DURBAN: TV personality Minnie Dlamini officially became Mrs Jones when she married television producer Quinton in a star-studded ceremony at the luxurious Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West near Cape Town yesterday.
Some of the guests who witnessed the lovebirds tying the knot were Somizi Mhlongo, Unathi, actress Jessica Nkosi, tv personality Anele Mdoda , Liesl Laurie, Euphonik, DJ Sox and Jessica Motaung.

Dlamini wore a long white dress and a veil and her hairstyle was a low bun.

Jones wore a black suit with a white shirt.

The theme of the wedding was all white and the reception was detailed in all white decor.

After the ceremony, the Jones’s went into the vineyards for their photo session.

Guests meanwhile mingled, sipped champagne and enjoyed oysters and delicious canapés. Guests were heard saying “Champagne darling, champagne” a term coined by Bonang Matheba, who did not attend the wedding.

In the reception area, the couple were seated on transparent chairs with a white table, candles and flowers. Guests were treated to a four course meal on gold trimmed white plates and there was a posh late night braai station.

The Jones’s were also filming their three part reality show based on the wedding titled, Minnie Dlamini: Becoming Mrs Jones.

The candid series will show the ins-and-outs of the wedding planning process, the wardrobes, traditional and western cuisine. The show will start off with the traditional wedding and culminate in the white wedding. The couple travelled across South Africa to put their special occasion together.

Minnie commented on starring in and producing the show: “It is not a reality show, but more a three-part docu-series. It’s my journey, told through my eyes, my way. Producing the show helped me maintain control of the creative process throughout. The production is deeply personal and I can’t wait to share it with the country, as I step into my new role of being Mrs Jones.”
