15 Dec Itumeleng and Akinseye 2 December 2017 | The Rand Club
Tumi and Sappy – as we have known to call them, are what you can immediately recognise as a dynamite couple. They certainly took the Splendid Process by storm with their distinctive tenacity, love for the glamorous and brave design choices. We will always remember our wedding planning meetings with a smile.
This breathtaking South African Bride and dapper Nigerian Groom exchanged vows at the exquisite St John’s College Chapel in Houghton amid the tears of many loved ones, twenty-two-strong bridal party and heart-stopping voices of the Soweto Melodic Voices Choir.
After joyous songs of celebration rang out, the beautifully dressed guests departed to The Rand Club – a historical landmark and the oldest private member’s club in Johannesburg. There, they were greeted by old Hollywood glam at its finest – a gorgeously adorned cocktail hour and a reception ballroom filled with deep red florals and stunning gold accents.
Guests enjoyed dinner and speeches before heading down the classical spiral staircase for the cutting of a monumental seven-tier creation covered in gold leaf and handmade artisan sugar flowers. A private, candle-lit nightclub awaited as champagne flowed and guests danced well into the early hours of the morning.
