How did your love story begin?


When I met him casually in November of 2014 through a mutual friend I didnt think I was meeting my future husband. We would occassionally hang out each time his friend was in town. Until everything changed one weekend in April of 2018 (4 years later) when he gave me a ride and we took a road trip down to Portshepstone. We chatted and got to know eachother on a level both of us didn't expect... and the rest is history :)

Tell us all about the proposal.


Oh my gosh! The best day of my life by far! We were travelling with a group of friends through Europe as my fiance had to attend his graduation at a Business School in the UK and we decided to make it a holiday. We left London to Paris and we were so excited to see the Eiffel Tower and take pictures in our Zulu attires. My fiance tricked me into thinking we were jus there to do a photoshoot but the next thing I knew he was on his knees and asked me to marry him. It was the most incredible moment, the kinda stuff I always read about or watched on TV. I am so blessed and a lucky gal.
