LOUISE AND GEORGE
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.
