Quoin Rock Picnic Proposal

Check out our blog post below to read about our summer picnic proposal styled shoot at Quoin Rock.

On Tuesday, 23 October 2020, Nearest and Dearest Events had a styled shoot at Quoin Rock Wine Estate. The stunning farm is located just outside of Stellenbosch. They have an award-winning restaurant, gorgeous wedding venue and lovely accommodation on offer. 

We styled one of their private picnic pergolas, which is the perfect setting to pop the question or even just to visit for a special celebration. 

Each of the outdoor picnic pergolas feature comfortable seating and are spaced out more than 10 metres apart. This offers the utmost privacy and ensures social distancing, therefore making it a huge attraction, given our current climate. 

The picnic baskets consist of a delicious spread of gourmet food including foie gras pate, fresh breads and a selection of local cheese and charcuterie. They also include bottomless sparkling water and award winning MCC.

To make the experience even more private, guests receive a walkie talkie on arrival, enabling them to communicate with their waiter. Therefore enabling guests to have top class service.

Every little detail is thought of and characterised by high-end luxury, ensuring the perfect spot for a romantic occasion. Because of the beautiful surroundings, we kept the decor to a minimum for this engagement set-up, to not take away from what the picnic spot offers. 

We received a few stunning engagement rings from The Ring Artisan to shoot with, showcasing the two different ring boxes their clients get to choose from. Paradiso Flowers contributed by creating a beautiful, lush, romantic bouquet of cream roses and a white ribbon. Lovely Megan, from Risen Sun captured the breathtaking setting.

Thank you to our amazing service providers, who made this shoot possible!
