Just outside Stellenbosch you will find this lovely venue, Stellenrust, tucked away between the mountains and vineyards. This is where Zander & Talitha chose to get married.
They studied the same degree at Stellenbosch University; he saw her first while she was practicing dance moves for their ‘Jool’ on her residences’ lawn. They had classes together, but they were introduced by a mutual friend (Talitha’s maid of honour) and from that day onwards sparks flew 😉
This is how Talitha knew that Zander was the one for her: “When I had a realisation that the person sitting next to me was now a person I did not want to go a single day without, that God had sent me someone who exceeded even my wildest expectations and someone who I can love (and be loved by) unconditionally. When suddenly 1 Corinthians 4:13 just made sense.”
The proposal: Zander surprised Talitha while she was in Cape Town (they were both living in Gauteng at this time); he made his one friend take her out for coffee, and as they were walking along the side of the road in Campsbay – Zander was suddenly infront of her. He instructed her to close her eyes, and he led her onto a ledge. When she opened her eyes she saw the most beautiful sunset, but when she looked down the words ‘Marry Me’ was written in the sand. She said yes, with a crowd of people cheering them on!
