Bernard Parker weds


He’s known as one of the most lethal strikers in the country but he met his match when he married his long-time girlfriend in Ballito Bay, north of Durban.

Kaizer Chiefs star hitman Bernard Parker scored what he considers his greatest goal when he finally found time between games to marry Wendy Cherry in the playground of the rich and famous in KwaZulu-Natal.

As Youth Day was being commemorated around the country on 16 June, Bernard and Wendy walked down the aisle in a glitzy wedding ceremony attended by 170 guests at the Braeside wedding and functions venue in Ballito.

“I spoke to my wife-to-be about fixing a date for the wedding. It was just a matter of finding the right time on the rare occasion when I wasn’t playing a soccer match,” says a beaming Bernard shortly before the Victorian-themed nuptials organised by Timeless Weddings Company.

“The time is now and I know I’ve made the right choice,” he smiles.
