Set in and around the magnificent Karkloof indigenous forest in Howick, Rochell and Wiam’s enchanting engagement session will forever be treasured illustrations of their modern-day fairy tale.
Photographed in the Karkloof Canopy Tours’ forest, the photo shoot ended in the same place they had stopped after the proposal, a restaurant called the Yellowwood Café. “The whole shoot was kind of a re-living of their proposal, which I thought was kind of special,” said photographer Katie Wisdom of Summertown Pictures.
Here is their love story, as told by the groom-to-be…
How We Met
It was early one summer’s night, during a hostel movies night, I saw Rouchell for the first time. After talking to her for a while I realised that she was everything and more than I have ever dreamed about having in a woman. After our first kiss the deal was sealed ; )
I knew in my mind, heart, body and soul after the first night that she would be the one standing next to me one day saying, “I do.” For two years I knew the date of our wedding and finally I got to ask the big question.
I fell in love with my best friend and, since we always go on adventures together, I thought what better way to start our awesome adventure together than at Karkloof Canopy Tours in the rainforest at Howick. I planned everything thoroughly but, when the day came it felt like all my plans were going wrong. However, it turned out perfect, more perfect than I could have ever imagined. The rain was pouring and love shining – it was the best day of our lives!
