Tele­vi­sion and ra­dio per­son­al­ity Zizo Beda is now mar­ried. Beda walked down the aisle on Fri­day be­fore say­ing “I do” to her long­time part­ner, home af­fairs de­part­ment spokesper­son May­ihlome Tsh­wete, at the St Saviour’s Angli­can Church in East Lon­don.

Tsh­wete is the son of the for­mer safety and se­cu­rity min­is­ter Steve Tsh­wete and cur­rent deputy wa­ter and san­i­ta­tion min­is­ter Pam Tsh­wete.

Daily Dis­patch re­ported yes­ter­day that there was tight se­cu­rity at the wed­ding venue be­cause of the high-pow­ered guest list, which in­cluded Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma, Home Af­fairs Min­is­ter Malusi Gi­gaba and Water Af­fairs Min­is­ter Nomvula Mokonyane.

A wed­ding pro­gramme posted by ra­dio per­son­al­ity Lupi Ng­cay­isa showed that Zuma was one of the speak­ers at the re­cep­tion, held at Gonu­bie Manor.

Other guests at the lav­ish but in­ti­mate wed­ding were ANC spokesper­son Zizi Kodwa and for­mer po­lice com­mis­sioner Bheki Cele.

Beda and Tsh­wete have ap­par­ently been dat­ing for more than three years. But their af­fair was con­firmed only in Au­gust last year, when Tsh­wete posted on his Twit­ter page a pic­ture of the pair show­ing off their “en­gage­ment rings”.

While the new­ly­weds tried to keep their nup­tials pri­vate, some of their guests couldn’t help but share the wed­ding pic­tures on so­cial me­dia.

Some pho­tos showed that Pol Roger Cham­pagne was flow­ing at the re­cep­tion. A bot­tle of this French bub­bly costs about R700.

Another photo, of the blush­ing bride be­ing as­sisted by one of her brides­maids af­ter step­ping out of a white Mercedes-Benz out­side the church, was cir­cu­lat­ing on so­cial me­dia on Fri­day night. She was dressed in a flow­ing, white, off-the-shoul­der gown with mesh sleeves. Her face was cov­ered in an em­bel­lished veil. The groom opted for a clas­sic look – a navy and black tuxedo.
