Nicole Da Silva Gets Candid On Love, Marriage And Everything In Between

While the world is still in a state of shock as the Covid-19 coronavirus continues to wreak havoc on the world, 5FM DJ Nicole Da Silva recently took time to celebrate her relationship as she tied the knot to Chris – her partner of five years. As the couple celebrated each other on their big day, Nicole reminisces on her romantic wedding, how they met and her bigger celebration plans.

Tell us the story of how you two met.

We met at a braai! I know, what a cliché, but it’s the truth. One of my close friends from my campus radio days invited me over for a braai, I wasn’t going to go because I was only finishing my show at 5pm, but she twisted my arm and I went. Chris was invited by my friend’s husband – who he worked with. We hit it off and had a bit of banter but didn’t exchange numbers or anything. He sent me an inbox message on Facebook a couple of days later… that I didn’t see for a few weeks. When I did see it, I replied, we went on a date the next weekend and have been together ever since.

What has been the best highlight since you two got together?

There have been a lot of moments over the years, but I think the overall highlight is knowing that I have someone in my life who loves and supports me in all the ways that really matter. We want what’s best for each of us in our personal lives and for us as a couple. Having a partner that’s fun to be with and an absolute rock of a human being when things aren’t going well is amazing.

Will you be having a big celebration later on?

Thankfully Covid-19 didn’t derail our plans too badly. We still plan on having a proper big celebration later this year. We’re OK with the fact that a lot of our friends and family that live overseas and in SA won’t be able to make it because of travel bans, quarantine, health concerns, financial strain etc, but we’re going ahead anyway and are really looking forward to it. We hope we won’t have to cut numbers, but if events aren’t allowed at the time, we probably won’t reschedule.

What are your honeymoon plans, if any?

After the wedding this year we’re going to do a mini-moon somewhere at the coast (it’s a surprise that he’s planning). When we can travel abroad, we’re going to do a few weeks in one or two parts of Europe, whenever that is. Italy is definitely on the list.
