Laura and Nick are such a fun loving and easy going couple! They came down from Joburg for the weekend and we managed to squeeze in an engagement shoot one afternoon. Laura suggested the forest area behind Rhodes Memorial and it was a perfect fit for the adventurous couple.
Thanks so much for the awesome time guys – looking forward to your wedding later this year!

Here’s some background about the couple

How did you meet?
We were introduced by a friend.

What shared interests do you have?
Exploring new culinary delights, teaching our chocolate lab Lucy to sit, going on adventures and drinking red wine on the couch

How did Nick propose?
Nick was very romantic and took me on a weekend away (this didn’t give anything away to me) to a lodge just outside of Kruger and took me on a private game drive (still I had no idea), set up a special picnic treat in the reserve (completely oblivious) got down on one knee and I nearly died of surprise!

How do you both envision your wedding day?
Eat, drink and be merry. Super chilled garden vibes!

Random facts!
Nick is an obsessive compulsive cleaner and I’m completely unperturbed by mess.
