Our Perfect Wedding: Age aint nothing but a number Image : 230

Last night we witnessed our youngest bride of the season, Bontle and Litha’s big day. Their perfect wedding was a one-day affair organised by the groom himself.

Our young couple first had people talking when Bontle revealed her age and concerns about her mother’s reaction. “Getting married at 22! My mom’s going to kill me,” she said. Many debated whether 22 was too young for marriage.
Tshidi Mokoena Cornelia: There is no perfect age for getting married, any age over 18 is right, even over 40 you can get married, lenyalo le tswa ho Modimo!
Rebecca Mochela: Hai she’s too young for marriage and the fact that they only dated for a year. Hmmm I foresee danger!
Refilwe Mohami: If she's ready, who are we to say otherwise?
Thato Vinolia Mojakhomo: Getting married at 22 is more like leaving the party at 21:30.
Katalia Skattie: I don’t think she is too young...marriage is all about love, respect, honesty and commitment. How lucky she is to have found someone to ask for her hand in marriage, it is not about age but finding someone to marry/marry you. If God wants them to be together no one will change it.
Sasa Masabatha MaDube Phakani: I got married at 22...17 years later, I still am!
Sizwe Shinga: My wife was 22 years old and we are still madly in love after 13 years now in marriage. She was 15 when we fell in love.

With her mother’s approval in the bag, the only thing that stood in the way of Bontle’s perfect day, was finding the perfect dress. Our bride found herself another wedding gown just in time.
Ipeleng Miss-Peachez Perekisi: Eish that first dress was going to give me nightmares. You are wise. This one is perfect.
Sapholwethu Ndoni KaMasibiya Ngongoma: Good move, first dress was a horror.
Philile Dlamini: The 2nd dress was ayobaness, loved it!
Katlego Molope: She knows what she wants, I like her.

The two lovebirds went on to have a vibrant and youthful matrimonial ceremony that brought our groom to tears and left guests demanding more when Litha tried to get away with a shy peck on his wife’s lips.
Nuh Nzimande: That was like a brother to sister kiss....umqabulo ubalulekile emshadweni....lol
Mashoka Clementine: The kiss was perfect too. These people are born again Christians. They know what the Altar means. It isn't a place for showing off but a place to be honored.
Thandiwe Mtshweni: Holy kiss haha, it looks like a brother to sister kinda kiss. It's perfect for them though.
Primrose Khoza: When the groom was crying, #priceless moment.

After overcoming a few hurdles, both Litha and Bontle agreed that this was in deed a perfect wedding. Litha was also impressed with his groomsmen who met this “dress to kill” theme with their all-white suits.
Nombuso Nonkuh Mbatha: "Dress to kill, dance to kill, our perfect wedding, and perfect funeral" words of the groom.
Sibo Mufamadi: Wow...it was a perfect wedding indeed, decor, cake, their dance mmmmh!!!! May God bless your marriage guys as I see you are still young!!!
Karabo John: It was a perfect wedding, I liked the groomsmen’s suits.
Marcia Taela: They are beautiful indeed. Wow, congratulation guys! May God bless you, Amen!
Nyambi Madima: I loved the dance...man you know your thing...beautiful wedding guys.
