Table Mountain Proposal
Mo and Ray
This Table Mountain proposal was very special. Mo had put a lot of effort into planning this special event. Initially, I was contacted by Ray’s sister on facebook but Mo soon took over. He was thorough in checking details to make sure his gesture would be a total success.
Mo flew Ray down to Cape Town for a long weekend and to keep Ray in the dark, he pretended that he booked me for a couple shoot. I met up with them at Camps Bay and continued the pretence of a couple shoot.
The plan had always been to do the proposal on top of Table Mountain and we then persuaded Ray to take the photoshoot up to the top of Mountain. Luckily going to the top of Table Mountain had been on her bucket list.
Mo was fortunate in that the queue for Table Mountain was non existent on that evening. He was able to buy his tickets and progress straight to the cablecar. Kind of unheard of for a trip up Table Mountain. I definitely think this Table Mountain proposal was written in the stars.
In spite of it being cold and windy on the mountain, Mo was eager to pop the question! As soon as he had asked a fellow tourist to video his proposal on his phone and made sure the tourist was in position, Mo straightaway got down on his knee while Ray was enjoying the view!
Ray was quite emotional while Mo popped the question but as soon as was possible was quick to say Yes!
Furthermore, I must admit that hiding this blackboard in my camera bag was a total mission. I actually had to change bags in order for it to fit and consequently left my ID to prove I was a local in the wrong bag. On this occasion, luckily I had left the other bag in my boot so I was able to run back and grab it.
