Our Perfect Wedding featured Bongani and Zandile on Sunday 31 May 2015. The epic wedding was a climax of two lovers who met when they were young. Down by the riverside, Bongani met a young schoolgirl who would become his wife. When time permitted, he sent lobola cows to her father and made it happen. Zandile and Bongani are both traditional spiritual healers!
The Zulu culture was the theme of the wedding as they performed strict Zulu rituals including makoti carrying a knife even to the wedding photo shoot! We believe they will last long as a couple because they both believe the same thing.
Bongani and Zandile had their perfect wedding in Eshowe, KwaZulu Natal and here are some pictures from their epic traditional wedding.
Zandile’s dress is embellished with bedazzled feathers and delicate diamantes
Speaking of a nicely dressed groom. Bongani thought he might just outshine the bride in his suit!
Red and white are the colours of the day; chosen by the bride, but resonating with the groom and his loving nature. What do you think?
The couple’s fruit cake will be eaten on the first birthday of their first child born in wedlock. Would you keep your wedding cake that long?
Sealed with a kiss; Mrs and Mrs Mhlongo. Isn’t it cute how bashful Zandile is?
Because Zandile arrived at the groom’s home after dawn, she was fined.
Zandile didn’t join Tumi(TV Host) in the last minutes preparations. Custom dictated that she stay indoors until the day of the wedding
Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Mhlongo. A few hiccups along the way, but a unique and perfect wedding they had.
