Proposing to your loved one is one of the most memorable experiences in your life. It pays to make sure you get hitched without a glitch! That is why we are here to help you along the way. From locations that offer an adrenaline rush, to tranquil and peaceful picnics, one of our suggested places to pop the question is bound to tickle your fancy.
Here are our top 8 places to pop the question around the Mother City:
1. Table Mountain
Take the cableway to the summit, or for those feeling slightly more adventurous and up for a hike, Platteklip Gorge will lead you to the top. There are various marked trails on top of the mountain which allow for a more private setting. Upon arriving at the top, find a ‘Marry Me’ sign and a picnic box with some snacks, MCC and orange juice, set up by us. What better way to quench the thirst and celebrate this special time than with some mimosas! How many people can say they’ve got engaged at one of the seven wonders of the world?
2. Beach picnic
The Cape beaches make for the most romantic occasions. Spread a picnic blanket on the Clifton sand and add some decorative cushions for that added comfort. In addition, we can light some candles and scatter some rose petals to make this occasion even more romantic. As the sun sets, you get down on one knee and the journey of your new life together begins.
3. Whimsical Winelands
Where do we even start?! The Stellenbosch wine route has so many beautiful and tranquil wine farms that it can be a bit overwhelming to choose one. However, our team is here to point you in the right direction. Whether your partner loves chocolate, cheese or even biltong, there is a food and wine pairing for everyone. Start the day with a wine tasting, and arrive at a romantic picnic set up, overlooking vineyards or in a cellar.
4. Helicopter spin
See Cape Town from a bird’s eye view. Our reliable helicopter contact has a range of amazing tours. These include Cape Point, Atlantic and Robben Island, each giving a different route and perspective of the city.
5. Hot air balloon ride
You will take off from a picturesque site situated between Stellenbosch and Paarl. As the balloon launches, you will watch as the breathtaking scenery unfolds. From the sweeping fields and rolling vineyards to the rugged mountains, as you rise towards the clouds, everything becomes more peaceful. With the tranquil ambiance, away from the city’s hustle and bustle, what better opportunity to get down on one knee.
6. Sunset cruise
Take a romantic cruise around the Waterfront Harbour. With a glass of bubbly in hand and a Cape Town sunset, this is definitely the right ambiance for some romance. We can make this experience extra special by arranging for your partner’s favourite food and drinks on the cruise. Alternatively, we can organize a romantic dinner at one of the top restaurants. Family and friends are welcome to join for the celebration afterward!
7. Treasure hunt through the historic Stellenbosch
The day will begin at a beautiful wine estate. We will give your partner a map and blindfold them, after which they will arrive at a secret location. Upon arriving at one of the main streets, they will begin walking down, visiting stores and cafes along the way. They will stop to collect an envelope with a clue and a significant token at each location, leading them to the next. Finally, they will end off at a popular restaurant, where you will be waiting for them and ready to ask “Will you marry me?”. The two of you will celebrate the happy occasion with a private dinner and some bubbly.
8. Cape Town Diamond Museum
For a unique proposal that will sweep your partner off their feet, we’ll arrange for you and your significant other to visit the Cape Town Diamond Museum. The two of you can then make a spontaneous visit to one of the well-known jewellery designer stores, where your partner can try on engagement rings. Lastly, after asking which ring they prefer, make their dreams come true by getting down on one knee right then and there!
From sourcing the location and ensuring these memories are captured by the best photographer to arranging the decor, food and bubbly, we are here to make sure that all-important question turns into a YES!
