Given Mahlangeni and Mandisa Mdingi’s Wedding

On the morning of September 2003 Given Mahlangeni was on the way to the bus stop to take a taxi to work, while he was standing waiting for the taxi there was this young lovely beautiful woman standing at the same bus stop also waiting to catch a taxi to town. When the taxi arrived we both took the same taxi and he wasn’t sure if she is going to town or she will jump somewhere before town but he told himself that once she gets out of the taxi he will follow her, he said to himself that he would rather be late at work.

He was quoted saying “I was scared to talk to her in front of commuters because I thought she will chase me away.
When the taxi arrived to town she jump out of the taxi and I started to follow her right away until she get to her work place and she was greeting some people at the entrance which I believed were her colleagues. I asked one the guys that where standing at the entrance if he knew her and the guy replied yah and I asked what’s the name of that lady? – he told me that is Mandisa Mdingi and I asked the guy again, do you have her phone number but he refused to give me and suggested that I must call the reception and I ask.

I took the reception number and I left, when I was at work I called the reception number and I asked for Mandisa Mdingi and my call was transferred to her office desk. Fortunately he picked the call and I started to introduce myself and explain the reason for my call. I told her how beautiful she was and I asked her if she could go to lunch with me on that day but she told me she has already brought something for her to eat, while we were talking on the phone I suggested another day and she agreed.

When that day come we went to lunch, start chatting and telling her again how beautiful she was and how I feel about her, she was so impressed the way I express myself and the way I admired her. After that we exchange numbers, we continued talking both day and night until she felt the same way I was feeling about her. I remember our first kiss, she went to my office for help to fax some documents because her office fax was not working then we just started to kiss each other – that’s how we fell in love deeply and we are still together and happily married.”

This is how Given Mahlangeni and Mandisa Mdingi met and the wedding took place on the 29th November 2014 at Port Edward Resort in Eastern Cape.

  25. Mandy you looked so angelic in your exquisite wedding gown, when you looked into the eyes of your tall, dark and handsome hubby,your eyes sparkled matching your smile and I thought yo myself “she looks very happy”. to both of you, may the Almighty Lord Jesus be with you through out the journey of your married life, HE alone can bring peace, tranquility, happiness and everlasting love. May you both submit to one another.

  26. Given, you looked the part of an “ideal man” tall,dark and handsome but now that doesn’t matter anymore because you must now be the “ideal husband” to your beautiful wife. Wishing you both heavenly wisdom. Your wedding day was elegant.
