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.
