“Love is always hiding in the most unexpected corners,” said Tumi after last week’s wedding. “Who knows? You could also go out to buy a car and come back with a brand new husband or wife.”

It turns out, Andile and Vuyelwa, aren’t the only ones who met in an unexpected way. Many celebs had no idea that they would be meeting ‘the one’ when they did.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had no idea that their time on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith would bring them closer together. "It took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realize that it might mean something more than we'd earlier allowed ourselves to believe," Jolie said in an interview with Vogue Magazine in 2006.

In 2004, Kanye West was in studio with Brandy recording their hit “Talk About Our Love”. Kim Kardashian was working as an assistant to Brandy at the time. But the couple remained friends for nine years before tying the knot. In 2010 Kanye helped Kim with her music video and two years later the two were spotted sitting in the front row at the New York Fashion Week. Later that year they announced that they would be having a baby together.

Jada Pinket met her future husband, Will Smith, at a Fresh Prince of Bel Air audition when she was 19. It was only years later at dinner with mutual friends that Jada saw something in Will. “I saw that he had grown from this lanky kid to this really responsible man. We started courting each other and our friendship turned into romance," she says.

Despite being one of the world’s most talked about couples, Beyonce and Jay Z have managed to keep a lot of details about their private life hidden. The two met in the music scene and started dating when Beyonce was 19 years old. In 2012 they recorded “Bonnie And Clyde” but they remained silent amidst rumours that they were dating. The paparazzi continued to snap shots of them together at various events while they continued to share the stage in performances of the duets they produced. In April 2008, the couple had a secret wedding in New York and in 2011 Beyonce announced her pregnancy at the MTV Video Music Awards.
