How did your love story begin?


We started off as nothing more than friend that just greeted one another.. This day my cousin invited me to a braai and there stood the perfect guy.. We just stared at each other.. As the night went by the gentleman came over and asked for my number.. We then started off on a cloud as the days went by he said he would like to do this the right way and went to my dad to ask for permission my dad agreed as they knew he was the perfect one for me.. And 8 years later we still together.. We will be getting married next year in December month.. I can't wait to marry the love of my life ❤️❤️❤️

Tell us all about the proposal.


This all felt like a dream... Apparen9witgout me knowing he bought a ring in October month and asked for my dad's blessing.. But as my dad felt I was to young he said he will keep the ring and give it back to my fiance when he felt the time was right.. Only in December month that year he gave him the ring on the 25th asking him to make me the happiest girl on earth.. We had our Christmas lunch on the beach and afterwards strolled down and took a long walk in the beach and then all of us went on the rocks only to see how my dad takes out the camera and start snapping as he went down on his knee
