Gosego & Monzo (Phestine)
“She made me the happiest man in the world and said ‘yes’ with a huge smile on her face”
The couple were introduced to each other by a colleague of Gosego’s who knew he was looking for a girlfriend. He had already mentioned Gosego to Monzo (Phestine) and told her all about him. She gave him her number and some photographs, and Gosego fell in love at first sight. They agreed to be introduced – and the rest is history.
Gosego proposed at home in Kathu. He asked Phestine how much her parents would pay for Lobola, and she asked him why. He replied by asking her to marry him. “She made me the happiest man in the world and said ‘yes’ with a huge smile on her face,” he said.
Their wedding was “a dream come true – literally the best day of our lives”. “It was emotional, meaningful, and above all, joyful and fun.” The couple was even blessed with a little rain at the end of what they described as an “epic day”. A highlight was the way in which the church had been decorated, and the reception, as well as how well the entire wedding was coordinated. For Gosego, his highlight was “how beautiful my wife looked on the day”.
They felt a little nervous standing together for the first time as husband and wife, but at the same time were delighted that the day had finally arrived. Their advice for new couples? “With proper planning and support from family, and your love and understanding of each other, your wedding will be the best day of your life.”
