It's modern day South Africa and in Cape Town the beautiful Ayanda (Zandile Msutwana) is just days away from achieving her lifelong dream: the perfect white wedding. The only problem is that her husband-to-be, the loyal, committed Elvis (Kenneth Nkosi) is 1800 kilometres away in Johannesburg.

[A] pleasant, intentionally lightweight, South African road-movie romance with a sly integrationist political agenda.
The film trivializes real problems in South Africa so I won?t feel bad saying that White Wedding makes it seem like the biggest danger facing the post-apartheid South African film industry is falling victim to Hollywood clichés.
