13 August 2019 was a dream come true for Bridget and Tatenda as they proclaimed their love for each other in front of their relatives and friends at Tiffany’s venue with their theme colours being navy blue, rose gold and dusty pink.
Bridget and Tatenda met through a friend sometime in 2013 and they started dating in 2015. Two years later, on a one fine evening dinner date, Tatenda knelt on one knee and proposed. Lobola was paid in September 2017 and the planning of their day that would begin their happily ever after began.
Some people opt for the evening weddings because there is more time for preparations before the wedding ceremony. However, in this case, the bride and her bridesmaids had to wake up as early as possible as they had slept in Marlborough for their pre-wedding shoot, then they had to travel to Mufakose, at the bride’s parents’ house then leave for Tiffany’s venue. The time-keeper made sure everything went according to plan.
The wedding started at the slated time-1230, with the groom proceeding to the ceremony with the solo singing of Phaserz and the bride walking down the aisle with both parents flanking her, to the tune of ‘Ndozvinoita Nyasha.
The bridesmaids were dressed in beautiful navy-blue long dresses and the groomsmen dressed smartly in navy suits. The vows were the favourite part of the day for the couple.
The reception was nothing short of amazing with exquisite décor and chivalry chairs. The bride changed to a beautiful blue shiny dress and the bridesmaids changed to beautiful rose gold dresses. The bridal party and the wedding guests danced the night away.
The night turned out more exciting when the couple’s friends, Ric Chasers and DJ Towers surprised them with three top local artistes, Stunner, Trevor Dongo, and Jimmy from Xtra Large.
The only disappointment on the day was the wedding cake which looked incredibly beautiful but was inedible.
Bridget’s advice to future brides is “Start planning your day as soon as possible because time flies.”
