Diamond encrusted rings, real crowns & all white glam - inside Somhale's white wedding
They promised that it would be a white wedding never to be forgotten, and they weren't joking!
Somizi Mhlongo and Mohale Motaung celebrated their white wedding on Thursday and brought Mzansi to a standstill.
The Idols SA judge and his bae exchanged a set of diamond-encrusted rings set in an intricate design by local jeweller Nungu Diamonds. The rings were engraved with each other's name on it, and looked like something out of a royal wedding.

“Celebrate yourself in wonder and appreciation of what love in its purest form has made possible,” part of the invite read.
