Chwayita and Busani (fondly nicknamed Chwai and Power) celebrated their romantic wedding day at Tandala farm outside King William’s Town. Her theme was soft pastels and shades of coral, cream and peach. Chwayita is a graceful lady with such poise, but she also has a playful, spontaneous side to her. Before we headed to the Church in KWT, we drove to her grandmother’s home in a nearby rural village for some prayers with the elders. The older folk sang and danced as she and her bridal party departed for the Church, where her handsome groom, Busani was waiting for her.
This is their love story in Chwayita’s words: “I had returned from a visit to see my mom in Pretoria, just after our anniversary and my birthday. On that day I couldn’t wait to see my love, because we hadn’t seen each other for a while. I went over to his place as soon as he was home from work. I was finishing preparing something for us to eat so that we could sit and cuddle on the couch, and as I turned, he was down on one knee with a ring in his hand and he proposed with a small diamond ring. I just looked at him and laughed because I knew and understood that he needed money for the Labola. I said yes – I knew this was the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Since that day, he has been my everything, my fiancé, my boo, my prince charming, my sweetheart and most of all, now my hubby. I call him my Power of Love”.
