SA's first gay reality wedding show


Two Guys and a wedding! Lloyd Kandlin and Shane Everts took a chance on love and became the first gay couple to recently wed in a lavish ceremony .

A blind wedding?

We’ve heard of blind dates – but the thought of marrying someone the first time you get hitched to them is a little crazy, isn’t it?

As part of a reality wedding show, Lloyd Kandlin and Shane Everts came face to face for the first time on their wedding day. The couple got hitched on Saturday, 26 March, in a stylish ceremony worth R1.4 million.

Lloyd Kandin was chosen as the first groom and had to decide between 5 bachelors who he has never met but only spoke to on radio. Under the pseudonym Lekker Larry, Lloyd proposed to  proposed to Shane Everts (Hastige Hendrik) at the Grand Daddy Hotel – each of them were wearing masks.

Okay, the concept is definitely unique but we’re not sure we would be ballsy enough to try it.

Would you?
