Thanks to google and wedding cakes blogs, I was able to put together all the above wedding cakes on Blushing Makoti… I hope you found your dream wedding cake idea form the above cakes…
I thought I would share this quick preview of Mankoana and Nzuzo White Wedding Pics with you, as we covered her traditional wedding a few months ago plus it has had great feedback from our brides to be. An update of Mankoana full wedding will follow later this week….
How did you meet you Prince Charming?
Our love story is a simple one that was initiated through a friend of mine and my fiancé’s niece. Through their friendship our love journey was sparked and as they say…..the rest is history.
How did Nzuzo propose to you?
Two years later, under the assumption that I was planning his 30th birthday celebration I happily went about planning the perfect evening for him, making sure that our close family and friends were there to share this special moment with him.
On the night the guests started to arrive and the celebrations proceeded. Closer to the end of the night his sister requested him to say his vote of thanks to the guests but before doing that she asked that I stand up next to him so that she could take a photo of us. As I stood next to him, about to strike a pose, he did the unexpected….went down on one knee and popped the question, leaving me in an emotional but amazing daze. He pulled out the bling and the celebrations continued……..
And then followed the beautiful, well planned Traditional wedding….
Tells us about the planning of the traditional wedding…
Planning my traditional wedding was truly an amazing experience, being a Pedi woman I knew that my Pedi people really love great celebrations so I knew it would be a memorable day. But what was even more exciting for me was the complimentary fusion of two cultures that would take place on the day as he is Zulu. So all I envisioned for the day was loads of dancing and bright colours to compliment the joyous celebration in true African tradition. To further extend the fusion of cultures concept I also had my bridesmaids dressed in their different cultured attire and the groomsmen were in Swati attire to accommodate the Swati side of his family.
Soon to follow is the White Wedding…What theme do you have in mind?
With the traditional wedding now behind us and the white wedding ahead of us I must still say there’s nothing more incredible than an African Traditional Wedding celebration. We do still hope to capture and extend that African celebratory spirit with our “Sophiatown” themed white wedding.
Blushing Makoti Says..
Congratulations to Nzuzo and Mankoana, I loved the theme Fusion of Culture, this really makes me proud of being a real African woman. This was a well planned wedding, different and amazing….
Can’t wait to see your beautiful White Wedding themed Sophiatown, Blushing Makoti will be there to capture Mankoana’s creative out of the box idea’s. All the best to our beautiful Zulu Makoti….Alililili….
I must say this wedding was really stylish and beautiful, someone said it was “the day Soweto came to a stand still”, indeed it was. The Beautiful, stylish Nosipho looked breath taking with each and every outfit she whore on her speacial day. Emeka Muo is a very lucky man!
Blushing Makoti wishes Mr and Mrs Emeka Muo a happy, God filled, fruitful and peaceful marriage.
The sparkle of their love and friendship shined throughout the day with every element that they envisioned coming together seamlessly. It has to be one of the most emotional weddings I have ever witnessed.
Blushing Makoti wishes Lesego and Nathi, a happy and joy filled life together and most important God grace.

Today Blushing Makoti feature’s one of the most stylish, classy, fashion conscious, humble, kind and loving makoti Faith Sibanda from Soweto.
Faith’s wedding is every girls dream, when I first saw this wedding pics, I mistaken it for a celebrity wedding. Everything was beautifully coordinated, you can tell from the amazing pics, this wedding was well planned. I loved Makoti dresses, especially the second dress. Oh my God! the second dress. I need to get Faith’s designer featured on Blushing Makoti..

South African/Mzansi weddings are getting more flamboyant. The latest wedding trend is the bride or groom arriving in a chopper…I wonder what next… I am impressed.
This wedding is every woman dream…
Blushing Makoti wishes Mr ad Mrs Sthe Gcaba a happy and peaceful marriage.
How Lerato and Tshepo met?
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
- Maya Angelou.
Our story starts on the 9th of October 2006 when our courtship officially started, thanks to an introduction by our mutual friend Aimee Noel Hartley. Thanks Aimee, we’ll owe you for the rest of our lives!
Nearly five years to the day and we’re blessed to share a relationship based on love, laughter, trust and emotional maturity. And no, it didn’t start like that. We were both young and immature when we met. It’s taken some growing up, letting go of selfish thinking and sheer determination that has moulded us. And we had to remain committed to what we had found in our togetherness, in our ‘us’, and the values we live by to get through all the ups and downs.
Some believe opposites attract. We believe that two people need to complement each other, the iron can’t be hot on both sides!
Says Lerato: “Tshepo always manages to maintain a calm composure, seemingly unaffected by the curve balls life throws, he always hopes for the best, allowing nature to run its course. Me, on the other hand, I’m known to jump right into action, grabbing the bull by the horns to get something down now, not later”.
And it is this mix of serenity and a high-volt energy that has kept the fires of our relationship burning.
