Fifteen years after their chance meeting in a taxi, Andile (36) and Akhona (34) Mlindi from Centurion got married at Val de Vie, an elegant polo club in the Franschhoek valley. “We sat nexttoeachotherinthetaxiandhetoldmeI had the most beautiful hands,” Akhona, an events coordinator, says. “I blushed and we started chatting.” The rest is history. “Our life together has been filled with love, joy and happiness. I have always wanted him to be my husband.”
Their wedding had a polo theme to reflect the bride’s love of horses and guests were even treated to a surprise polo match. “We started the match before our photoshoot,” says Andile, an IT specialist. “It was a special moment, with music playing in the background and many of our guests said it left them speechless.”
