Thami & Dimkatso Skosana’s Wedding
Tell us how you the two of you met:
We met (at the Steve Tshwete municipal offices where Dima worked as an IT Technician). When Thami was running an NGO for local youth and needed a letter from the municipality to be transcribed into a printable format as it was handwritten due to lack of resources. The conversation started with Thami calling Dima “thick” minded for not being able to read his handwriting. To say that Dima was least happy about this is an understatement! However, as they say in most beautiful stories, the rest is history.
Full names of couple: Thami & Dimakatso Skosana
Occupations: Financial Advisor (Thami) &IT Systems Engineer
Wedding: White Wedding
Describe your wedding attire:
The colour code was rose gold and different shades of pink. The bridesmaids were adorned in the dusty pink dresses whilst the groomsmen complimented the groom with Blue suits.
What was wedding shopping like for you?
The shopping for the suit for the groom was hectic! Three suits were bought before the final suit was established! I had a much clearer idea for my dresses and went straight to the designer, Neviole or LA ART NEVIOLE EMPORIUM to get 2 dresses custom designed for me. The cake was bought from Cake Delights a boutique cake maker in Pretoria East.
What is your best memory from your wedding?
The best memory for the groom was looking into my wife’s eyes as I delivered my vows! She looked so beautiful! I couldn’t have imagined her on our special day until she stood next to me. Best moment for the bride was walking down the aisle to the sound of violinists playing Canon in
What is the best wedding advice you can give to engaged couples?
Clear communication lines at all times and the space for compromise! This is both your day and no one should have more say about what should take place but the two of you. And delegate as much of the minor detail to people you can trust and are reliable.
