Rikus and Clarisse are two of the nicest people you will ever get to meet.  Their willingness to trek up a mountain, strewn with more baboons than I have seen in my entire life, to get really awesome engagement photos, was just amazing!  I don’t think the climb bothered Clarisse much as she is quite fit.  The rest of us: not so fit.  #sightforsoreeyes

Being surrounded by many, maaaaany baboons, is quite a bit of an adrenaline rush, at best.  Even after a rangers calmly inform you, with a grin on his face, that they are ‘not that bad with people.’

These two will be celebrating their wedding day at Anderland early in 2018.  I am quite excited to see what Clarisse comes up with.  She’s been sending me some of her decor ideas and the fact that she also has an Edwardian style ring (so do I) tells me that I am going to love her style!  Rikus proposed with a stunning rose gold, Edwardian desing ring.  The classical design suits this real life Snow White beauty perfectly.
