  • Popular Mother-in-Law actress Faith Nyaga aka Lisa got married to the love of her life in an exclusive ceremony on Friday, December 11, 2020.

    The event featured media celebs such as Cathrine Kamau aka Kate Actress, Timothy Kimani aka Njugush and Abel Mutua’s wife Judy Nyawira. 

    Sources in Nyaga’s circle told that her white lace gown cost Ksh 100,000.

    The wedding was held at an exclusive location in Nairobi which attendees were unwilling to reveal.

    The ceremony was kept under wraps, with one of the actors who is in a WhatsApp group with Nyaga saying, â€œWe just saw photos on WhatsAppâ€. 

    Photos of Faith’s husband were also not made public, with the couple preferring to hide his identity. 

    The actress had held a bridal shower on Sunday in an all-white ceremony attended by her close friends.

    Wedding planners and suppliers in Kenya cash in on ceremonies where couples spare no expense. 

    A report by Samantha Bridal, one of Kenya’s leading wedding media and lifestyle companies, stated that weddings generate an average of Ksh30 billion every year. 

    Some of the largest expenses are incurred in booking locations, gowns, decoration, tents and VIP transport. 

    Simon Kimani of Reliable Vehicle Rentals in Nairobi said that VIP vehicles such as Toyota Land Cruisers or Prados can go for as much as Ksh 15,000 per day including fuel and chauffeur costs.

    More luxurious models like Range Rovers and Mercedes Benzs go for more than Ksh 20,000 while budget cars fetch Ksh 7,000 a day each.

    Locations such as St Francis Karen cost Ksh 75,000 for the venue, exclusive of the food. 

    “Many Kenyans are marrying late in life when they are established in careers that afford them a disposable income which they can use to finance the kind of wedding they want,†a section of the report revealed.

    Businessman Jared Otieno made headlines a few years ago when he landed in Meru with choppers and high-end cars to pay a Ksh15 million dowry for his girlfriend Kendi Mwiti, with sources indicating he spent almost double the amount during their wedding that was held at Windsor Golf & County Club.

    Wilson Mutura and Ann Mutura hold the record for the cheapest wedding in Kenya as they got hitched on a Ksh 100 budget. The couple made the headlines after their unique low-cost wedding went viral back in 2017.
