Timothy & Patriciah
 
This wedding has lots of creative elements that are bound to steal your heart. But the most outstanding part of the wedding was the fun and creative photo session at a roundabout and later on a fly over.

But don't just take our word for it...see it for yourself below

Tell us your story?
How and where did you meet? I love this story. We met at a kiosk in Parklands…I know. I was in my 4th year at UoN School of Law, Parklands.
 
 
 
 
I had just left campus at about 9pm and was going to the hostel since I lived outside campus. I passed by the ‘kiosk’ that was outside to buy Panadol for the headache I was having and there he was sitting in for his friend. They say the rest is history.
 
 
 
 
What do you love the most about each other? 
Bride: There’s so much to love about him. Timothy is God-fearing, has a big heart for people, very humorous, kind, gentle, intelligent….and most definitely handsome. 
 
 
 
 
 
Groom: I love her good heart, the fact that she’s a Christian by practice not just by name and she’s very beautiful – even without makeup.
 
 
 
 
How did he propose?
Wow! We travelled to the most beautiful place, Tafaria Castle, together with two of our friends and unknown to me I was the reason.
 
 
 
 
At exactly 12 midnight on 09.05.2014 he got down on one knee and said, “Five years it’s been awesome. What about the rest of our lives?” I said yes…and yes we had been dating for five years by then.
 
 
 
 
 
What was your wedding theme and what inspired your choice of colours, suppliers and style? 
Our wedding theme was simplicity; there’s beauty in simplicity. 
Colours – Yellow is the colour of fun and sunshine. That’s how we envisioned our wedding…a time to enjoy and lots of sunshine (the sun truly showed up).
 
 
 
 
Suppliers – reasonable pricing and package did it for us.
Stlye – We are both simple people and we wanted reflect who we are in the wedding.
 
 
 
 
What songs did you and your bridal team walk down the aisle to?
Bridal team: Someday by Atemi & Chris Adwar
 
 
 
 
Bride: All of me by John Legend feat. Lindsey Stirling
 
 
 
 
Recession: Nakupenda Pia by Wyre feat. Alaine
 
 
 
 
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. 
Bride: I woke up at 7am excited about the day. I said a prayer then got to preparing. It still seemed surreal for me that it was my wedding day. The bridesmaids came by shortly and ther was a lot of excitement and noise.
 
 
 
 
The relatives started streaming in at 8am. We took breakfast with the girls then began dolling ourselves up for the big day. Timothy’s family arrived at our home 10.15am singing. I was dancing from my room window as I watched them. Finally, after a prayer together it was time to head to Cool Breeze. The grounds were amazing.
 
 
 
 
We exchanged vows and listened to a sermonette by the pastor. Not quite sure I remember what exactly was said. It was still unbelievable we are now one. We left for the photo shoot at Kingdom Gardens – absolutely wonderful session then came back for the reception and yeah we rocked the party. I have never danced that much.
 
 
 
 
 
It was our day and we decided to enjoy it. Thereafter, we had food as the MC took the guests through the program of a few speeches and gifts. We crowned it with the cake session and it was time for some creative evening photo session around 5.30pm. The highway was just the place for that. When the sun set we headed to the hotel where we would be spending our evening.
 
 
 
Groom: Well, since I spent the night with my buddies we had serious camaraderie in the morning, and I was pleased with how much support they offered. I was also praying that all goes according to plan. I was missing her and anxious to get there on time without being caught by NTSA 50kph rule :-)
 
 
I was also hoping that my envoys that were headed to her place would succeed in bringing her out in time for the starting time we had planned for. 
 
 
Tell us your biggest cost saver and any cost saving tips you have for people planning their wedding.
It definitely has to be having the same supplier for grounds, tents, tables, chairs and décor.
 
 
Advice: Be practical about every single cost item on the wedding list. That’s the best thing a couple can do for themselves. We decided to be practical. Also avoid high peak seasons; off peak seasons are the best as suppliers can be able to give discounts.
 
 
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?
Invest in a good photographer. When all is said and done the photos and video is what you have left to look back on that day.
 
 
 
You had a really fun photo session! What inspired your choice of location and how did you pull it off?
We wanted something simple, creative yet breathtaking. How we pulled it off? We got a good and creative photographer :-)
 
 
Did you use of the Kenya Weddings website when planning your wedding? If so, tell us how.
Yes I used your website to look for vendors for grounds and ideas for themes.
 
 
 
Any other tips/lessons you would like to share with other brides and grooms planning for their wedding?
a. Pray and trust God together. He will come through for you in every way. He did it for us and it was marvelous in our sight. We just can’t take the glory.
b. There’s life after the wedding never forget that.
