Set a gorgeous estate garden, this sweet winter engagement session warms the heart!
Apparently, Pete went all out to surprise Ally with his proposal, which started with a romantic lunch in the winelands followed by a helicopter flip over the Cape Peninsula. That evening they celebrated with family, who had secretly travelled to Cape Town especially for the occasion. How sweet!
Ally and Pete’s winter engagement session took place in Vergelegen Estate, which boasts one of the most exquisite gardens in Somerset West. Enjoy the charming images by Shantelle Visser Photography.

Here’s a cute idea… To remind friends & family about their upcoming wedding day, Nick & Shelley had a ‘Save the Date’ video made.
Made by The Shark Tank, a Durban based husband and wife team who offer video, photography and audio production, the video tells Shelley & Nick’s beautiful love story (which I’m sure they will treasure for many years to come).
It was love at first sight. Nick and Shelley, Miss Deaf SA 2011 and an ambassador for Talk Sign SA, dated long distance for two months but Nick, who was based in Joburg at the time, missed Shelley too much.
