Minnie becomes Mrs Jones in own movie
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.”
