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.”
