Johannesburg – Do you hear that sound? It's called wedding bells!

Some of our favourite celebrities are getting ready to take a trip down the aisle, and we will be waiting right here for those gorgeous wedding pics to surface. 

But until then, we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane, and share some of our favourite celeb proposals. 

From helicopter rides to romantic island getaways, our local stars really know how to pull out all the stops when it comes to popping the question.  

TAKE A LOOK AT FIVE PROPOSALS THAT HAD US WEAK AT THE KNEES:

1. Amanda du-Pont and Shawn Rodriques 

Amanda’s surprise engagement to long-time boyfriend Shawn Rodriques is what dreams are made of.  

The couple were on vacation in the Maldives when Shawn dropped to one knee and asked Amanda to be his wife.  

With white sand and clear blue water surrounding them, this was definitely one of the most romantic proposals we’ve seen.
