Couple gets surprised with their own wedding

A Pretoria couple couldn’t believe their luck when their friends and family got together and arranged a surprise wedding for them.

Nompumelelo Somdaka-Ndesi (28) and Nkosiphendulo Ndesi (32) got engaged in 2018.

“When she said ‘yes’ I was over the moon. We had built a solid friendship over the years. We were able to sit down and talk about real-life issues and I would have done anything to be with her. But the challenge is that I was broke at the time,” Nkosiphendulo told W24.

The church they both regularly attended decided to take matters in their own hands. This is how it all went down:

One morning after the church service, Nompumelelo went to her friend’s place for a visit.

“When I got there, I was surprised to see a wedding dress, shoes, a wig and a make-artist. I was shocked when my friend told me that it was all for me and the church had been planning the surprise wedding for a while. Everything fit and the wig was beautiful,” exclaimed Nompumelelo.

Meanwhile, Nkosiphendulo was surprised by another fellow church member with a suit and shoes. They were asked for their sizes separately before the day and had not picked up any hints at the time. The couple was then driven back to church separately and arrived to find a beautifully decorated church hall.

Poor Nkosiphendulo’s first thought was wondering how he was ever going to pay for it all.

Nompumelelo, in turn, was afraid of how her family would react to the suprise. “But, when they saw me in that white dress, I could see happiness in their faces.” Both the couple’s parents were invited.

The couple said that they had the time of their life, and are forever thankful to their church community who made this dream come true for them.
