Tell us your story? How and where did you meet?
I met Castine in church, he was the youth chairman and I was the organising secretary. He was just a friend and a mentor; that was in 2013.
We started dating in 2013 April, it became serious but we didn't rush.
What do you love the most about each other?
I liked him because of how he loved God and how he used to pray in church. I was always looking forward for Sundays
How did he propose?
In 2016 August 10 he proposed, we went to planet yoghurt at Nakumatt Junction, my favorite joint, the ring was hidden in the ice cream unfortunately I saw something shining, but I didn't suspect, he went down on his knees and asked me to marry him, it was the best thing that ever happened to me.
He was the man that I really admired and was asking God to give me a man who had his character not knowing that God was preparing him to be my husband. The journey is not easy but we thank God it happened, we had a very supportive committee.
What was your wedding theme and what inspired your choice of colours, suppliers and style?
My colours were peach and turquoise blue. My husband loves blue I didn't want to be selfish we had to agree and choose two colors that won't disappoint us. We got peach and we loved it. My suppliers got them through friends, brother in law, my mum and parents in law were very supportive too.
Give a brief recount of the wedding day, from waking up till evening and the things that were going through your mind at the time.
Everything went well I was not disappointed. I chose some friends, cousin from my side and my husband's side, it is very important to have a family member in your line up he or she is a representative of your family. For friends I chose close friends.
You must have learnt quite a number of things during the wedding process. What did you learn regarding the wedding photography that you would like to other couples to know?
During the wedding we had budgeted for around 300 people, we didn't expect a lot of people, the turnout was so good some missed seats but we apologize. After marriage is getting to learn each other, having been brought up on a girl's family no brother I had no idea of how men behave, so it's a learning process and accepting one another, communication.
Any other tips/lessons you would like to share with other brides and grooms planning for their wedding?
My advice is prayer is the first key, plan early so as to avoid debts and loans. Seek for advice from those who have wedded before you. One can have a simple wedding but very beautiful.
