Gospel mu­si­cian Takie Ndou’s spe­cial day.

COU­PLE Takalani Rathando and Takie Ndou VENUE Light­house Chris­tian Church, Nzhelele, Lim­popo BUD­GET Not avail­able GUESTS 1300

She cried when he pro­fessed his love to her in front of friends, fam­ily and church elders, says Midrand-based gospel mu­si­cian Takie Ndou (33) as he re­calls propos­ing to Takalani Rathando (26), an in­ter­nal au­di­tor. “It was in church where we have fel­low­ship to­gether.” And the wed­ding day in Lim­popo was filled with spe­cial mem­o­ries. “Her walk down the aisle was breath­tak­ing,” he says. And his bride sur­prised him with Venda vows. “I was not ex­pect­ing that as she usu­ally speaks English, it was very spe­cial.”

The bride loved their re­cep­tion dance. “The night be­fore the wed­ding I found the per­fect song to dance to by Venda rap­per Mizo Phyll. It goes, “Na­musi ndo mala, ndo nanga ndo fhedza, ndo nanga Takalani (to­day I have mar­ried, I have made my de­ci­sion, I’ve mar­ried Takalani).” She loved that it had her name in it. “One would swear it was writ­ten for us.”
