Newly Weds: Rudo Wuragu Madindi and Gamaliel Madindi

When Rudo Wuragu, a beautiful young vocalist in the Gweru based Joyful Praise Choir met Gamaliel Madindi during a Gospel Show in Gweru in 2012, she knew she had met a man like no other. Love blossomed soon afterwards and the two who met and fell in love publicly acknowledged that theirs was a love which was a reward from God through a unique Bush Themed Wedding at Victory Life Tabernacle church.

We managed to have a few minutes with the bride and here is what she had to say about her wedding:

The Proposal Story

Well my husband proposed on my birthday. It was a planned surprise between my husband and his sisters.In a few words, the surprise came at the right time.
The Planning Process

Basically, it was a bit difficult in terms of resources since we both were not employed formally, so we had to hustle up but God intervened. The church and both families also gave aid and it worked out in the end.

Culture

In our shona culture we believe in dowry before marriage, then the bride’s father will allow the wedding to go on, so basically this culture made it easy for me to get my father’s blessing to wed.

The Wedding Style

Apparently I had planned my wedding to be an elegant bush wedding, not garden wedding. So we used VictoryLife Terbanacle Centre and it was the perfect site for the event.

Wedding Dress

I had two wedding dresses, one white and the other red (red is my favourite colour).

I wore the white one in the morning and the red one in the afternoon.I personally chose to hire my white dress then custom made the red one.
