"Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth." - Mark Twain.
Sue and David were determined to have fun on their wedding day and looking at their photos it is clear they did just that. Many are the moments where they are laughing at what seems like an inside joke. And during the reception they let loose and danced like nobody was watching; they even had Isikuti dancers!
Have a look at this fun and interesting wedding. Get inspired!
Tell us your love story, how did it all begin?
We met in 2007. I had just gotten a job where David used to work and we struck it off immediately as friends. A few months later I got another job but we kept contact. We reconnected in 2009 and started dating.
Why did you accept his marriage proposal?
He is just the best :-) humble, loving, most handsome man ever, polite and very patient.
What was your wedding theme and what inspired your choice of colours, suppliers and style?
I choose the colour and since I love pink then a pink wedding it was! The black was to tone down the hot pink. Our suppliers offered a one stop shop for the reception-tents, chairs, tables, food and drinks.
We are fun loving people so we wanted to have as much fun as possible hence the free-style; nothing at all was choreographed.
What part did you love most about the wedding planning process?
Trying on numerous gowns and tasting the cake :-) it was basically stress free for us.
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.
Wow! It was intense since it was in the rainy season I kept wondering if we’ll get stuck in the mad.
I remember saying a prayer as I walked down the aisle for it not to rain and God heard me and it shone all through the day. It was such a beautiful day.
What songs did you and your bridal team walk down the aisle to?
Bridal Party-Damu Yangu by the Villagers band
Bride Hallelujah by Alexandra Burke
Tell us your biggest cost saver and any cost saving tips you have for people planning their wedding.
We used our own cars so we didn’t have to hire.
We also got a good discount on the photo shoot grounds since we had already hired one side of the grounds.
What advice would you give brides who are looking for a way to get the groom more involved in the wedding planning process?
David got to choose what he wanted for the groom’s cake; the Gor Mahia cake. Their attire was also his decision.
He gave very good ideas on things like the menu(which I hadn’t thought about) and the invitation cards.
What (in your opinion), do you think is the most overrated thing in weddings?
The stretch Limos :-) they cost soooo much for a very short period.
At Kenya Weddings we are always looking for something different unique and creative that a couple incorporates in their wedding. Please let us know what your something different was, what inspired you and how you got it done.
Our cake was just the show stopper. We had a grooms cake (Gor Jersey),
Brides cake (Gucci handbag), parents cakes (kiondos with a Fish and a cob of maize),
2 Loaves of bread for the grandma’s and cupcakes for everyone to feast on. Our guests ate and enjoyed the cake.
The photo shoot was totally not choreographed and the random poses actually came out the best.
Our vows were personalized and ready from an ipad (but do I say).
