Tune into Top Billing on SABC 3 on Sunday at 12h30 for Eloise Cupido’s wedding that took place at Askari Lodge & Spa in June.
We share the sweet love story of South African actress Eloise Cupido and her man, Chris Wilkinson:
When you are on a plane, you’re mostly hoping the person next to you respects your elbow room and doesn’t step over you seven times to visit the bathroom. What you don’t count on, like actress Eloise Cupido, is that you’ll end up marrying your fellow passenger.
The couple decided to tie the knot at this Magaliesburg game lodge, half a world away from Auckland, New Zealand where groom Chris Wilkinson is from and a far way from the Klein Karoo where the bride grew up.
Making her television debut years ago on SABC’s Vetkoekpaleis, today Eloise is a presenter, MC and voice artist who’s written and produced her own album. Chris is a mineral exploration consultant who struck gold in his fiancé. Eloise had never been up Table Mountain so that’s where Chris proposed.
When Chris first Googled Eloise, he hit the jackpot while his online presence was non-existent. So it has stayed – and their differences work! When it came to a venue, the Big 5 Askari Game Lodge & Spa offered to host the wedding and did a top job.
