Happy Easter weekend lovelies. Before you head off for good Friday festivities let me share this modern traditional wedding. I first saw this wedding on Instagram via Creative Brides account. Zaza’s dress struck me by how beautifully designed it looked and thought to myself she looked Bontlefied (made up so don’t look it up in the dictionary). Honestly, I have to applaud Felicia Mensah (the designer) for doing such a good job.
After a long, long wait and a long-lost love, Zaza and her husband found their way back to each other. Here’s their story; heartfelt beautiful moments at the wedding and a heartbreaking realisation at the end. Zaza may God give you double for what you’ve lost my darling.
The Love Story
We were staying in the same building called Drakensberg flats, Pretoria. We met at the gate when I was coming back from school, he greeted me, and that was it. A year later he left the country to go to the UK. He promised to come back after 6 months and I must wait for him. I waited the whole 6 months he never came back. I waited another six months but he never came back, so I moved on with my life. We met again after a few years and he still felt the same, 3 months after, he said to me, I am not going to let you go again. He paid Lobola.
A Modern Traditional Wedding
The Planning Process
We planned the wedding in 2 months, I was my own wedding planner, and it was not difficult for me as I do events. What a great journey for me.
What are you looking forward to in married life?
Looking forward to having more and more babies, last year we lost a 4-year-old beautiful boy, he drowned in the pool so; ya. Only God knows.
Bontle: I’m so sorry Zaza, may the Lord heal and give you beauty for ashes. Wishing you and your family tremendous blessings.
