This mountain top adventure with the lovely Helen and Josh got a bit of the adrenaline flowing! With the siren buzzing that the cableway was closing and my light only just starting to turn fantastic, we pushed the limits before catching the last cable car down! I loved shooting these two and am so excited for the road ahead with them! Being “wingmen” for their respective friends (who quickly ditched them!) they hit it off in, dare I say, Tiger Tiger! Since then they’ve had visa battles and endured long-distance as Josh lives in Zim, but nothing can stand in the way of real love.This proposal was like no other involving surprise roses,a champagne breakfast,followed by a manicure, a visit to a chocolate boutique, a secret note in a sunflower, a helicopter ride over the peninsula culminating in a surprise picnic in the Constantia vineyards and this proper prince down on one knee! Josh, you definitely made sure the answer would be yes! After this dream of a day, there was a surprise party with their family, friends and favourite band – surely a day to treasure and remember forever! Until it gets topped by the wedding day! Helen and Josh are perfectly balanced – he is more extroverted with his booming voice and enthusiasm for friends and adventure and sports, Helen is more the quiet homebody, deep-thinking, calm, creative and sophisticated… Already, this young couple understand their love languages, have spontaneous dances in supermarket aisles and explore all the beauty around them. All recipes for a great marriage! It hasn’t been an easy road to get to, but here is the beginning of the happily ever after and I am so thrilled for them and so excited to shoot their upcoming nuptials!
