Bonnie and Clyde! Bride steals roses to use in wedding reception

I know of some wedding committees that were left with egg on their faces after leaving out the most essential commodities in their budget.

Well looks like the same thing happened when a gardener was left horrified when a bride cut down all of her prized roses and expensive blooms, before using them at her reception.

The woman, who posted her heartbreaking story on social media, said she only found out the truth about her chopped buds when a neighbour saw photos of a wedding on Facebook.




A few weeks after the incident took place a neighbour told the gardener that she had spotted similar flowers to the ones in her garden on Facebook.

Apparently, her neighbour had got married the weekend my garden was looted.

Upon further inspection, she noticed the bride and two bridesmaids were carrying bouquets of pink, white and yellow hybrid tea roses.



When the gardener reported her she was fined a mere Ksh 5,000 for trespassing and nothing for the theft of the roses.


The woman said if the rose thief had only bothered to ask for some flowers she would have been happy to supply them at a reduced fee.

If they only knew my man was cooking for me during Okari’s wedding -Betty Kyallo

TV siren, Betty Kyallo has had it rough on social media but says that even Jesus was hated by a lot of people so who is she not to go through a lot of hate?

She noted she’s noticed that people who troll others do so because they are also stressed and unable to deal with the challenges in their own lives, so she just lets them be.

Her ex-husband Dennis Okari got married about a month ago and instead of people focusing on his wedding, many people were out to troll her that her man has completely moved on.

Just after the wedding, Betty unleashed a sneak peek of her man and just like Jalang’o said on Up Close with Betty, he is not black. Could be Caucasian, American, Spanish but definitely not a black man.

To make things clear to those hating on her, she said she is dating and is happy. Though she made sure he is not a guy in the limelight because she has learned her lesson.

i promised myself i will not date a man in the public limelight. i am very happy

So of course from the trolls on Dennis’ wedding against Betty, many people would say she will be crying in the toilet. She clapped back saying little do they know she was having the time of her life.

if they only knew my man was cooking for me some goodies while we watched Netflix. he then dropped me at work,I had a good show and then picked me up later. so please everybody apabamane na hali yao.

Betty Kyallo

One thing Betty kept emphasizing to Jalang’o is that she is very happy with life.

We can only but wish her all the best.

When is your wedding? Fans ask Dennis Itumbi after his brother walks down the isle

One Itumbi down!

David Itumbi, who is Dennis Itumbi’s younger brother, is now someone’s husbands after walking down the aisle with the love of his life, Dorris.

Love and laughter flowed at the exclusive wedding ceremony attended by close family and friends.

In early February, David and his bride Doris held their ruracio in a ceremony that was also attended by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria which was also low key.

Sending his congratulatory message, comedian Jaymo Ule Msee who was sharply dressed wrote:

Congratulations itumbi david and Doris on your union. May God bless your marriage.

The newest couple look happy but Kenyans are already giving Dennis Itumbi pressure on when he will be walking down the aisle.

He had been rumored to be dating Jacque Maribe but he came out to address those rumors claiming they are just that, rumors. Dennis Itumbi is a close friend to Jacque and we saw this at the last court hearing on Monica Kimani’s death where he was present.

We wish David and Dorris Itumbi a blessed marriage.

Are you getting married? Weddings trends to look out for in 2019

We all love weddings and the vibes that come along with it. The glam, the glitz, the mood and of course the bride’s dress. Wedding parties always call for celebrations.

Now, if your are planning on getting married this year, here are some of the trends you should look out for.

1. Cathedral veil

Wedding veil

Cathedral veils have become the latest trends in weddings. Ladies, if you are getting married this year, this is should be in your bucket list. You won’t go wrong with a long veil.

2. Mermaid Wedding gown


Wedding 1

A mermaid gown will definitely show off your beautiful body. Something else that will work in your favor is the dress detail and its upper design. Apart from the groom, everyone else awaits the bride in her beautiful dress. And it gets people talking and complimenting her. You don’t want to disappoint.

3. Wedding colors


Wedding colour

Simplicity is key. Quiet colors are the bomb dot com currently. Nude especially has been embraced widely in weddings.

4. Natural hair


Wedding hair

Working with your natural hair is much easier. You can be sure that your natural hair wont let you down. Spice it up with a shiny head piece or even a crown. That is the only day you will wear a crown and it wont be awkward

4. Nude Make up


Wedding makeup

You don’t want to look ridiculous on your wedding day. Simple nude make up will enhance your beauty and you wont look like your make up is overdone. Again, simplicity is key. What makes everything go wrong is using the wrong shade of foundation. Make sure you are comfortable with your makeup.








Elderly couple ties the knot after 35 years so they can ‘be in heaven’ together

An elderly couple who met in 1983 have finally tied the knot after 35 years of unmarried bliss so that they can be ‘in heaven together’.

David Wiese, 77, popped the question to Carolyn Gabbard, 83, on February 5 when she was moved to a hospice after having a stroke in January.

The bride and groom, who have 17 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren between them, exchanged vows in front of 40 friends, family and fellow residents at the RiverStone Health Hospice Home in Billings, Montana.

