The el­e­gance of a black-and-white wed­ding.

Mmanake, a civil en­gi­neer, and Tshepo Mok­itimi, a phys­io­ther­a­pist, live in Cen­tu­rion in Pre­to­ria, and met as stu­dents at the Univer­sity of Cape Town. They were friends for three years be­fore they be­gan dat­ing in 2012. Just six months later in 2013 he pro­posed on her birth­day at the Mi­ami Seaquarium in Florida, USA.

Mmanake (29) al­ways dreamt of a wed­ding in a glass mar­quee next to a river, with the day end­ing with fire­works, but she had to re­con­sider when they couldn’t find a suit­able venue. In the end they went with a theme of polo, Tshepo’s (31) favourite sport, and the Inanda Polo Room in Sand­ton was the per­fect set­ting. The black-and-white colour scheme also matched the el­e­gant theme. “It might not have been my first vi­sion for the day, but it ended up be­ing breath­tak­ing and per­fect,” the bride says.
