Lauren du Plessis submitted her E-shoot for us to feature here on lovilee. Her fiancé Mark, owns a yacht and their engagement party was a nautical theme, Lauren sewed bunting for the table décor and added it to the yacht for the shoot.

All about how the couple met and their proposal as told by Lauren
We met on-line, on a dating site, we went on a few dates and then decided to see each other exclusively and our relationship developed from there.

The weekend he proposed: We went to Nature’s Valley for a camping weekend, on the Saturday Morning we went for a mini hike, Mark had packed the surprise picnic lunch and had it in his back pack. After a short distance we stopped for lunch. He took out a blanket lay it down, then proceeded to unpack the lunch- a variety of cheeses, hams, figs, caramel dessert. When we had eaten he said he had one more surprise… He pulled out a ring box and asked me to be his wife. It was the ring I had described to him months previously (which he had to order in, since PE no longer had stock) While I was still saying YES and admiring my ring he pulled out a bottle of champagne he had packed in along with wine glasses. It was an amazing and romantic moment I’ll never forget. We are getting married on 23 February 2013.
