They met in January 2008. Bongi needed to complete 3 weeks of experiential work training in order to for her to get her Diploma from TUT. Her cousin organised the training at the Department of Social Development. She was received and welcome by Unathi and Bathembu. During the training, Bongi and Bathembu worked closely and a friendship started to grow once they discovered that his uncle is her dad’s former pastor and very good friend. Their friendship continued to grow after they completed their training and left the Department. Easter holidays of 2008, Bongi decided not to go home. It was during this time that their friendship blossomed into romantic love. In 2009, we they blessed with a baby girl, Lilo. Through their struggles as young parents, lovers and friends, they’ve weathered the storms and now they are finally ready to make a life-time commitment to each other.
An awesome thanks to Urban Junction for letting us use their cafe for a few photos.
Looking forward to your beautiful Hogsback Wedding in December!
