Thotyelwa is a warm, soft spoken lady, with a gentle calmness about her and Ronnie is the most jovial person ever with a huge personality. They compliment each other perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day, sunny with blue skies and whispering cirrus clouds. We met Ronnie early in the morning on the N2, on our way to Berlin  to photograph Thotyelwa preparing at her mom’s home. Ronnie met us on the highway surprised us when he stepped out of his vehicle donning his PJ’s, a thick white robe with the wording “The Groom” embroidered on, and wearing matching white slippers with the same engraving. Only Ronnie could pull that off with his super cool personality, much to our delight. When we arrived later at the venue, guests were seated at the Gazebo at Gonubie Manor, sheltering themselves from the hot sun under cream parasols. They were being wonderfully entertained by an accordionist and trumpeter. I was pleased to see that Pastor OT from the Seventh Day Adventist Church was the ceremony officiator. Ronnie looked handsome in his blue suit and checkered waistcoat. Thotyelwa wore one of the most stunning dresses I had ever seen, an ivory bridal satin creation with exquisite laced sleeves and a detailed buttoned-up back. The day ran smoothly from beginning to end. There were many endearing moments which touched me. One was when Ronnie and Pastor T gave a hearty hug after signing the register and how Ronnie tenderly touched Thotyelwa’s chin before kissing her. Throughout the day Ronnie looked like he was bursting with happiness, which was so evident in their photos, and Thotyelwa proved how proud she was to be Mrs. Matabese, because every now and then she would wave her hand to the crowd to show off her stunning wedding ring. Thank you Leigh, my friend and second shooter, for being as awesome as always.
