What better way to close off the year 2016 than to get proposed to HIGH up in the sky!?
This is exactly what Conor did to propose to the love of his life, Candice. A Hot Air Balloon ride with Bill Harrops’ Balloon Safari in Skeerpoort. Candice did not suspect anything, seeing that a balloon ride was on her bucket list, and she just thought this is a really great gift from her boyfriend for the day before New Year’s.
I couldn’t exactly take pictures of them before their balloon ride – we didn’t want her to suspect anything – but I captured the preparations and a few sneaky pictures before they headed off.
Once they reached the highest level – and I’m under correction here, but I think it was over 6000ft – Conor got down on one knee to ask the big question….. and she said YES! Talk about ending your 2016 on a HIGH!
Once back on the ground again where I waited for them with the ground crew, their Pilot, presented some Champagne to celebrate before heading back to the Club house where I captured a few more images before their breakfast.
Conor & Candice – The bonding of your love was officially declared on the day of your engagement, handle it with care and expand this love throughout your life.
