She’s always loved the idea of a glitzy yet vintage wedding, incorporating her favourite colour, gold. And that’s exactly what Anele (24) got when she wed her high school sweetheart, Noah (28), in a gorgeous affair in White River, Mpumalanga.
After seven years of dating, the KwaZuluNatal couple got engaged two years ago, on Anele’s birthday. She was pregnant with their now one-year-old daughter, Thandolwethu, at the time.
“I was six months pregnant and my hormones were raging when he arrived home late that day,” she says. “But he brought lots of chocolates (my biggest pregnancy craving) and before I could say a word, he was down on one knee, presenting me with a ring. Who could say no to a tall, dark, handsome, Swati man?”
