Keemenao and her husband met at church. Their wedding was a blend of two different yet beautiful cultures. Although these cultures are worlds apart the couple wanted their guests to experience both cultures. Below Keemenao tells us all about their stunning Tswana and Nigerian wedding. ENJOY
The Planning Process
YOH!!!! It was stressful. We fought, we made up haha and had sleepless nights. We had help but it was stressful because the 17th of March was lobola/traditional wedding and 24th of March we had a church wedding.
Our photography was done by Van Bower, Catering by Nhlanhla Mngadi, Deco by Amor events, Cake by Thili’s cake, my Tswana princess dress was done by Africa Fashion house, make-up and hairstyle by @moteesignatures, videography by gimmick photography. There were things we were not happy about but there was nothing we could do since it was on the day of the wedding and there was no time to improve nor make changes.
A Stunning Tswana And Nigerian Wedding
We chose the shweshwe fabric first. We went for a yellow colour. My wish was to look like a Tswana princess and I wanted a ballgown shape. I also wanted something I would be able to wear again I asked them to make it a skirt and a top. There were no tears but I was content with my choice. I went for Igbo mermaid dress which was comfortable for the reception.
The Wedding Style
It was an African wedding and the dress code was African print. Our intention was to embrace the coming together of two nations and cultures.
Our honeymoon was the biggest investment and we saved by having a small number of guests (120).
