Today we are sharing the cosmopolitan styled shoot from Danielle and Eurice’s city stroll engagement. Photographed by Matthew Carr, the shoot starts with coffee at I Love My Laundry. Then we follow the quirky pair to BoKaap. As the sun sets the couple make their way to the beautifully quaint, Fork. One of Cape Town’s best tapas restaurants. Danielle shares a bit of their story with us.
My parents owned a liquor store in Somerset West and I was in my third year studying in Wellington at the time. I went to visit my parents one weekend and my mom told me about this lovely sweet guy named Eurice. He had a small holiday job where he would braai boerewors rolls outside a butcher that was next to my parents shop. I went to buy a boerewors roll one day and he was wearing a Western Province shirt with orange crocs. It was very funny! After chatting a few times, he asked me if I wanted to go for coffee and then wine. We clicked from day one and that is how it all began.
Eurice’s sister asked me to go with her to a wine festival in Grabouw. Her boss was unable to go and gave her the tickets. It included romantic accommodation too. We arrived at the farm, had wine and then we headed to our accommodation. We had to go on a little boat to get there. The little house had a jetty and as we got closer I could see something was going on, but I couldn’t see that far. As we got closer I saw Eurice standing with a bunch of roses on the jetty that was lit full of candles, a beautiful table was set and our favourite song was playing. He then went down on his knee & asked me to marry him
