Chantal and Greg Magid of Cape Town recently won the prestigious SA Weddings Bride of the Year Competition for 2019.
The contest has been run annually by SA Weddings for the past 20 years and receives thousands of entries from around the country. Each month, the entrant with the most votes is chosen as the bride of the month so that, by the end of the year, twelve finalists compete for the title of Bride of the Year.
The couple was married in December 2019 at Olive Rock in Wolseley, Western Cape. After being encouraged by one of her bridesmaids, Chantal decided to enter the competition. She recounts, “It was a great way to relive our wedding day and to wear my wedding dress one more time! As my husband Greg is Jewish and I am Christian, we decided that it was important to us to ensure that our wedding was a culmination of both spiritual beliefs. We were married by Rabbi Azila Talit Reisenburger and it was truly a wedding not to be forgotten.
On 13 June this year, Greg and Chantal were announced the winners of the competition for 2019. “We were very surprised and thankful to have won out of eleven other incredible finalists”, says Chantal.
