{Real Wedding} Shumarai and Muvirimi


How did you meet?
We met in high school through mutual friends, and were good friends for 10 years before we started dating.

How did he propose?
I had just arrived home from a long trip when he told me that I had ten minutes to get dressed for a surprise dinner. I dressed up and got into the car. He would not tell me where we were going or answer any of my questions. When we finally arrived at our destination I saw it was a private game lodge. The room was filled with candles, the floor was literally covered with rose petals and tea light candles. We had the whole place to ourselves, with a table for two near the fire place. The meal consisted of my favourite dishes from starters to dessert. He asked me to fetch something across the room. I got up. He followed me and said, “I have been meaning to ask you something.” He got down on his one knee and I started screaming hysterically. “Will you marry me?” he asked.

What were the highlights of your day?
Walking down the aisle, I looked up to Mu. He had tears in his eyes. He is not a big crier so that moment was so special.

Muvirimi: My favourite moment was when we flung open the reception hall doors and welcoming in our guests,  while forming a dance tunnel to Bruno Mars’s Marry You. It’s a moment I’ll never forget.

Where did you spend your honeymoon?
Zanzibar seems to be the perfect honeymoon destination.
