“Let’s take our hearts for a walk in the woods and listen to the magic whispers of old trees”
We are quite sure that when Ray asked her to go for a stroll around the pine forest on a freezing Saturday morning at Dunkeld Estate in Dullstroom Sam had no idea that the little walk would lead to her having a shiny rock on her finger!
This was one of the most thoughtful proposal’s we have seen, not only did he whisk her away to a beautiful cabin in the countryside but Ray spend weeks planning this… from finding the perfect engagement ring, asking her parents in secret, creating and having a whole story of all their years spent together and all their most precious memories printed and then finding the gorgeous little forest chapel close to Dullstroom (and hiring us of course).
Sam and Ray came down the pathway – all snuggled up against the cold, where Steph & I were disguised as two forest ninjas and we just watched and silently photographed as he led her up the aisle…down memory lane…before he dropped to one knee under the forest arch and popped the question. It was so so special and we feel so blessed that we could get a little glimpse into their lives and see this very precious moment…. Thankfully she said yes!! So we could come out of hiding and snap a few shots before these two headed back out of the freezing cold to their hideaway in the woods…
