How did your love story begin?


We met on 7 March 2014. It was through a mutual friend. They had come over to my place for drinks and that's where we met. At my Place! We all went out later the evening for drinks. We exchanged numbers. That's where we started to chat n social media and I invited him for drinks at my place. We decided to go for coffee instead but that was the worst coffee we ever had. Right then we had moment of laughter about our experience and that where it started. And the rest is history as they say ☺.

Tell us all about the proposal.


My sister just bought a new camera and want to take a few pictures. I realised we haven't went for a couple shoot yet like most modern couples do. I then asked my sister to take a few photos the Sunday afternoon. We all agreed and it's set. Sunday morning he text me he didn't get time the Saturday to go for a haircut. I was so upset because I had my outfit ready did all the hair, nails and make up like a woman should. I told him if he ever want to go for a couple shoot he has to arrange that because I did go through all that for nothing. I was really upset. Then few weeks later he told me we are going for a photoshoot the next day. I shrugged it off because I was still a bit upset, but i did all that again after all. As the pictures were taken the next day he told me he had to go check his laptop in the car. It didn't make sense , but I was too excited about the photoshoot. We all went to a hut to take some more pictures that when he proposed. I was so shocked I forgot to say yes at that moment haha I did say yes few min after when he asked me "well are you going to say yes?". Well later I discovered my brother in-law had the ring with him after he came back from the car. One of my happiest days of my life and my sister who captured it all on camera.
