In search of adventure, along came love
Sam and Corelie are getting married at Uitsig on 25 April 2015. We can’t wait to celebrate their special day with them!
This is their story, as told by Corelie:
As some of you may know, working in hospitality as a chef is very competitive. So a few years ago I decided to expand my horizons and head to the Middle East in search of experience, inspiration, knowledge of people, food and life lessons. It didn’t cross my mind that someone else was going in search of just that too, and that I was about to meet the love of my life.
Sam and I met through a friend at a football game. Since he is a football fanatic, it was rather fitting. It turned out that we worked for the same 5 star hotel in Doha, Qatar – me in the kitchen and Sam in the front office.
A mere acquaintance grew quickly into friendship, and before we knew it we were lost in each other’s eyes. After two years of dating, getting to know each other better and exploring the world, Sam popped the question in one of our favourite restaurants in Cape Town.
We were surrounded by the whole family, which made it particularly special – and one of the best nights of our lives!
