Hi and welcome to my bio! My name is Chinyanta but my friends call me tchichi and I married Joseni on Friday 26th august and Saturday 27th august, 2011. We had two ceremonies (civil and holy matrimony). Our wedding was everything I dreamt it would be!
Joseni and I met in 2003 at university and we became great friends until august 15, 2005 when we started dating. After Jo graduated, he moved to Lusaka while i was still at school in Kitwe. After i graduated, i moved back to my home town, Ndola (over 300km from Lusaka) were i got a job. We dated long term for 4 years before Jo proposed on September 23, 2010. This was one of the happiest days of my life!!
Our wedding colors were purple (my favorite color) and grey with various greens. We planned a garden, day reception. My girls wore floor length purple gowns silver/grey heels. I wore a white lace gown, purple shoes, pearl stud earrings, a pearl necklace, and a fascinator. For the civil ceremony, i wore a simple black and white dress, and white heels... i looked gorgeous ;) By the way, we had a huge bridal party!!
We had a great time! I hope you enjoy viewing our photos!
