Whisper & Bride

HERE COMES THE BRIDE: The bride, Nicole, arrives for her wedding to Peter in a Whisper launch. The launch is built by deaf students from the Noluthando School for the Deaf in Khayelitsha who are being trained as skilled boat builders by the Whisper Boat Building Academy. Nikki and Peter were married on the launch in Velddrift at the end of September.

Peter’s last hope

Just before he ties the knot Peter considers whether he needs some serious help!

Peter and Tabisa

Peter and Tabisa. Tabisa is wearing a dress made out of material made in Ghana whilst the dress was made by Ghanaians living in Cape Town.

Gavin

Also there was Gavin, who was the MC for the occassion and ensured everyone had a very good party. It was stressful but worthwhile Gavin!

Max and Tabisa

And Dirk also took this very nice photo of me and Tabisa.

After the wedding in Velddrift there was also a more traditional (in a shebeen – Vuyo’s Place – so it must have been traditional?) occasion in Mandalay. We are trying to source pictures from that, where Nicole was given the new name Nolitha (light).
