Monday, 29 February 2016: To celebrate the month of love, and the fact that 2016 is a leap year; Smile Breakfast with Bobby Brown and Lindy Hibbard made a Cape Town couple’s dreams come true today when they hosted a surprise engagement at the One & Only Resort, Cape Town as the last chapter in the Smile Breakfast “Take the Leap” campaign.
Lindy Hibbard, Smile Breakfast co-presenter, accompanied Carien de Jager from Durbanville, who was pre-selected by the Smile Breakfast team to meet her then boyfriend (now fiancé!), Marcel van Tonder, at the One and Only Resort situated at the V&A Waterfront for a beautifully planned secret proposal, complete with a live broadcast by Smile 90.4 FM from the Vista Bar with romantic red flowers and sparkling champagne.
The hotel’s Vista Bar, with its large 2-storey windows forming a picturesque backdrop of Table Mountain, created the perfect setting for Carien to pop the question in the spirit of the leap year, and propose to her forever man, Marcel.When Marcel responded with a resounding “YES” (and the Smile 90.4 FM team, family and friends a heartfelt sigh of relief!), a group of the newly engaged couple’s closest friends and family, including Marcel’s mother, joined the beaming pair to celebrate with some bubbly followed by a breakfast at Reuben’s courtesy of the One and Only.
To round off this picture perfect engagement, the One and Only Resort Cape Town have given the couple an engagement gift to celebrate their union in a more romantic, intimate way, this includes the following delights guaranteed to add romance to any occasion:
· 1 x night at the One and Only Resort Cape Town;
· A dinner and wine pairing at Reuben’s restaurant;
· 2 x 50 minute signature massages at the One and Only award winning spa.
Smile 90.4FM will also be providing the couple with an engagement shoot and make-up and hair for Carien.
