Have you ever wished that you lived in a snow-world? So that you could watch the snow melt and then season to summer amidst fresh flowers, warm weather, and lots of love from family and friends? You probably even watched the “Frozen” movie franchise and conceived this perfect idea of a perfect winter-Summer-African bliss wedding. Something that transgresses what weddings have been so far in Uganda. And then reality: your wallet and the opinions of your friends may have slapped you hard in the face and made you realize; it was just a dream.
That is not the case for Andrew and Maxine.
On 15th May 2021, the happy couple watched their fairytale fantasy come to pass. They got married at St. Stevens’s church of Uganda Kitara amidst cheers and smiles from friends and family. Nevertheless, the day started off with a glitch as the weather frightened everyone in the morning with stormy clouds. The happy couple said their vows and tied the knot amidst friends and family, following the Standard Operating Procedures with masks worn and hand sanitizer handed out at every corner.
The bride dressed in a bedazzling beaded open back white ball gown dress from Anita Baro’s bridal collection, making her the epitome of beauty. Her maid of honor was equally smartly dressed in a bright pink and white one-shouldered dress with a shimmering accompaniment. Her bridesmaids – dressed beautifully in bright pink matching dresses didn’t disappoint either.
The groom was dressed in a flawless suit with black dress pants and a white jacket from Larry Kashur’s wedding collection. His best man was equally splendidly dressed in a sleek suit from the same collection.
The wedding reception
At their reception, the stylish couple along with their entourage arrived in all black Mercedes G-wagons decorated with white florals and roses: setting precedence for the type of event Andrew and Maxine’s wedding was to be.
Okay now, we get to the good stuff! This ceremony of love and splendor took place at Mestil hotel and residences’ gardens. The luxurious hotel’s garden was transformed into the mind of a young woman’s fantasy land; floating crystal chandeliers, hundreds of hanging fairytale string lights, a white-boarded floor, and a screen backdrop accented by an artificial arch winter tree which brought the enchanted snowy bridal backdrop to life.
On entrance to the venue, guests were greeted by the enchanted hue of the white and gold with the table and seat placements respectively. A bottle of wine and whiskey was placed at every table and the guests soothed to the sweet melody of Alan Toniks’ band. Baby blue, lilac, and white flower sets blessed the scenery at every angle and illuminating chandelier lights were hung at the top of the tent to project the image of wavy frozen ice streaming above the guests. Exquisitely portrayed, the decor by iCandy and Fenon‘s production really set the mood of the day.
But what makes a wedding worthy of mention is not just the decorations or production; the exquisite food and the abundant amount of juice over fifteen different kinds of organic fresh made juice from Dalausi juice side stall decorated with grass carpet, vases filled with fresh lemon pieces, as well as fresh pineapples on stands along the walkthrough was a view to behold. Like summer crashing with winter, it was a view to behold! But no, it’s definitely the guests that set the day.
Yes, nothing makes your wedding more wonderful than the guest list. Friends, family, honorable ministers, commissioners, and powerful political figures.
“It was everything she wanted and more,” says Ainebyona, one of the bridesmaids referring to the bride.
Through all the hard preparation, work with a dedicated team, and pure love, a perfect wedding really is attainable.
The guests, danced to flawless music by Allan Toniks’ band, watched a timeline video from friends and family of the couple and danced the night away into utter bliss after cutting a very delicious cake.
It just goes to show, the magic of a wedding, stems not just from the decorations, but also from the family, guests, and all-around love you may receive.
The wedding really portrayed winter, summer bliss, and everything in between.
