The beautiful local lady and her husband attended a lobola ceremony and they posted photos of the event on the social media group.
Marais said she and her husband "enjoyed a lobola function" and she added it was a lot of fun. Marais posted several photos of herself with her hubby at the traditional event.
"Went and bought myself the real makoi, even hubby got the real traditional skin outfit," she wrote on Facebook.
