Chwayita kept her wed­ding sim­ple and stylish.

Not even gale-force winds 30 min­utes be­fore their Jozini cer­e­mony in KZN could stop East Lon­don cou­ple Mil­ton (37) and Chwayita (33) Manzini from hav­ing the per­fect day.

The cer­e­mony was set to be held on a jetty at Lake Jozini, but it was bashed around by the wind, caus­ing the canopy to tear and chairs, um­brel­las and car­pets to blow into the wa­ter.

The venue staff tried two dif­fer­ent set-ups and when Chwayita saw the third spot – the out­side up­per deck over­look­ing the Le­bombo moun­tains – she breathed a sigh of re­lief.

From then on, ev­ery­thing went smoothly. “Walk­ing down the aisle, see­ing Mil­ton’s face, ev­ery­thing I’d dreamed of un­folded in front of my eyes,” says the happy bride. For Mil­ton, “the mo­ment of truth” was real­is­ing Chwayita “was go­ing to be mine ... for­ever”.
