They met at a wedding.
Wedding 1

You never know where you’re going to meet the love of your life. Phumelele (34) and Kelebogile (34) Seepi can attest to that!

The couple met at a wedding back in 2016. They had both been invited by friends, as a plus one to the wedding and they bumped into each other at the reception. All the guests were enjoying the festivities, when Kelebogile spotted Phumelele.

Phumelele laughed when she recalled how Kelebogile asked for her number. His version of how they met is a little “colourful” LOL! The two would chat occasionally after exchanging numbers and it was only after two months that they realized they worked for the same company.

This got a little heated one time at their office Christmas party, when the two sneaked off to a private place to steal a few kisses. They went out on several dates thereafter.


The couple lost their son named Kgosi 2020. Phumelele said it was very hard on them. “It’s something you can never be prepared for,” she said.  Her friend Tiny Mashego concurred and added that they were comforted by the fact that Kelebogile was there for Phumelele. “It was confirmation that Phume was not alone, she had found herself a partner that would stand with her through thick and thin,” she said.

How he proposed:

Phumelele said Kelebogile had always been open about his plans for the future and kept talking about it, but didn’t really said or do anything in February 2020. Kelebogile  sent his uncles to her family.  

Kelebogile added that it was only in March that he proposed. He took her out to dinner and after dinner, he asked her to marry him. “I wrote on the mirror of the car, “Will you marry me?” and she said YES!” he said.

Tonight, the couple invite you to join their friends and families, as they exchange vows and start a new and exciting journey in their lives.
