Tell us your love story and win with #BONAWeddings


Stand a chance to win the most romantic weekend getaway of your dreams and monthly prizes!

Happy bridal couple

We love a great romance and we want to celebrate your love story and the wedding that made it official. #BONAWeddings is looking for 10 weddings to feature over the next 10 months, and yours could be one of them. Whether your wedding was in a church, where you grew up, at your favourite outdoor venue, and whether the dress was a beautiful shweshwe or Ankara print, or delicate cream lace and voile, we want to see it. The unique and special way in which you said “I do” is exactly what we are looking for.

In addition to sharing one beautiful story a month, one lucky married couple stands the chance to win the grand prize of a fabulous weekend getaway to Kievits Kroon Country Estate and Spa. The winning couple and their love story will also be a part of our annual #BONALove photo shoot where they can rub shoulders with famous couples, out in February 2019. Each month’s couple stands a chance to win a hamper full of goodies valued at R1000 and will also be automatically entered into the grand prize draw for the Kievits Kroon country estate baecation.
