Nicollette Kuppen and Hermish Ramlall

Childhood friends and high school sweethearts Nicollette (27) and Hermish (29) have been a couple for 12 years.

After his proposal in Thailand, the pair decided to host a modern Indian celebration that begins with a beach ceremony in Umhlanga in front of 35 close friends and family, before proceeding on to a 300-person reception at a community hall in the Phoenix neighbourhood that they both grew up in.

Hermish is the youngest of four brothers and his fiancée teases him that he is a ‘mama’s boy’, while Nicollette is an only child. As the bride is of the Christian faith and the groom is Hindu, their big day - which has taken 14 months to plan - is set to be a unique all-white Eastern wedding.

The couple, who both love animals, are especially pleased with their choice of reception venue because all funds raised at the venue goes to a local special needs school!

The wedding begins at 10 am and is expected to end at 8pm, so it’s a long day ahead in Durban…

Ezél Esterhuyse and Henk van der Walt

26-year-old maths teacher Ezél Esterhuyse is marrying her high-school sweetheart Henk in an informal rustic themed wedding. Guests can expect a lot of greenery, as well as candles, lanterns and long tables.

With the duo making a lot of their own décor elements, including their centre-pieces and the flowergirl’s dresses, this wedding is fittingly being held on a country estate.

Both the bride and groom’s families have been very involved in planning, with the bride’s three sisters selected as her bridesmaids, but the couple is worried that their parents may not enjoy the day.

The Wedding Bash(ers) is broadcast on M-Net channel 101 every Sunday night at 17:00. Follow all the breaking news and conversations around the show on Twitter @MNet / #WeddingBashers or on the official M-Net Facebook page.
