JP Duminy says 'I do'

2011-06-27 11:54
Cape Town – SA cricketer JP Duminy and long-time girlfriend Sue Erasmus were wed on Saturday.

Duminy and Erasmus have been dating for two years and have been living together for the past year in Duminy's "dream house", Huisgenoot reported.

The happy couple could not contain their excitement leading up to their big day – sharing their joy on social networking site Twitter.

On the big day Erasmus tweeted "On my way to the chapel to get married. Best day of my life."

Duminy tweeted his rugby player friend Bryan Habana saying how being a married man is a very "special feeling".

"I am now part of an elite group".

Beautiful ceremony

According to one of the guests the ceremony was beautiful and intimate.

"The bride looked absolutely beautiful and the groom also looked handsome in a classic black suit."

The reception was held at the luxurious Val de Vie estate near Paarl.

Duminy proclaimed his wedding vows in English while Erasmus completed hers in Afrikaans.

Later in the evening Duminy switched over to Afrikaans during his speech in order to thank his new in-laws.

Instead of having guests write their names in a guest book, the couple asked guests to paint their names on a canvas.

Various other cricket stars were present at the wedding, among them Francois du Plessis, Morné Morkel, Mark Boucher, Robin Peterson as well as Graeme Smith.

      What makes her a trophy wife? The fact that she is beautiful? Get a life Alex - don't be so bitchy. Best of luck and congratulations, JP and Sue.

    What is wrong with you guys!!!???? He is my brother and I love him to bits and now Sue is my sister and I lover her to. Our family has accepted her with open arms. Who gives a dam what you people think, My brother has had plenty of girls of different colours that were not half the spectacular and big hearted as Sue is. Grow up stop being jealous and why not aspire to be as happy and fufilled as they are. Why not look around you and see that God has made all people black, whitem, yellow and whatever else! love is colour blind! if only you knew what beautiful people they are individually and even more together...if you knew you would be utterly ashamed of yourselfs!

    dont be a hater be a congratulator ...

    So let me ask you cricket stars and all celebs not deserve love and respect? You are very much entitled to your opinion (which i believe is only valid if you know the couple personally and have all the facts) and I am entitled to mine. Wonder if any of you guys have brothers or sisters now imagine reading horrible comments about them on the internet? would you not be furious and want to defend their honour? which is exactly what I intend to do. I am proud to be a Duminy and I am proud of my brother and even more proud of my beautiful white sister in law! Sue was well off on her own and while modelling met Jean, if you knew anything you'd know Jean was the one who chased after that girl like crazy. They fell in love, its just sad that you guys see him only as a cricketer coz your forget he is way more. he is a human being with feelings and a humble wonderful man who has stood by my family through thick and thin. He nor Sue deserve to be disgraced like this especially around their wedding. you can ask the same question for every couple you see "if he had not been a lawyer would he have met that lady?" or "had he not been a doctor would she have fell in love with him". iTs not about the cricket or the money, if you saw them together or just spent an hour in their company you would know what I mean.Do you think that the coloured/blk girl would not want to marry my brother for money? Regardless of what you feel or say they are good people and dont deserve this!

      Your brother is going to "tune" ... you are embarrassing him! I promise you. Why do you care what these idiots have to say anyway? I promise you brother doesn’t care either.... Really, they are just going to keep revving you until you make a total fool (bigger) of yourself.

      Mordred - 2011-06-28 13:02

      The defending of your brother is admirable and I salute you. Just remember that at least 95% of people in the world have become very jaded and cynical over the years because of what they see has happened and what is still going to happen that they can hardly see when true happiness and joy is taking place. I don't know your brother from a bar of soap except for photographs in magazines etc and I have always thought to myself that he looks like a kind and wholesome type of young man and you have confirmed this. I wish them both all the happiness and joy in their marriage.
