Stunning gospel singer Joyce Omondi has broken her silence about her December 18th wedding, divulging sentimental details about two women who made her big day extra-special.
Omondi, who used to co-host Citizen TV’s Kubamba Show, tied the knot with fellow Citizen TV staffer, Waihiga Mwaura in a lavish getaway wedding held at the exclusive Sawela Logdge in Naivasha.
Though the Conqueror singer is often fiercely protective of her private life, she took to her Facebook page to thank two women who played a major role in putting together her breathtaking bridal look.
The first person she appreciated was her mother saying, “My dear mum kept the very same veil she wore on her own wedding day for me! It matched my gown PERFECTLY and was just as beautiful as when she wore it decades ago!”
And where did she get the luxuriously embroidered long-sleeved bridal gown that was a perfect blend of amatory and decent? A close childhood friend, who Joyce regards as a sister, helped her design and tailor the dress.
“And then there was this gown! It was such a joy designing it with my best friend @naomydesign who has been the sister I never had since childhood. She totally brought the design to life with her amazing tailoring skills!” posted the grateful newlywed.
To the vocally gifted musician, her gown was more than just a ceremonial white outfit: “The sentimental value of what I wore that day is something I will always treasure.. a reminder of two incredible women who have stood with me through the highs and lows of my life and loved me so graciously. How I love and thank them both immensely!”
A surprise wedding
Little was known about the couple’s courtship, and when news of their wedding broke, it was splashed on many local websites and blogs.
The duo opted for an intimate out-of-town wedding, and close friends, family and members of the media fraternity attended the lavish ceremony.
Sports Anchor Waihiga looked stunning in an all-white three-piece tuxedo, and his groomsmen wore black suit pants and waistcoats with white shirts and green neckties. The bridesmaids wore long fitting evening gowns in a rich green colour.
Here are some pictures from the wedding:
