A happy cul­tural cel­e­bra­tion.

Pre­to­ria-based cou­ple Gre­gor Sch­nuer (31) from Luxembourg and Liapeng Mat­sau (34) from Le­sotho ac­tu­ally met in Scot­land in 2008 while both were study­ing for their doc­tor­ates.

And when they de­cided to get mar­ried they went all out. They com­pleted lobola ne­go­ti­a­tions in Pre­to­ria and had a civil cer­e­mony and a wed­ding re­cep­tion in a for­mer clois­ter turned bou­tique ho­tel in Luxembourg in 2014. The cel­e­bra­tions later cul­mi­nated in a tra­di­tional wed­ding in South Africa at Li’s aunt and un­cle’s home in Mul­der­s­drift. They were also cel­e­brat­ing Li’s preg­nancy with their first child.

“We wanted to show all our guests how we love each other re­spect­fully and this love also in­cluded our friends and fam­ily, who we wanted to give a chance to get to know each other,” Greg says of their cel­e­bra­tions.
