Michele with an accent

Yesterday my girlfriend and I were guests at Michele and Ian's wedding.

While waiting for the bride to make her entrance, I was flicking through the order of service and noticed that Michele was actually Michèle.

"I didn't know Michèle had an accent," I whispered to my girlfriend.

"Yes, she's from South Africa
," she replied.

"Is that how they spell Michele in South Africa?" I asked.

Cue much confusion on both sides...
