We met on the 26th of May 2005 at Soshanguve through a mutual friend. This was after I had been receiving messages through the friend for almost 6 months that he liked me and wanted to meet me, but I just never took it seriously. They eventually tricked me into meeting him on that day. Well let’s just say I did not like him even after meeting him and yet 2 weeks later I decided to go on a date with him and the rest is history.
We are blessed with a daughter Koketso and a son Aobakwe.
The proposal was just so like him, “ no candle lit dinner and engagement ring in the champagne glass”. He just woke up one morning and said “ke batla go ntsha magadi well I was shocked, then we took the step of telling both our mothers who then took the process further.
Lobola was paid on the 18th of January 2014 and the 13th and 14th of December 2014 were set as the dates for the big celebration. We wanted a venue wedding but our families would not have that, since we are both first born children. After much arm twisting, and pleading, the elders from both families, agreed to at least give us our dream garden ceremony, with both our receptions being at our respective homes.
After almost 12 months of planning , our wedding day was fun filled which is in line with our characters. We had family, friends and colleagues from near and far which just added the cherry on top.
It has not been an easy journey getting to where we are today but through God, our families and most of all our love for each other we conquered all. Thank you to all those who came to witness our union and enjoy our wedding days with us, thank you to our families for being our pillars of strength and a big thank you to all our service providers for their great craftsmanship and reliability.
A special thanks to my wonderful groom for the bridesmaids first dresses(infinity) and the Tswana outfits for the bridesmaids and groomsmen (blue and white Shwe shwe attires), all those sleepless nights were all worth it…..
