Actress Eloise Cupido marries Chris Wilkinson

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 fair 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, Graham Shipway offered to host the wedding and did a top job.

Chris is not as social as Eloise but both work from home and always have each other’s back.  Friend and opera singer Yollandi Nortje sang Eloise down the aisle. Combining Aerosmiths’s I don’t want to miss a thing and Rihanna ’s We found love the opening dance brought the house down. Everybody was soon on the dance floor as the African and Australasian guests learned Latin line dance and Salsa moves well into the early hours.
