On Sunday's night's episode of Our Perfect Wedding, we visited Tsakane, in east Johannesburg, to witness the nuptials of Nonjabulo Xulu, 24, and Sibusiso Tjabaka, 27.
Their relationship started off when they pretended to be dating so Nonjabulo she could get another then pursuer off her back.
However, during those long nights chats on Mxit (instant messaging app), feelings began to develop. Their relationship started in 2010 and at the time their parents didn't approve of their relationship.
"Because we go to the same church, and his parents are pastors in the church. They felt that if one of us would hurt the other, they'd have to be involved and they might fight among themselves," said Nonjabulo.
Eight years later, with the lobola negotiations in place, it was only then that their parents accepted their love.
Nonjabulo who ballgown dress that made her feel like a princess, and her bridesmaids wore long dusty pink dresses with lace over tops.
Sibusiso wore a fawn three piece suit and his groomsmen wore dusty pink suits paired with sweet pink ties.

After weeks of intense rainfall, their day was blessed with clear skies and that meant the matrimonial could be staged outside.
The reception area, when the speeches were being said, everyone was in tears when Sibusiso's father spoke. Tears of joy, according to Sibusiso.
"There was a time when they found me in bed and I couldn't move. That's why they're so emotional. They never thought thus day would come," said the groom.
Their wedding happened to be on the same day as Nonjabulo's parent's wedding anniversary day.
Wow that's interesting so they are getting married on the anniversary of the bride's parents 😍 #OurPerfectWedding
On day two of the wedding weekend, the bride was taken to her in-law's family home to be welcomed and given a new name, Masechaba. After that the gift ceremony took place before the day's festivities took place. All in all, the couple gave their wedding weekend 100% and dubbed it their perfect wedding.
