The Wedding Bashers


Enjoy More Big Days in the Company of The Wedding Bashers

16 March 2018
M-Net’s original local wedding show returns with two new bashers and a lot of heart.

The bashers are back! M-Net’s popular local TV series, The Wedding Bashers, returns for a second season this year and viewers are in for a treat as M-Net has also created four Wedding Bashers specials, entitled The Wedding Bashers Specials…With Love which will be aired on channel 101 for four consecutive weeks from Sunday 29 April at 18:00.

The stand-alone specials, which will be broadcast hot on the heels of the season finale of Dancing with the Stars SA, will turn the tables on the show’s original concept as the four intrepid wedding bashers - each with their own set of skills and expertise – will be doing all of the wedding planning themselves for four brave couples willing to hand over the reins to the planning of their big day. 

The four specials and Season 2 of the series return this year with a cast that looks slightly different. Two new bashers with fresh perspectives will join the fray as the team continues their search for the perfect South African wedding. 

The Wedding Bashers Specials…With Love, as well as Season 2 of The Wedding Bashers, welcome the return of wedding planner extraordinaire Zavion Kotze, and party professional Denise Zimba. The Season 1 alums will be joined this year by brand new bashers Zola Nene - South African celebrity chef and author - and former Miss South Africa Bernelee Daniell.

Renowned chef and TV personality Zola Nene will be sharing her thoughts on every culinary experience throughout the series. Zola is best known for her role as resident chef on Expresso Morning Show and is no novice to the culinary industry, having worked with award-winning chefs such as Margot Janse of Le Quartier Francais and Chris Erasmus of Foliage. In February 2016, Zola released her debut cookbook entitled Simply Delicious, and most recently, she joined the local reality competition series The Great South African Bakeoff as part of the judging panel.

Weighing in on all the fabulous fashion and sartorial failures at the nuptial celebrations along the way is Bernelee Daniell. She will be critiquing the gowns, suits, accessories, and overall style of each wedding party and its guests. Bernelee is the perfect fit for this role, as an ex-Miss South Africa and current owner of her own corporate branding and marketing company. Bernelee also spends her time as patron of Steps Charity in South Africa.

Zavion Kotze is back to observe and weigh in on all of the wedding décor seen in the series. Zavion’s meticulous eye will scrutinise everything from the theme and flower arrangements to the overall visual impression at the celebrations. Party professional, bubbly socialite, and VUZU star Denise Zimba will again be tasked to critique the entertainment, giving her stamp of approval - or not - on the reception festivities and overall vibe of each wedding that the bashers attend.

Kicking off at 17:00 on Sunday 3 June, the four Wedding Bashers in Season 2 will make their way to unique South African weddings nationwide where they will join in on all of the celebrations and then discreetly rate the couples’ big day. Each couple who enters the show stands the chance of winning a fabulous prize package in the process.
