DRUM Weddings - - CONTENTS -

A tra­di­tional and el­e­gant day.

Nkosekhaya Mfini (29) and Si­novuyo Msizi (30) went to the same Eastern Cape high school but only re­ally no­ticed each other on a Boy Scouts and Girl Guides tour to the Wild Coast in 2000. “She was very shy and for the three-day tour I was too scared to approach her,” Khaya says. But he even­tu­ally asked her out the next year and 15 years later the Midrand-based cou­ple cel­e­brated their wedding.

It was a com­bi­na­tion of African tra­di­tion with some Western touches, and took place at his fam­ily home in the Eastern Cape. “Not ev­ery­one mar­ries their first love,” says Sino. “That made our wedding ex­tra spe­cial.” Khaya’s twin brother, Nkoso­dumo, was in­volved in the plan­ning and sur­prised them with Bottega Gold cham­pagne dur­ing his speech, say­ing gold sym­bol­ises their love – some­thing un­break­able.
