HOLAA Loves: Cindy and Lunga’s Nuptials, tradition and modernity meet

By HOLAA ed,

In this short photo essay we are allowed a sneak peek into the wedding of Lunga  and the person she calls ‘her butch’ Cindy.

The pair are both from Mohlakeng, Gauteng South Africa and met on the 5th of November 2009.

They got engaged on the 25th of December 2011, with the traditional dowry (lobola) being paid by Cindy ‘s family to Lunga’s family on the 03 March 2012. The two love birds made it official on the 12 October 2014 at the Randfontein Home Affairs office with awesome celebrations taking place on the 8th November of the same year at Lunga’s home and the 9th November at Cindy’s.

The two say that ‘we are happy because our wedding was supported by our families and the community of Mohlakeng. We are still happily married and still hoping to grow our love stronger through the years.’
