There is nothing more affirming than a man who knows what he want,s and Moses Tshimanga knew exactly what he wanted when he first met his wife-to-be, Christelle.
Moses and Christelle’s love story is one to admire. The couple reflects on the first time they met and how love-struck Moses was upon laying his eyes on Christelle. Off the bat, Moses knew that he wanted Christelle to be his girlfriend.
Moses is a man who knows what he wants
During their first date, Moses made it clear that he wanted to be in a relationship with Christelle and needed to know if Christelle was on the same page. Perplexed at how fast things were moving, Christelle asked that they take things slow as Moses was beginning to treat her as his official girlfriend. Upon Christelle’s request, he slowed down.
Patience is truly a virtue because the beautiful Congolese couple now find themselves on Our Perfect Wedding, ready to share their love with the rest of Mzansi.
Christelle’s reception wedding gown
The couple’s wish list consists of a ring, wedding gown and décor. The planning of the wedding was nothing short of elegant, with some fun surprises along the way.
At home, Christelle gives us a sneak peek at her reception wedding gown. What’s interesting is that Moses doesn’t even know that the gown is complete.
The beautiful dusty pink dress fulfils Christelle’s wish of feeling like a princess on her wedding day.
The ring that allows Christelle to shine
And no princess attire is complete without some sparkle! Christelle flashed her diamond for all to see. Going with something more subtle but just as elegant, the ever hilarious Nomsa Buthelezi-Shezi (our host) notes that this ring is that of a king who allows his queen to shine.
The décor matched the gown
Last but certainly not least in preparation for the special day was the décor. The décor matched Christelle’s wedding gown in a beautiful vision of white, pink and rose gold. You could tell from everyone’s face that they were pleased with the décor and that this was going to be such a memorable and beautiful wedding.
The most memorable wedding day
And what a beautiful wedding it was. Many on Twitter commented on Christelle’s beauty and how gorgeous she looked in a different wedding gown from the first one we saw. She tops off the bridal look with a sparkling tiara.
“It’s a princess gown, it made me more of a princess and I deserve it,” says Christelle.
The couple got married at an intimate outdoor wedding venue surrounded by close family and friends. What was particularly interesting about the ceremony was when the groom walked down the aisle with his parents – this is not something we see often at a wedding ceremony.
Similar to Moses, Christelle also walks down the aisle with her godparents.
In a moving exchange of vows in French, the couple were then officially announced as Mr and Mrs Tshimanga.
The glamorous reception
The couple’s reception was by far the most glamorous and expensive-looking reception we’ve seen in a long time.
Moses serenaded his wife as they got lost in each other’s eyes while enjoying their first dance as a married couple.
The night ended off with fireworks as everyone danced the night away.
Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Tshimanga: the wedding was truly fit for a king and queen.
