How did your love story begin?


We have The Love At First Sight story...

We both were admitted to the same hospital for a couple of days, unfortunately to say we both are smokers.
We saw each other for the first time at the smokers corner... though neither of us had the courage to approach one another but we both felt some kind of chemistry connect as our eyes crossed each other's path...
We some how had our smoking times from then synchronized and this meeting up and staring at each other several times daily built up our courage to approach one another... after a couple of days went by we both knew our chance and time was limited, we both felt the electrical connection and we just couldn't let it slip by.
We both approached each other at the same time and just started talking from then. We immediately connected and knew deep inside this is my soul mate, obviously not wanting to seem desperately or clingy we never mentioned this in the beginning but we both felt it...
We finally had our first proper date as soon as we both were discharged, and from then on we never spent more than a day without each other.
It took about a month till we moved in together and 6 months till we got engaged.
Two and a half years later we made it to the alter and we still keep falling deeper in love with each other every single day.

Tell us all about the proposal.


Our first holiday together at the south coast.
We were away for about 6 days only.
I some how was expecting it but never knew when.
As every day went by and nothing happened I lost my expectations, which I think was his plan...
On our last day at the beach just lying and falling asleep in the sun from out of no where he sits me up and goes down on his knees and asked me to be his wife and marry him.
I really never expected it so I burst into tears and "tackled" him and said yes!

The Honeymoon


Yes, started off with a slow drive to Ballito, we stayed the first night in a Pyramid hotel which was quite interesting and fun.
Next day made our way to the beautiful stunning hotel La Montagne in Ballito which we stayed at for 8 nights.
Then had a slow road trip home and made a over night stop at some bed and breakfast along the way.
