WANDA AND NHLAKANIPHO
A charming coral-and-cream wedding day.
A few things went wrong at Wanda (28) and Nhlakanipho Mhlongo’s (34) wedding at Eden Lassie in Pietermaritzburg:The DJ was late and a groomsman had to go fetch him, which made the groom late to fetch the bride (traditionally the groom fetches the bride even though they drive to the venue in separate cars). Then the cake was two hours late and it started raining straight after the ceremony.
But none of this mattered to Nhlakanipho, a property consultant, when his bride Wanda, a chartered accountant, walked down the aisle to Jennifer Hudson’s “Giving Myself Over to You” on the arm of her uncle, Makhosonke Zondi. “I thank God that this day we waited for so long has finally arrived,” the groom said. In the end it was the perfect, modern wedding the couple had planned.
