Kerry and James
A Cape Town Table Top Mountain Proposal!
By Hannah Wiggins, October 2022
Congratulations to Kerry and James who recently got engaged on Kerry's birthday! The two were travelling from Johannesburg to Cape Town and whilst surrounded by the most epic views... James proposed! Here's the story...
Firstly, we have to ask, how did you and James meet? Take us back to the beginning...
When we asked Kerry how the two met she told us that they had actually met in high school, year 7 to be specific, but were just friends. Although, Kerry did fancy James! They left school at 16 and didn't cross paths again until they were 24, sparks flew after a few dates in 2018 the couple became official - that was just the start for James and Kerry!
Tell us about the proposal, how did James propose? How did you feel? Were you surprised? We have to say your photos are truly amazing!
Kerry: "The proposal was absolutely gorgeous, it was my birthday on the Monday and as we were travelling from Johannesburg to Cape Town on that day James decided we would celebrate my birthday on the Tuesday the 18th so we went to the V&A waterfront for lunch and he had booked the cable car to the top of Table Mountain for the sunset. When we got to the top we had a little drink and a wander and we stopped in a part that was quite secluded with gorgeous views and when I set my phone up to get a video James posed for a picture... and then he kind of stopped as I went to move and he said 'I love you you know'.... and then he got down on one knee!"
How fabulous! Certainly a surprise then - how funny that you caught your own proposal on camera!
