Matthew & Wanikas Catholic wedding was held at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Bergvliet, but just to keep the day full of excitement they decided to celebrate their newly wedded status across town at the Milnerton Golf Club.
Matthew and Wanika met ten years ago when they started a new youth band at their Church together. After 2 years of finding a profound and deep friendship, they connected as a couple and have been together ever since – a true fairy tale story – having survived many obstacles, including a stint of long-distance! Matt proposed on a trip to Rio last year as representatives of their Church – they went to attend an International Youth Ministry event in Rio called World Youth Day. He proposed at the foot of the Christo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) statue in Rio.
An amazing story that culminated in these two best friends marrying on the exact spot that they met!
