Nicholas Venter, 33, and his fiancé, Laetitia van den Heever, from Fontainebleau on the West Rand, have been saving for their wedding day since October last year. That is when Nicholas popped the question to the love of his life, after a relationship of three years.

She said "yes" to spending the rest of their lives together as husband and wife. They live with Laetitia’s parents and funds are few, but they decided they would save and pay for their own big day.

READ: Nicholas and Laetitia’s love story

In January this year, Nicholas started complaining of lower back pain and an ache in his one leg. He’s been building their home and suspected that he pulled a muscle. This was also the doctor’s diagnosis and he went home with pain medication. He was in the process of being registered on Laetitia’s medical aid. 

The pain increased and became unbearable and a few weeks ago, Nicholas had difficulty breathing. They rushed him to the ICU at the hospital where Laetitia works as an admin clerk. A CT scan and biopsy were done. The result was devastating - Nicholas had advanced Stage 4 Sarcoma - a very aggressive Spindle Cell Neoplasm Cancer. Both of their families were crushed. 

WedReady and MODE Weddings and Events teamed up with a list of clients to make Nicholas and Laetitia’s wedding dream come true – they got married on Saturday at 16:30!
