The wedding of a local celebrity is said to have cost more than R1 million!
Here’s a look at some of the most memorable celebrity weddings in South Africa.
Mr & Mrs Ndlovu: Hungani and Stephanie
Fans’ requests may have been granted by ZAlebville’s favorite duo. This is when Stephanie Sandows and Hungani Ndlovu resorted to social media to share cryptic photos of what appeared to be them marrying.
They did, in fact, marry in 2020.
Clover Bliss wrote the pair a letter addressed to them as ‘Mr and Mrs Ndlovu,’ giving fans some certainty that they had said their vows.
The fans finally got a taste of Hungani and Stephanie’s wedding day after much anticipation. Hungani shared a wedding video that showed the couple’s preparations for the big day as well as the actual ceremony. Their close friends and family were present at the lavish wedding.
Dineo Moeketsi and Zothile ‘Solo’ Langa
In September 2019, Dineo Moeketsi and Solo Langa married in a white wedding. The Forum Embassy Hill in Cape Town hosted the outdoor event. Orapeleng Medupe created Dineo’s stunning gown. Otiz Seflo designed Solo’s outfit.
For the wedding reception, Dineo changed into a second gown. The strapless Neviole gown was equally as stunning as the one she wore to the ceremony.
A few months before their white wedding, Dineo and Solo held a traditional ceremony. The pair has yet to post photos from the wedding ceremony. Dineo did, however, share a few photos from their traditional wedding celebration.
Senzo ‘Kwesta’ Vilakazi and Yolanda Mvelase
In March 2019, Kwesta and his long-term partner Yolanda Mvelase married. The event took place at Johannesburg’s Thaba Eco Hotel.

Sarah Langa and Jehan Mackay
Sarah Langa and Jehan Mackay’s fairy tale wedding in 2016 was a posh affair. The model wore two dresses on her big day. Both outfits were designed by Gert-Johan Coetzee. “Still can’t get over @gertjohancoetzee work. I admire the level of skill and craftsmanship that was put into creating the dresses of my dreams. I am so proud that I got to wear three of your pieces for my wedding and Lobola celebration, throughout the build-up of these important days I had not even a single worry in mind because I knew I was in safe hands. I really couldn’t have chosen better,” Sarah wrote about her wedding dress.The wedding planner who helped Sarah put her traditional and white ceremonies won an international award for her efforts. Wedding Concepts’ Christina Holt won the best cultural wedding at the Belief Awards in 2018.
Minnie Dlamini and Quinton Jones
The white wedding of Minnie Dlamini and Quinton Jones in 2017 is said to have cost more than R1 million. While numerous companies offered to finance some of the themes for their wedding, the couple paid hundreds of thousands of Rands out of their own pocket. The services of their wedding coordinator alone cost R500 000.
The wedding of Minnie and Quinton took place in Cape Town. Gert-Johan Coetzee designed Minnie’s stunning wedding gown. Somizi Mhlongo, Unathi, Roxy Burger, and Hulisani Ravele were among the prominent guests.
Quinton and Minnie’s traditional ceremony was equally luxurious.
