Ayanda Ballensiefen dazzles in a trio of dresses

 Financial dynamo Ayanda Ballensiefen dazzles in a trio of Spanish, Hollywood and Xhosa inspired dresses she wore for her wedding to Ben Ballensiefen.

 Ayanda Ballensiefen is a high flyer in financial services who is intent on growing opportunities for young, South African women entrepreneurs. Her dedication to education is one she gets from her parents who studied journalism and law, while Ayanda was raised by her grandmother in Soweto.

When she isn’t in New York being recognized as a “Rising Star” in Business Diversity, the other big story of Mrs. Ballensiefen’s life has been her wedding and the dresses she wore.

The dress draws inspiration from Spain, one of Ayanda and her husband Ben’s favourite destinations.

Following a Catholic ceremony held in and around a castle outside Berlin, the bride changed looks for the party to come.

As significant to the couple as the ceremony in Germany, was their traditional wedding held in their hometown. Where Vuyokazi Bodlani created this celebration of Xhosa design.

At the home of the bride’s parents, we found friends and family still buzzing with excitement, what a match the couple make. It was Ben’s work in telecoms and data science which brought him to South Africa - and then Cupid struck.

Professionally, Ayanda is now a member The Leadership Council of the Harvard University Centre for African Studies. Personally, she’s wed the man of her dreams. Life is good.
