Sean and I are both originally from Port Elizabeth so we have a very special place in our heart for all things Eastern Cape. Part of his proposal was surprise tickets to visit our families two weeks later where his mom had arranged for an intimate engagement party to celebrate.
The first thing I did when I found out about the party was contact Charlie Ray Photography. I have been bursting to work with this talented team of photographers for years and finally had a reason. Jess and Ross were incredible. Such a lovely couple that very kindly squeezed us into their busy schedules on short notice. I was absolutely delighted to finally work with them and the photos took my breath away.
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to Charlie Ray for capturing our engagement party so exquisitely. I would highly recommend them for any event, wedding or engagement shoot. They are based in Port Elizabeth but they travel wherever you need them. Such a talented team with golden hearts.
The Country Road Group kindly offered to dress me so I had a very special private shopping experience where I selected multiple pieces to take home with me to choose in peace. The Witchery dress was simple and expertly tailored for a timeless elegance. I even got to choose sunglasses and a handbag. Thank you for spoiling me so fully.
