Louise’s dreamy fairy­tale af­fair.

Seven years af­ter they met as in­ter­na­tional stu­dents at a Malaysian univer­sity, Ge­orge (30) and Louise (29) Akande mar­ried on the pic­turesque Stel­len­bosch wine farm, MolenVliet.

The cou­ple, who now live in Dubai, ex­changed vows dur­ing an out­side cer­e­mony, and Louise, a sales man­ager orig­i­nally from Tan­za­nia, says see­ing how emo­tional her groom got dur­ing his vows was her favourite part of the day. “Louise, I never knew the true mean­ing of love un­til I fell in love with you. Lov­ing you has been the great­est jour­ney I’ve ever trav­elled in my life,” Ge­orge, a busi­ness­man orig­i­nally from Nige­ria, said in his vows.

See­ing Louise walk­ing down the aisle to­wards him will stay with him for­ever, he says. Louise had dreamt of a fairy­tale wed­ding with an “en­chant­ing” theme and that’s what she got.
