Storyline

The loyal, committed and very decent Elvis leaves Johannesburg to pick up his best friend and best man Tumi in Durban. The two will then journey on to Cape Town to begin rehearsals for Elvis's wedding to the beautiful Ayanda. But things don't always go according to plan. An appealing, feel-good movie about love, commitment, intimacy and friendship and the host of maddening obstacles that can get in the way of a happy ending. Written by The Film Catalogue

In a rush to get married...
28 July 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This South African movie was somewhat of a surprise. I had initially not really expected much from it, and it being a romantic comedy didn't exactly add to my expectations or excitement.

And now having seen this movie, I can say that it is a good story and it is nicely told. The story is about Elvis (played by Kenneth Nkosi) who is going to marry Ayanda (played by Zandile Msutwana), but he has to travel a long way with his best friend Tumi (played by Rapulana Seiphemo) before he can get to stand at the altar. And, of course, the road ahead is turbulent and full of obstacles and surprises.

For a romantic comedy, then "White Wedding" is a fairly straight forward type, and doesn't really offer much new to the genre. But that being said, it was a nice and heartfelt story.

The movie was nicely acted by the people on the cast list, and it was refreshing to see an entirely cast of all new faces on the screen.

I am rating this movie a 5 out of 10 rating, because it is enjoyable, but I am not overly keen on romantic comedies in general. Plus it lacked moments that would have the audience laughing out loud. There were moments that would make you smile, but not really laugh. And it was a shame that the movie lacked that, because it would have made the movie much better. But the lack of laughs, is made up for with a very real story and characters you can relate to.
