Michelle’s sister, Sheree-Lee Gildenhuys, was her bridesmaid and wore a champagne-coloured silk dress covered in black lace, also a design by Diaan. “My sister looked breathtaking in the dress. We both love wearing black. It’s always classic and elegant,” Michelle says. Diaan also designed a black suit for Sury Boltman, Emo’s best man and best friend for the past 15 years. Emo and Sury belonged to the Cape Town singing group JAG and Sury travelled from Amsterdam in the Netherlands to attend the wedding.
