How We Met

We met nearly 7 years ago at university through a mutual friend, unaware that my cousin and Nick’s brother had been friends for years before. Meant to be!

How He Asked

During a trip to the Kruger National Park, Nick surprised me by taking me to a private lodge in the Timbavati Game reserve.

During an evening game drive, our ranger pulled up to a beautiful spot overlooking a dry riverbed and the setting sun where the camp staff had set up lanterns, snacks, candles and champagne on ice.

It was the perfect setting for our proposal because we are both passionate about “the bush”, as we call it in South Africa.

We had another week to celebrate our engagement in paradise – game viewing, gin and tonics and beautiful warm weather.
