REAL WEDDINGS REAL WEDDINGS

Where and how did you meet? Kgomotso: We met at Thato’s 21st birthday party; I went with a friend of mine. Thato interrogated me about my hair, which was apparently too gorgeous to be mine. We exchanged numbers and met up a few weeks later for numerous long picnics – the rest, as they say, is history. Thato: We met a few months before my birthday; Kgomotso doesn’t remember that. How did he propose? We were on holiday at a Game Lodge and Spa in Bela Bela. It was a very intimate and private moment. Please provide a short description of your wedding day. K: The theme for the wedding was ‘love is’; we wanted the wedding to be soft, romantic, whimsical and dreamy but still natural with no bling. It was a celebration of our love, with our closest family and friends. T: Kgomotso is a stickler for order and structure, so everyone knew their role and Oakfield wedding venue did not disappoint. If you could change one thing about your wedding day, what would it be? Absolutely nothing. It was exactly what we wanted. What was the highlight of your day? K: The wedding ceremony. Walking down the aisle on my father’s arm, seeing my mom’s teary eyes, walking towards the man that I absolutely adore and being surrounded by friends and family. The vows www.nubianbride.co.za |
