Ntsikakazi and I have known each other since grade 1 and for a moment, I considered posting our class photo but we haven’t really changed much since then. When I first moved to Cape Town, she was the person that made me feel most welcome and not-so-lost so I was humbled when she asked me photograph her traditional wedding on a very hot day in Mafube, Matatiele. Ntsikakazi and Duma are, first and foremost, the tightest of friends and this comes through in their relationship. He is her number 1 and she is his love and on this day, the love and celebration was what is was about. Friends and family came together from afar to start the journey of this union and it was a celebration as colourful as Kiks’ giggle.
Some people (like Kiks and D) are just made for each other and that is the long and short of it!
In November we do it all over again! Stomach in, chest out…!
