed and from thereon we started dating and since continued to have wild adventures from jumping off 20m bridges to surfing huge waves our adventurous journey continues, engaged since 22 April 2016 and this is when we became even more magical. #Soulmates!!


How long have you been dating?

7 Years

How would you describe yourselves?

Fun, energetic and slightly wacky!

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

22 April 2016, on a dinner date down on one knee ….

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 never had an engagement party and though it would be very fitting to celebrate with a photoshoot, bonus that we won the Katie one

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

Muizenberg Beach, we adore the beach- it calms the soul!

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

Its inspired by our personalities and how much we adore the ocean

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

I received diamonds and was able to design my own ring

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

We are planning on our own with lots of help from family and friends, we might need to enlist a planner later …

Can you give us a little sneak peak of what you are planning for your wedding?

A beach setting of course with our nearest and dearest, we come from very different backgrounds, cultures and religions and will therefore incorporate all of these aspects into our special day
