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)
