ZANELE AND NHLANHLA
Chic with burgundy touches.
Zanele Sithole was so happy but couldn’t really believe it when businessman Nhlanhla (33) asked her to marry him in 2012, after dating since 2008. “I was very excited, but I only started believing it when he sent his uncles to my family home for lobola negotiations,” says Zanele (35), a supply-chain practitioner.
The couple, who have known each other since they were teenagers, tied the knot in a weekend celebration with both a white and traditional wedding.The white wedding was held at Thandana Wedding Venue in Ladysmith, where the couple lives, and the following day they celebrated their traditional wedding at the groom’s family home, also in Ladysmith.
The bride wanted a white wedding that was simple and elegant and chose a colour scheme of cream and gold with a touch of burgundy.
