Persistence, love, and commitment are the three words that describe this couples’ relationship. It was imminent that one day they would stand in front of relatives and friends and declare their love for each other. Four years and seven months after dating, Chamunorwa proposed to Prudence on the 10th of October, paid lobola on the 24th of October, and got married on the 31st of December 2020 at UBC Fountain Garden in Hatfield.
It was a beautiful day that began with the couple and their immediate families, arriving in a convoy from Warren Park to Hatfield. The venue was decorated beautifully with their theme colours being Maroon and White.
The wedding started on time and the marriage officer ensured the smooth flowing of events from the sermon, to the exchange of vows, signing of the certificates, and finally the kiss.
After the ceremony, the couple, the maid of honour and best man as well as close family members went for their photoshoot and the guests had their lunch. As an entrance to the reception, Chamu sang Brian Nhira’s song, Would You Still Love Me, as a dedication to Prudence. As Prudence entered the reception, she sang a reply to Chamu, reassuring him that come hail, come thunder, she would love him regardless.
As the couple did not have bridesmaids and groomsmen, they only had a maid of Honour and a Best Man who showed some dance moves as they entered the reception.
The MC, MC Wendumba, made sure the guests were entertained as he kept the audiences engaged and on the dancefloor. The Dance Mongers, a popular dance group also came to give entertainment to the guests making the day exciting. Prudence’s favourite moment was the moment she walked down the aisle and saw her parents smiling. Another highlight of the wedding was the bouquet which was made by Prudence.
As for advice to couples planning to wed, the couple advises couples to forget their worries and enjoy every part of the day and to remember to smile. It’s your day!
