Min­nie be­comes Mrs Jones in own movie

The Sunday Independent - - FRONT PAGE - AN­DREW ROBERT­SON

TV PER­SON­AL­ITY Min­nie Dlamini of­fi­cially be­came Mrs Jones when she mar­ried tele­vi­sion pro­ducer Quin­ton in a star-stud­ded cer­e­mony at the lux­u­ri­ous Lourens­ford Wine Es­tate in Som­er­set West near Cape Town yes­ter­day.

Some of the guests who wit­nessed the love birds ty­ing the knot were Somizi Mh­longo, Unathi ac­tress Jes­sica Nkosi, TV per­son­al­ity Anele Mdoda , Liesl Lau­rie, Eu­phonik, DJ Sox and Jes­sica Mo­taung.

Dlamini wore a veil and a long white dress with her hair in a low bun.

Jones wore a black suit with a white shirt.

The theme of the wed­ding was all white. In keep­ing with that, the re­cep­tion was de­tailed in all white decor.

Af­ter the cer­e­mony, the Jones’s went into the vine­yards for their wed­ding photo ses­sion while guests min­gled, sipped cham­pagne and en­joyed oys­ters and other de­li­cious canapés.

Guests were heard say­ing “cham­pagne dar­ling, cham­pagne”, a term coined by Bo­nang Matheba, who was not in at­ten­dance.

In the re­cep­tion area, the cou­ple were seated on trans­par­ent chairs with a white ta­ble, can­dles and flow­ers.

Guests were treated to a four-course meal on gold trimmed white plates and there was a posh late night braai sta­tion.

The Jones’s were also film­ing their three-part re­al­ity show based on the wed­ding ti­tled Min­nie Dlamini: Be­com­ing Mrs Jones.

The can­did se­ries doc­u­ments the ins-and-outs of the wed­ding plan­ning process, the wardrobes and the tra­di­tional and western cui­sine. The re­al­ity show will start off with the tra­di­tional wed­ding and will fi­nally cul­mi­nate in the white wed­ding.

The cou­ple trav­elled across South Africa in the process of putting their spe­cial oc­ca­sion to­gether.

Min­nie com­mented on star­ring in and pro­duc­ing the show: “It is not a re­al­ity show, but more a three-part docu-se­ries.

“It’s my jour­ney, told through my eyes, my way.

“Pro­duc­ing the show helped me main­tain con­trol of the cre­ative process through­out.

“The pro­duc­tion is deeply per­sonal and I can’t wait to share it with the coun­try, as I step into my new role of be­ing Mrs Jones.”

Somizi posted on In­sta­gram: “In my head I’m prac­tis­ing for my wed­ding day. I can’t imag­ine the joy and all the great emo­tions @min­nied­lamini is feel­ing right now.

“We are all here to wish u noth­ing but the best. To­day it’s all about love.”

South African ra­dio DJ Criselda Kananda, who was also at the wed­ding, added: “This is it @min­nied­lamini and @squinzo (Quin­ton Jones).

“It’s your day, your be­gin­ning of for­ever, you chose love.

“Choose to love each other, even in those mo­ments when you strug­gle to like each other.

“Love is a com­mit­ment, not a feel­ing. May this day bring you and your fam­ily many mag­i­cal mo­ments.”
