There is nothing like seeing your favourite celebrity tying the knot and making their love for each other known.

This year, we saw some beautiful traditional weddings and a very unique spin to tradition from Somhale. These two made 2019 their year to own, when they announced that their wedding would be produced and shown on ShowMax, with their own wedding special- Somizi and Mohale: The Union which obviously got the whole of South Africa talking about what was soon to be dubbed the wedding of the century.

All in all, our couples outdid themselves this year and had the streets talking.

Somizi and Mohale 

The couple had a very unusual spin to their traditional wedding, but it worked wonders for the couple. Dubbed the wedding of the century, Somhale had five wedding outfits and each look setting the bar higher than the previous. Their Egyptian style outfits were breathtaking and it was all Gert-Johan Coetzee’s doing. 

One thing that potentially took the spotlight away from the couple for a split second were the wedding cakes. Another element of their wedding that got social media users glued to their Instagram were the outfits worn by their guests.

The preparations for the white wedding are underway and it promises to be bigger and better.

Dineo Moeketsi and Solo Langa 

The couple did the noble thing of sharing the precious moments from their wedding with fans. Their wedding docuseries 'Kwakuhle Kwethu' was broadcasted on 1Magic and then Mzansi Magic. The couple opted for an outdoor wedding at the Forum Embassy Hill, Cape Town. The dashing bride changed into a second dress for the reception and looked just as amazing.

Kwesta and Yolanda Mvelase 

A very intimate wedding for Kwesta and long-term partner was what we witnessed on his his hit song Khethile Khethile. Held at the Thaba Eco Hotel in Johannesburg, it included only family and close friends. Including some of Kwesta’s celebrity friends.


Bontle Modiselle and Priddy Ugly 

Their intimate traditional wedding came as a shock to many because they did not announce anything. Rick Jade really knew how to keep everything a secret to allow their family and friends to thoroughly enjoy the auspicious event. 

They have been together for 10 years and apparently Priddy proposed in 2015 when he was just a student. In 2018, he paid lobola and just when they could afford it, Rick Jade made it official.

Nomsa Buthelezi 

The traditional wedding saw Nomsa and her bride saying their ‘I do’s’ the same weekend as Somhale and Rick Jade. The beautiful wedding, according to Nomsa, was going to be attended by people close to them and people who supported their relationship. Unlike any other bride, her sole focus was not on the dresses, food, décor and hair... No! Hers was on the fact that people who deserved to be there were there.
