Did you or will you be getting married in 2017?


Here at W24 we love nothing better than reading stories of how our readers met and wed their loved ones. 

From couples who’ve met at night clubs to the classic, “I met him/her through a mutual friend” scenario, the galleries we’ve featured have been the perfect combination of beautiful and romantic.  

We’d love to see more.  

So if you’re keen on sending us your stories and showing us the gorgeous pics of your big day, and thereby stand a chance of winning our Bride of the Year competition, here’s what you need to do: 

Which is why we’d like you to send your pics (hi-res images please) to Chatback@w24.co.za and include the following in your story:

1. How you met.

2. How he/you proposed.

3. The date of your wedding.

4. A little behind the scenes information about the wedding planning process (this includes deciding on theme, venues, etc).

5. Where possible, please include a list of wedding suppliers (along with links or contact details) that you'd like to recommend to fellow brides-to-be.

This would include details on who supplied your gifts, which company did your cake, venue listings and flower arrangement details. For a complete list of recommendations, please see our directory listings here.

6. Most importantly, please provide us with the name of the photographer (along with a link to the photographer's website where possible) responsible for taking all of your gorgeous pics.

Following your submission, we'll then feature your gallery in our bridal hub.
