The staunch Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) politician could not resist the urge to go lavish and make the day of his life with his bride utterly breathtaking and memorable at its best.

From the glimmering white lace sleeved trumpet-designed wedding dress worn by the bride, and navy blue colored dresses worn by the bride’s maids, to the black 3 piece suits rocked by the groom and his men, the wedding ceremony was simply stupendous.

Adding to his extravagant look, the groom also had a black fedora which made him stand out.

Great jubilation filled the ceremony, when the groom performed for his wife, singing and dancing to a romantic rhythm which left friends and family in owe of their love and union.

What, however, marked the highlight of the wedding was when the bride arrived at the wedding grounds in a chopper.

The bride and groom were congratulated by media personalities including aspiring Lang’ata lawmaker Felix Odiwuor aka Jalang’o and his wife Amina Chao, plus seasoned journalists Ken Mijungu, Akisa Wandera, Trevor Ombija and Dennis Onsarigo.

Also in attendance were controversial bloggers Robert Alai, Kenyan singer Suzanna Owiyo, and ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna.
