If you’ve never gotten the opportunity to travel the whole of South Africa, do not fear when Our Perfect Wedding is near. The show will expose you to places you’ve never even heard of.
Case in point, this past Sunday we were taken to Mpumalanga’s small dorpie Amersfoort, to witness the union of Calvin Ledwaba (45) and Nonhlanhla Khumalo (31)
On their wish list, the couple wanted to see things sail smoothly with their decor, the wedding gown and groom’s suit.
Speaking of decor, their chosen colours were dusty pink for the ladies and maroon and white for the gents. The couple also wanted a glass theme, with a touch of pink.
The two met at a mall when Nonhlanhla was out wiAnd how awkward was it when the pastor said to the groom, “God gave you a rod, use it.” I mean. What? Shook.
The wedding party had to be excused from the ceremony because the bride can’t get to the Ledwaba headquarters after dark, in Limpopo.
Day two of the weekend wedding was a special one. There was even a stage erected, with Calvin dubbing the day as real wedding day. “yesterday was just a warm up,” he said.
The program director was comedian SchoolBoy and performances came from Janisto and CK, a popular Limpopo act.
The wedding party was transported in limo rides to take their pictures before the wedding reception took place. The day wouldn’t be complete without the Sepedi dancers.
Changing into their traditional attire, the couple wore white with touches of traditional patterns.
th her friends and Calvin went to buy office stationery. “while doing my shopping I decided to sit for a while and relax. Then I saw this lovely lady and decided to try my luck,” said Calvin.
They exchanged numbers and continued their communication via phone calls.
Prior to their meeting, Calvin had been single for 13 months after losing his wife.
“I was shocked when Calvin proposed but I happy as well because that had never happened to me before,” said Nonhlanhla.
