This wedding is dear to my heart. I don’t usually blog personal weddings but this time I’m making an exception. The hurdles these two had to go through to get to the altar is in itself a testament to God’s grace and mercy.
Shortly after the lobola negotiations, Thuli lost her dad. It happened suddenly and left us all shocked. To think he wasn’t there to witness this special occasion feels a little bitter-sweet. I guess he was watching from heaven with pride and admiration for his little girl. REST IN PEACE BABA.
Busi and Thuli got married at Crista Galli (a gorgeous modern wedding venue with a look if your searching for somewhere to get married) in Potchefstroom. Emotions were running high that day because Mr Bontle and I could not hold back tears on that Saturday. Living away from family robs one of such special moments. To make up for our absence, we managed to connect via wats up and Facebook live and it was as though we were there.Stunning Wedding @Crista Galli
“Our greatest challenge was the fact that we didn’t have a wedding planner. We organised the whole wedding ourselves. It is what we wanted but it was straining both emotionally and physically. However, it was the best experience ever. If I were to do it again, I would it exactly the same.
Everything went exactly as planned. The food was adequate. The weather was perfect. My dress was a dream. I cannot thank God enough. He gave us everything we prayed for.”
