Event Affairs News-Zine EA Edition 16 - Page 4

Planning a Perfect Proposal It was a spectacular spring afternoon in Cape Town - not a cloud in the sky. Durban couple, Muhammed and Aaliya, were on vacation and visited the gorgeous Tintswalo Atlantic boutique lodge in Hout Bay. Muhammed suggested they have a bite to eat at around 7pm. But before then, he wanted to indulge in the beautiful views with his girlfriend. Little did she know that the Event Affairs team had been busy planning the day that would change her life. Behind the scenes, we were preparing a secluded spot by the pool. He wanted red roses, and plenty of them! We created a path of rose petals leading up to a stun- [04] ning heart-shaped bed of roses. As the couple arrived, they followed the path and when they reached the end, Muhammed got down on one knee and asked Aaliya to spend the rest of her life with him. She said… Yes! I mean, who wouldn’t? The couple toasted to their future and after the shock of the surprise had worn off, Muhammed and Aaliya had a spontaneous photoshoot to capture this moment together. The evening ended off with a delicious 5-course meal, in a private section of the dining room, overlooking Hout Bay Harbour. Congrats to Muhammed and Aaliya from the entire Event Affairs team!
