Dion Black Marriage Facilitator - Wedlock=Badlock

We got married in Cape Town on 1 April 2013 by Dion Russel Black, an ordained minister and registered marriage facilitator in the Southern Suburbs, Cape Town. He was suppose to register our marriage with the Department of Home Affairs within in 10 days. Three months after the wedding, it has still not been registered with Home Affairs. Dion Black didn't even submit the relevant documents for our marriage to be registered. Marriages done by him between 6 April and end June, was only submitted a week ago....
Despite numerous emails and telephone calls, we didn't get any feedback from Dion Russel Black from [URL Removed]
We decided to to go look for him at his dwelling just to find it vacant!!!

I believe that Dion Russel Black is a cheat and I would advise other couples NOT to make use of his services!!!!

Hi! I am currently experiencing the same problem with Dion Black. We got married in July and he still hasn't handed in our register. We are in December! I can't get a hold of him. Neither can my husband, or anyone I've asked to help us contact him. He is ignoring all the calls, messages and emails. How did you solve the issue?

We experienced similar issues with the marriage officer Dion Black (owner of Wedlock) in 2017. At the time of our marriage, he assured us that the registration would be done promptly. However, he did not register our marriage for many months. He repeatedly assured us that he would, but every time we checked, it had not been done. Eventually he stopped answering all calls and emails and it was almost impossible to find or contact him.
It was four months of constant worry. Had we been scammed? Had he lost our documents? All he had to do was register our marriage at Home Affairs. It is a very simple process for him--go to Wynberg DHA and hand in the documents. This is a requirement of his job.
After three months we finally heard back from him: he had registered our marriage. Turns out he was lying, and so when we checked, it was still not registered. We eventually had to threaten legal action. Even then, it took him another couple weeks to register our marriage.

Dion Black caused an enormous amount of stress in our lives and I strongly advise anyone seeking a marriage officer to avoid him.
