The dress code was strict yet playful in its instruction. All white with red bottoms only because Idols SA judge and choreographer Somizi Mhlongo and his fiance Mohale Motaung had a vision of their wedding guests clad in Christian Louboutin heels against a sea of all-white. 

Their wedding pictures would be a testament of their pure love for each other and the red would be a visual representation of their shared passionate love.

No cellphones, please: Showmax has exclusive rights
