Nonhlanhla’s Inspirational Easel
Marius’ Comments: The day was Saturday 27 November 2010 and as is inevitable, it was drawing to a close for those of us at the Kurland Pavilion. Marius had produced a magnificent affair for Lolly and Simphiwe – we’d witnessed a moving ceremony on a circular gazebo in the Garden under cover of a pristine white tent canopy and been entertained by the soothing sounds of the Garden Route Trio; enjoyed pre-drinks under spotless white parasols served in large silver ice buckets displayed on impressive plinths, and watched a professional polo game put on just for the occasion; we’d dined on a sumptuous meal in a magnificent freeform fairy-lit tent decked in white, silver and tones of green, and danced on an immaculate white dance floor in celebration…
Lolly and Simphiwe’s friends say it best:
Amanda: The mood nana was priceless… and we created a new version of what I call west meets Africa – Joziwood glam with a taste of rural.
Zola: The atmosphere was one of a grand event, celebratory, comfortable and magical. It sent the message that you really wanted to celebrate your marriage with everyone.
Buly: Electrifying and inspiring… makes a man want to find a wife.
Siphe: A grand vibey event of over 200 guests with extreme elegance, as the day was characterised with the combined beauty of weather, décor, entertainment, food, people and the venue itself. The ceremony started late afternoon and was outdoor and the reception was magnificent and radiated the character of the newlyweds – two stylish, vibrant, disciplined and loving people.
Shumi: It was whaaaaaaaawh
Chumi: For me, it was the most beautiful and dignified ceremony I have ever been to. I could actually see the joy and happiness radiating from each and every person; it was a blessed day
Phiwo: Your and Mpampa’s wedding was elegant, beautiful, classy – a simple echo of yourselves in that the tone was quiet yet lively, loving, up-market but comfortable. The generosity of your hearts and thankfulness was reflected in the detailed planning, the limitless food, drinks and music; the people who were there mirrored the love for people, family and life which the two of you have; it was glamorous but very real – you both looked so content, happy, at peace and very much in love.
Melumzi: Blown away, fantastic and definitely ‘Wedding of the Century’.
Lolly had been blessed with the day she had wished for: a modern, memorable, magical occasion where her and Simphiwe’s love and devotion to each was evident and their friends spoilt, a celebration of the journey they had taken together and their decision to unite forever.
And Lolly herself could manage no more than: Ohhh, what a day!!
