Orlando Pirates show-stopper Brighton Mhlongo tied the knot this past weekend to Dimakatso Mareme.

Close friends and family were worried that the soccer star wasn’t going to make it to his wedding after he was nabbed for speeding on Friday.

According to Daily Sun, a source closed to the soccer player told the publication, that Brighton was driving at 173km/h on the Golden Highway in Joburg because he was rushing to prepare for his traditional wedding, which was taking place the following day.

“Fortunately, he was released on the same day of his arrest and everyone was relieved”   said the source.

Another source told the publication that the wedding was attended by some of his teammates, including Patrick Phungwayo, Menzi Masuku and Oupa Manyisa.

“His teammate, Lehlohonolo Majoro will throw him the mother of all bachelor parties ahead of his white wedding” said a friend.
