Pietermaritzburg - Senior KwaZulu-Natal state advocate Adelaide Watt was appointed as an additional magistrate for one day so that she could preside over the marriage of her daughter, Lindsay, to Frans Swart in a civil ceremony held at the Pietermaritzburg high court.

“Lindsay decided 14 years ago that she would marry Frans,” laughed a delighted Watt.

The civil marriage took place on Friday, and will be followed by a church wedding. The church wedding, “for practical reasons”, will only take place on September 3.

Afterwards the happy group set off to celebrate the union at a wedding breakfast at Rosehurst.

Watt said the couple became engaged on the day of her own wedding to Johan Schoeman on December 20, 2015.

Lindsay’s bridesmaid was Rochelle Herbst, while the best man was state advocate Simphiwe Mlotshwa.

State advocates Ncedile Dunywa, Sipho Magwaza (who is also a minister) and Ian Cooke also attended and participated in the ceremony.
