Lesego and Nathi’s Wedding

22 Nov Blushing Makoti Lesego
I take of my hat and applaud the wedding planner Precious Tumisho Thamaga owner of Precious Celebration: Event Planning/Event Specialist. Thanks to Precious, Lesego and Nathi for sharing their wedding with us.Nathi and Lesego got married on the 30th September 2011 at River Place Country Estate.L&N wanted a venue with gardens, mountain and river views from all angles to have their dream outdoor wedding experience and River Place was just perfect. Lesego’s father walked her down the aisle with Liquideep’s Fairytale (slow version), what a beautiful and emotional ceremony as she also took a moment of silence for her late younger brother.

The sparkle of their love and friendship shined throughout the day with every element that they envisioned coming together seamlessly. It has to be one of the most emotional weddings I have ever witnessed.

Blushing Makoti wishes Lesego and Nathi, a happy and joy filled life together and most important God grace.

You can never go wrong with Zulu traditional attire

13 Sep

The one traditional attire thats always stood out is the Zulu traditional dresses, you go to a traditional or white weddings and any traditional function they will be at least over 30% of people wearing it in different style, modern or the old traditional style.

As a Tswana girl getting married to a Zulu man, I was excited, because I knew with the Zulu traditional attire you can never go wrong. But when my turn came, I got worried if my mother in-law will buy me the right colors, or wondered if it wont be too long or if it will suit me, I just had a lot of concerns. I didn’t want to ask her before time because I didn’t want her to think “keya phapha”(I am forward). When it was time for her to dress me up on the traditional wedding day, I was stunned and I almost jumped off my seat. Because she had got me what I didn’t expect, the most beautiful, amazing and stylish/modern Zulu traditional dress, with my favourite colors. I excitedly told my friends that my Mamazala(mother in-law) has style.

I thought I should would share some amazing Zulu brides pictures, including Zuma brides, Sonia Sedibe, Black Coffee’s bride and Ngamla’s bride pictures Zanele Mbokazi and Blushing Makoti’s blogger, the beautiful me…

Zanele Mbokazi’s Topnotch Wedding

24 Aug

Zanele Mbokazi or should I say the fashionista, the author, the show maker or the preacher, or the business woman. All I can say is she is blessed and is one of the top women that inspires me to go an extra mile.

What a well planned  wedding, from the bride to decor and not to mention the vintage-royal theme and colors. I loved everything about this wedding. The brides wedding gown, took my breath away. I must say I take my hat off to the wedding planners and Zanele the Fashionista, indeed she is a woman with style…Her wedding is every woman’s fairy tale dream

I wanted to share some pictures from the net and friends, including Zanele Mbokazi’s website: www.zanelembokazi.com

Mzansi Traditional wedding

23 Jul

A mzansi traditional wedding is a ceremony done after the lobola negotiation. I personally think, a traditional wedding is a must, so that we stay in touch with where we come from as africans.

What fascinates me about the ceremony is the umbeso (exchange of gift) in this instance the family of the groom goes to the family of makoti’s/bride’s house to meet the family and present them with gifts, dress their Makoti/bride with their cultural attire. For example if a Tswana girl is getting married to a Zulu man, the grooms family will dress her in the Zulu attire, to mark that she now belongs to familt and she is now a Zulu married woman. Another one is the slaughtering of the goat and makoti’s family will give half of the sheep to the grooms family.

Then they will be dancing and singing in the streets, to wish makoti/bride well. I really enjoyed the singing and dancing, especially the night before when the grooms family came and sang outside my family home, while i was seating in a room and waiting for the game  to start of choosing the groom among three man covered in blankets…
