Favourite wedding proposals!

There’d be neither bride nor wedding without a proposal. See what the grooms have done to catch their lucky girl.

We’ve compiled a list of our favourite proposals ...

Ulpha & Muneeb
One day as we were chilling with friends at the beach, he whispered in my ear, “Marry me”. I thought he was joking, but when he dropped me at home, he asked my parents and I knew he was serious...

Yegendhree & Jerome
The both of us then went for a walk on the beach and there under the water with the beautiful fish swimming around us he got down on one knee and held up this poster that read " Gen, Will you marry me, Jerome".

Michelle & Roscoe
It was on our 4 year anniversary after dinner at our favourite restaurant that I walked into our house and was blown away… to find it was filled with hundreds of pink candles. Amazed I turned around where I found Roscoe on BOTH knees. With ring in hand he asked me to be his wife.

Genna & Daryll
He convinced me to go the Orchid House, which is my favorite place, but as we got there the door was locked! Daryll was so frustrated and nervous by this time, that he threw down the picnic basket, got on his knee and asked me to marry him. I got such a fright, I screamed, “what are you doing!?!?”, and crying I said ,”I can’t see the ring!”

Mpho and Molokela
After 8 blissful years, he came to my place one evening and surprised me by announcing that his parents will be going to my parents’ house... When his family came to pay lobola, Molokela proposed in front of our families and slipped an engagement ring on my finger...

Kim & Donavan
“I spoke to your dad and I told him that the best birthday gift he could ever give me was your hand in marriage and he gave us his blessings… Kim Carmel Johnson will you do me the honor of making me the happiest man alive and be my wife”

Nadia & Aadil

Aadil presented me with over 100 pink and white long stemmed roses... He had a lot to say, but I was so excited that i kept saying, "yes I do, yes I do!" And then... the ring came... It was the most beautiful and precious jewel I had ever laid my eyes on…

Lucille and Jaap
He didn’t get down on one knee because he said that we are equal and we will always be...

Wendy and Steve
Steve had booked a table at a quiet, romantic French restaurant for us to celebrate my birthday on our own... He got up off his chair and down on one knee in one swift movement. He proposed in French first, and then translated into English while I looked dumbfounded...

Donna and Gavin

We decided to take a walk on the beach in the late afternoon... As the sun was setting, he told me how much he loves me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me... And then popped the question! Just the 2 of us, one big surprise and just the way I'd always wanted...

Charlene and Marc
We were together for 8 months when he asked me to marry him. We had been living together for 2 weeks, and while lying in our new white silky sheets with nothing but our naked bodies, he softly caressed me as he asked the big question... It was such a special intimate moment between us, I will remember it for as long as I live.

Samantha and Alastair
I surprised her one morning with a drive to a private air strip in KZN to go sky diving.... I had a friend make a banner that was 20m x 5m saying "MARRY ME SAM"... I jumped out of the plane before Samantha and when she dived after she was able to see the sign on the landing strip from 1000 feet up... When she landed, I was there with the ring...
