Min­nie’s deeply per­sonal doc­cie

Cape Argus - - Tonight Weekend Tv Guide -

MIN­NIE Dlamini is still the sweet golden girl that South Africans adore, the only dif­fer­ence now is that she’s mar­ried and has not only a ring, but a docu-se­ries to prove it.

The 27-year old on-air per­son­al­ity, actress and model tied the knot to her long-time beau, Quin­ton Jones last month, in a lav­ish white wed­ding in Som­er­set West in the West­ern Cape, and al­most a month later, they ready to share their spe­cial mo­ments with the rest of South Africa on #Be­com­ingMrsJones.

The three part docu-se­ries which airs to­day (Oc­to­ber 13) on Vuzu Amp, takes view­ers on a jour­ney into Dlamini’s Paris bridal show, her tra­di­tional Zulu wed­ding and her per­fect el­e­gant white wed­ding which has since been dubbed the wed­ding of the year.

“Be­com­ing Mrs Jones is a deeply per­sonal, beau­ti­fully crafted and au­then­tic doc­u­men­tary se­ries where you will see my jour­ney through my eyes and the eyes of my loved ones. We wanted to en­sure you can be part of the cel­e­bra­tion, ride the wave of emo­tions with us and for the first time, hear my story told by me – in my own words.”

The show came about when Dlamini and Jones saw the over­whelm­ing public in­ter­est when news broke about her en­gage­ment to him.

South Africans keenly fol­lowed the wed­ding fes­tiv­i­ties through pho­to­shar­ing sites – mak­ing the hash­tag one of the top trend­ing top­ics. One thing was clear – there was a yearn­ing to see more.

“There was so much love and well wishes and peo­ple want­ing to know more about the en­gage­ment and wed­ding plans, so I wanted to get the peo­ple what they wanted,” she said.

The docu-se­ries, made by Dlamini’s pro­duc­tion com­pany, is said to be a melt­ing pot of tears, ex­cite­ment, hu­mour, every colour of emo­tion imag­in­able, and ul­ti­mately, the beau­ti­ful join­ing of two fam­i­lies as we follow Dlamini and Jones through the process of plan­ning their wed­ding.

“I’m so proud of this se­ries. From be­ing the ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer, to the high-qual­ity re­sources we in­vested in the pro­duc­tion and the in­cred­i­bly tal­ented cre­atives and crew we col­lab­o­rated with.

“The re­sult is this ex­quis­ite body of work that is an hon­est and vis­ual rep­re­sen­ta­tion of my heart dur­ing the most beau­ti­ful and in­ti­mate time of my life and I’m so thrilled to be able to share it with you,” said Dlamini.

In the first episode, view­ers will get the op­por­tu­nity to get to know Dlamini through the eyes of those clos­est to her and it will in­clude the process be­hind plan­ning the wed­ding and prepa­ra­tions for the tra­di­tional and west­ern cer­e­monies.

The fol­low­ing episode will show Dlamini as she en­joys her lav­ish bach­e­lorette party in Paris with her beau­ti­ful brides­maids.

View­ers will also wit­ness her daz­zling tra­di­tional wed­ding, with a deeper look into how her Zulu cul­ture cel­e­brates mar­riage.

The fi­nal episode will fea­ture the cou­ple’s el­e­gant west­ern wed­ding set in the op­u­lent back­drop of Som­er­set West in the West­ern Cape.

This episode is the epit­ome of per­fec­tion and is the episode clos­est to Dlamini’s heart as she ends her jour­ney to #Be­com­ingMrsJones and em­braces #Be­ingMrsJones.
