Our Perfect Wedding featured Siyabonga and Nhlanhla on 13 September 2015. The beautiful wedding was the capstone of a relationship that started with being annoyed.

How they met
Isn't it funny how that one person that annoys or angers you more than anything can end up being one of the closest people to you? That's how Nhlanhla and Siya's love story started.

Someone else wanted to pay lobola for her!
Siya's blood boiled when he heard that someone went ahead of him to try to negotiate lobola with Nhlanhla's father. It made him realise he needed to move fast to marry her.

Preparations
The couple is very troubled to hear that the cake they've never tasted, has brandy in it. As devout members of the Nazareth Baptist Church, they are forbidden from indulging in alcohol.opw3

There seem to be a lot of decor surprises in store for the couple. Can the decor lady be trusted or does she seem unprepared?

The Big Day
So these are the surprises the decor lady was talking about? Incorrect and insufficient tables, a missing cake stand and food being served on the floor? Nonhlanhla is not amused!

  • This is Daily Sun's coverage of the wedding

    “Our Perfect Wedding” yesterday was not so perfect.

    We were introduced to a humble and soft spoken Orange Farm couple - Nonhlanhla Ngema (25), the bride, (25) and Siyabonga Zulu (28) the groom.

    The guy had a long beard because of his Shembe religion that permits men from shaving.

    But many wondered if Nonhlanhla had bushy armpits because of their religion.

    Sbu was a taxi driver who transported a group of people to work and his soon-to-be wife was one of them.

    Nonhlanhla was a problematic passenger who was always late and was always left behind.

    Sbu was curious about the lady who never made it on time for the transport and so one day she arrived at 6am on the dot and made it in time to leave for work so they met.

    His plan was to shout at her and tell her about her late coming ways but when he saw her he got weak in the knees.

    He said he was charmed by her beauty, respect and humility.

    Although the back story is great, the actually wedding was boarding on disaster.

    Their wishlist was:

    - Cake

    - Wedding Dress

    - Bridesmaid dresses

    - Deco

    - Suits

    1.First of all, the wedding cake...
    The cake was bought at Oriental plaza in Fordsburg, Jozi.

    The fruit cake looked nice and well put together but the store had no samples for the couple to taste and they both said that they had no idea what a fruit cake looked or tasted like.

    The shocker was when the Shembe groom found out that the cake had brandy because his religion does not allow him to take any alcohol.

    2.The deco
    The deco lady promised them the moon and the stars. Before the wedding day, she set up the deco so that they could see how everything would look like on the wedding day.

    The couple were impressed because she stuck to their purple, white and touch of bling theme.

    The bride asked how the main table would look like, the deco lady simply said it will be a surprise.

    The big surprise on the day was that the marquee had no astro turf (green carpet) so the tables were set on brown soil.

    She had to bring round tables and discussed but instead she brought a few trestle tables that would not seat the expected 100 guests.

    The food was set on the floor because there were not enough tables so the guests were dishing up from the dusty Orange Farm ground.

    People were told The Soil will be at the wedding kanti they were referring to the dust.

    The cake ended up sitting on the “surprise” main table, hiding the couple from their guests.

    3.Attires
    The attires were all on point. The groom does not believe in wasting any money. He wanted all the outfits to be rented out because they would not be wearing them again.

    The wedding dress was beautiful, it fit her well and she was confident as she walked down the aisle.

    Even the bridesmaid and groomsmen were looking dapper.

    The highlights of the wedding were the traditional attires, the dances and festivities.

    This was the kind of wedding where you realise that love conquers all, despite everything that happened the couple are still in love, they are now married and the wedding hiccups will be like a bad dream for them.
