Esther Mwikali is a name many regular visitors to the litkenya.com website will by now be quite familiar with. After all, she has penned most of the interesting entertainment stories you will have read on this platform. Esther has some profound knowledge of the vibrant world of celebrities, regularly prying into the lives of musicians, broadcasters, and other stars.
If there is one thing that she really relishes, it is being able to unravel the lifestyles of the celebrities and their partners, and she also enjoys covering weddings. Her articles are usually written with a passion, as she sheds light on the lives of the people that many fellow Kenyans adore.
But last yesterday, 21st November, the shoe was on the other foot and I came to understand that when one is in love, one is more likely to be not just thinking about love but actually being smitten.
All this time, Esther has been quietly cooking something of her own and Saturday, 21st November, was the date for her to unveil and serve the ‘delicious food’.
The ambitious young woman wedded the love of her life in a beautiful ceremony at Kariakor Social Hall in Nairobi. Interestingly, there was a live band playing and not the playback from laptops or other gadgets that one sees at many weddings. And the band put in a fantastic afternoon’s work, with the drummer and the lead guitarist setting the tone of the celebration well before the bridal party arrived.
And the lucky man is Charles Mwangangi, a visibly soft-spoken fellow. His best man was dressed in a formal black suit but he chose a smart casual orange jacket and black trousers.
Their colourful event was attended by family members, friends, colleagues and some of her bosses here at Litkenya.com.
The couple are now already ensconced somewhere deep in the resort zone of Mombasa County, fully and deservedly enjoying their honeymoon.
We wish the newly weds nothing, but happiness as they start their married life.
Now let the pictures speak:
