In 2016, Tapuwa and Edwin attended a wedding as strangers, with only one thing in common, Tapuwa’s friend who was also Edwin’s niece. Only the heavens knew that two years later, they would wed and become Mr. and Mrs. Gwadu.
After the wedding, having exchanged numbers, Tapuwa and Edwin became friends, but Edwin had already seen a wife in Tapuwa. Sceptical at first as she was afraid to ruin the friendship, Tapuwa agreed to start dating. After a few months of dating, one night after a dinner date, as Edwin dropped off Tapuwa at home, he popped the question and a girl in love could not resist.
On the 8th of December 2018 at Colray Gardens in Borrowdale, Tapuwa and Edwin became husband and wife. There was a bit of panic as the marriage officer arrived two hours late. Besides the ceremony starting later than planned, it was a beautiful ceremony. Both ceremony and reception were beautifully decorated in navy blue and gold.
The décor was beautiful, and the venue was perfect; simple but sophisticated. The cake complemented the colours very well and it was not only beautiful outside, the taste was also amazing. The bridal party did the most with their dances on the dance floor and the wine toasting was just the icing on the cake.
The caterer was a huge disappointment as they failed to deliver. Negative feedback came from the guests and if the couple could change anything, it would be the caterer as people got sick after the wedding.
Tapuwa’s advice to future brides is “*Minimize as much as possible the people in your wedding committee *Be careful of service providers, I don’t encourage having an all in one service provider *Try to minimize the costs, there is life after the wedding *Plan a wedding that you can afford, never strain yourself *As a bride, make sure you have good relations after the wedding especially with your in-laws
