Christoff’s sister Carla contacted me one afternoon enquiring about my Packages. With excitement she shared her engineer of a brother’s brilliant idea of proposing to the love of his life, Anika. Step one, a new camera was delivered to my residence which I had to use along with my trusty Canon to capture The moment. The same camera would then be presented to them at the end of the shoot capturing their new season together. How awesome is that?!
Step two, at Bouchard Finlayson Boutique Vineyard, along with winemaker Chris and marketing manager Johann we vowed to ensure that their day would be perfect in every way. And so it was, the tasting was one of Chris’s best yet while Johann and I pretended to be busy in the vicinity with a sneaky picture or video taken from my special hiding place, wine barrel Hannibal. Finally Chris returned with the grand final, the Galpin Peak, Pinot Noir presented to Christoff and Anika as “The Perfect Pair”. Snuck beneath the sign was the ring box which Christoff snatched up so eager to ask Anika that we barely made it in time. Before Johann knew what happened I thrusted my phone in his hands asking him to capture the moment on video. This one was too good not to capture!
Congratulations to Christoff and Anika, may your new season be filled with milk and honey and Pinot Noirs.
Venue: Bouchard Finlayson Boutique Vineyard, Hemel en Aarde Valley, Hermanus
