Wedding (Photos) of Leeto and Mokgadi Skeem Saam's

It's wedding time in TV land and local soapie Skeem Saam will celebrate the month of love with a spectacular wedding.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, for two days - tonight and on Monday - the SABC1 show will air a lavish wedding that promises to keep any regular watcher glued to their TV screen.
Following months of taking audiences through a wild ride, the characters Leeto Maputla (Eric Macheru) and Mokgadi Matloga (Pebetsi Nolo Matlaila) finally walk down the aisle in style.
Matloga will be the picture-perfect blushing bride in a breathtaking strapless beaded mermaid gown, custom-made by Palse Femme. The groom will be dapper in a three-piece suit designed by Palse Homme, with a white tuxedo jacket consisting of black lapel details.
"I absolutely loved the wedding gown. I felt like a queen in it and that was the first time I have ever been in a wedding dress," Matloga confesses.
"Eric is the coolest guy ever. He's a childhood friend, so he made my work a little easy."
This marks the first-ever wedding for the TV show, which is in its fourth season.
According to Skeem Saam publicist Percy Vilakazi, they went all out to bring all the magic live to the small screen.
Although he won't reveal the exact amount of how much it cost to make the two episodes, Vilakazi states that it was quite costly.
He adds that they initially intended to film the wedding over two days, but ended up shooting over a period of four days.
"We spent hundreds and hundreds of thousands [of rand]. It was like a real wedding, with many other logistical (TV) elements that resulted in additional costs.
"We had initially booked the entire venue (Oakfield Farm in Honeydew) for two days. Our cast and crew stayed over for those days because logistically, that was just easier.
"Now we're talking almost close to 160 people. We then had to add two more days for the shoot to be completed," Vilakazi reveals.
