LIAPENG AND GREG
A happy cultural celebration.
Pretoria-based couple Gregor Schnuer (31) from Luxembourg and Liapeng Matsau (34) from Lesotho actually met in Scotland in 2008 while both were studying for their doctorates.
And when they decided to get married they went all out. They completed lobola negotiations in Pretoria and had a civil ceremony and a wedding reception in a former cloister turned boutique hotel in Luxembourg in 2014. The celebrations later culminated in a traditional wedding in South Africa at Li’s aunt and uncle’s home in Muldersdrift. They were also celebrating Li’s pregnancy with their first child.
“We wanted to show all our guests how we love each other respectfully and this love also included our friends and family, who we wanted to give a chance to get to know each other,” Greg says of their celebrations.
