DRUM Weddings - - CONTENTS -

A splash of happy pome­gran­ate.

When Sikhumbuzo Sibanda (30), a soft­ware en­gi­neer from Zim­babwe, saw his bride, Onthatile Kgadi­ete, walk down the aisle on their wed­ding day he was blown away. “I had to swal­low the lump in my throat re­ally hard to pre­vent my­self from cry­ing. It was beau­ti­ful – I doubt I will ever get to ex­pe­ri­ence a mo­ment like that in my life again.”

The cou­ple now lives in Cape Town but got mar­ried in Pre­to­ria, the home town of Thati (28), a se­nior re­tail buyer.

They fi­nalised their union with rings they se­lected care­fully – hers a rose-gold band with a cham­pagne di­a­mond sur­rounded by a dou­ble halo and di­a­monds and his a Tung­sten ring. “Khumbu chose it be­cause it is one of the strong­est met­als, show­ing the strength of our com­mit­ment to one another,” Thati says.
