This one is a beautiful love story about a Princess who was living in her Father's Kingdom doing all that pleases her Father. Then she met with a Queen from far away who told her about her son who was a Prince. The Queen arranged for the two royal prince and princess to meet and walla just like a fairy tale, the two fell inlove.

I know this sounds like a fairytale but in reality Temogo and Bongani Zondi are the children of the Most High King who is God and both have had the blessing of being raised by God. Their story is beautiful and even their wedding was of Royalty. I got to know about Mr. Zondi through his wife's beautiful writing. Check her blog

Temogo had given me the priveledge of making her bridesmaids' dresses as well as her mother's dress. Her colour was the first time I've ever heard of, cypress green. She brought me a sample of fabric to match it. I have never made so many trips for so long to find the exact colour. It was not emerald green and not even avocado, nor bottle green but cypress green. I finally found the fabric in the colour required but all different fabrics at different shops. The fabric for the dress bottom at Pay and Save in Lenasia; the tulle for the inside skirt at HRN in Lenasia on another side, the lining at Chamdor in Roodepoort and then because I could not find the lace for the top at Oriental Plaza, Market street and at 109 Plein I had to go back to HRN. I found the lace in the same colour though embroidered with a bit of gold. I also had to go back and buy cream wite ribbon for their belts.

 Mr. and Mrs Zondi's pictures were just also so breathtaking I could not choose which to post so I posted all their pictures I got from Mrs. Zondi's Album by permission.

I love this picture

Nothing beats hearing two people you have been wishing could just see they can make it together as a couple tell you they are getting married. I was so ecstatic when I heard me and my hubby's mutual friend tell us he is marrying our mutual friend and his teenhood friend. Ironically hubby and I were talking about them just a few nights before. I even looked forward to hearing the announcement of their wedding at church and anticipating the reception of the congregation. I believe 99.999% of them felt just like I did.

I was honoured to make the garments for Edwin Tshabalala and his groomsmen. Since I am not yet a wedding gown designer, my friend Tebello's dress was designed by a designer called Brenda. I can give her number if you want to contact her. She also made Tebello's bridesmaids' dresses as they had the same theme design as her gown.
The bride was so beautiful. I loved how they incorporated their personality together with her groom by wearing white converse sneakers. The groom wore a ForeverFaith Couture Irish Linen waistcoat and matching pants and two of his groomsmen wore ForeverFaith Couture Irish Linen pants with white shirts, stirrups and and mint bowties. The ladies  wore peach dresses by Brenda.

In March this year (2015) I had the blessing of designing garments for three weddings which were all on the same day. Three of the people who were getting married go to the same church as me and my husband of which two of the three, a couple, are our friends. One of the other people getting married is my former colleague although in reality we did not really work together but worked for the same company at different times.

This post is 9 months too late and it actually feels like 12 months later already because, 1. I did not know if I should write about all the weddings in one post or 3 different ones. 2. I did not have time to write anything yet because of juggling business, work-at-home mummyhood (I babysit while I work) and housekeeping. 3. I was waiting for pictures from one of the weddings which I could not attend. 4. My husband took pictures of the other wedding but I had not had time to send the pictures to the bride before I could use them.

As I write now I am busy debating in my mind if I should continue in one post for all three or write individual posts. On that thought, because a wedding is special and is about individual clients, I decided to separate them and then I will post the links here. I will just post introductory pictures of the couples here.

The first couple, Mr. Edwin Tshabalala and Mrs. Tebello Tshabalala

These two are our friends and they are best friends to each other. Their marriage to each other is not just a blessing to them but to a large number of bazalwane (christians) who for a long time hoped and probably prayed for this fairytale to come into real life. Read more about them here and see more pictures.

Couple No. Two: Mr. Bongani Zondi and Mrs. Temogo Zondi

Well here I know the bride as we go (actually went)( to the same church. Their love story is the kind you only thought you see on TV. Just like the first couple such stories (how the couple met or decided to get married) are not believed to happen in real life but in the lives of Christians they do and have a real happily ever after through Christ. Temogo is a very talented writer read about my work for them and get a link to her blog on my post.

Couple Three: Mr. Eleazer and Mrs. Wendy

I do not know how, when and where these two lovely people met but I know when, how and where I met Wendy. I knew Wendy before we met through our colleagues at my former employer, Old Mutual. When I left Old Mutual she joined the company again as she worked there before I did. I know, sounds confusing. Anyway find the story and see their beautiful pictures here: (still in process)