Old romantics: David Wiese, 77, and Carolyn Gabbard, 83, tied the knot on February 9 during a wedding ceremony that took place in RiverStone Health Hospice Home in Billings, Montana

The bride said it was ‘about time’ he got down on one knee, as she finally celebrated becoming Mrs Wiese.

David, a retired delivery driver, said that although he has lived with Carolyn for the last 35 years, he believed the belated marriage would also unite them in heaven.

David explained: ‘I’ve considered myself married to her for all these years.

‘That’s the way that I conducted myself.

‘But I wanted to be with her in heaven too, and now we can be.’

The tardy groom admitted that he waited so long to pop the question because he had already been divorced four times when he began dating Carolyn in 1983.

At the time, both Carolyn and David were both living in Belgrade, Montana.

He said: ‘The reason we didn’t get married before now was because it hadn’t worked for me in the past, I was afraid it wouldn’t work again.

‘It took me a long time, but I finally got past that.’

When he proposed to Carolyn in her hospice room on February 5, she immediately said ‘yes’.

The couple planned their wedding in just three days, with the help of friends, family and the hospice’s staff.

David rented a tux for the big day, a local dress shop donated Carolyn’s black and gold wedding gown and a florist provided free floral arrangements.


Love wins! These are the Kenyan politicians who walked down the isle in 2018

Unlike 2017, when politics dominated the headlines, 2018 saw Kenyans turn a new leaf, more so politicians.

From hitting the campaign trail the previous year, a number of them made 2018 another memorable one for them and their loved ones by walking down the isle. Some of these weddings even saw the head of state grace them!

Senator Kang’ata


Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata tied the knot with his wife, Mary Wambui back in September in a colourful wedding graced by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The wedding was held at Gathinja Catholic Church in Kahuhia constituency, Murang’a county.

The couple picked nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura and his wife Mukami as the best couple for their yellow-themed wedding.

MP Ng’eno

August this year also saw Emurua Dikirr MP Johanna Ng’eno bid farewell to bachelorhood after he married the love of his life Nayianoi Ntutu at a colourful ceremony that was attended by DP William Ruto.

The wedding ceremony was held at the Emurua Dikirr Primary school in Narok County.

The ceremony was a mix-up of Maasai and Kipsigis cultures, symbolic of Ngeno’s political leadership as a Kipsigis MP representing a constituency in Maasai land.

Cornelius Kibet

Samburu West MP Naisula Lesuuda’s wedding was probably the highlight of the year.

The hot MP tied the knot with the love of her life, Robert Kiplagat in a green and gold themed wedding which was held in Samburu and attended by close friends, family and politicians.

The wedding took place in November.

She may not be a politician (Maybe she is aspiring to be one) but we could not wrap up this list without mentioning about this colorful wedding.

In August, Patricia and her longtime boyfriend Evans Omondi Odiero walked down the aisle in a flashy ceremony that went down at Rea Vipingo.

Top politicians attended the wedding.

Cornelius Kibet aka Sarasar married his lover Mercy at his home in Kapkeringon Village in Nandi county.

The MCA is a plum job that comes with a fairly decent salary, a car loan, mortgage and juicy per diem and sitting allowances. This formed the basis of the opinion and remarks of Facebook users.

Teach us your ways! Kajiado man praised for marrying two brides in a historic wedding

A moran in Kajiado married two women at one wedding on Tuesday.

Tom Mako alias Junior, 27, comes from a family with a history of polygamy.

Such has never happened in Maa land that stretches from Masimba in Kajiado East to Trans Mara in Narok.

In a colourful ceremony at Kisaju, Mako wedded his brides Elizabeth Silamoi, 24, from Enkorika in Mashuuru and Joyce Tikoyian, 23, from Empakasi near Kitengela.

Mako met Silamoi while grazing his cows two years ago at her home. A year ago, he met Tikoyian while also grazing his animals in Empakasi.

Tikoyian went to school up to Form 4 while Silamoi made it to Form 3.

In Maasai custom, paying pride price is done before marriage. Mako accomplished that before their grand wedding.

He said he married under customary laws, but he and his brides dressed in Western style. His wives wore wedding gowns while he was dressed in a suit with a matching tie.

“I want to clear the air. My wedding was customary and had nothing to do with the Church. There are people posting misleading information on social media that my wedding was presided over by pastors,” said Mako.

He said he chose to marry two wives because both of them loved him. He did not want to offend any of them.

“This is a message I’m sending to modern cheating husbands who pretend to love one woman and yet they have others on the side,” he said.

“I’m being sincere to my wives because I will not have any other reason to marry another woman. I believe the two will satisfy me.”

Silamoi said, “I love him very much because before he brought Tikoyian, we discussed at length. I gave him my blessings. I love her as well.”

“I started courting with Mako two years ago and I’m satisfied he is my total man. He is a man of his word, and I know that he will not let me down on anything.”

Tikoyian, who spoke to the Star in the presence of her co-wife and husband said; “He is our love, we chose to do what he wanted – the two of us are his wives.”

She said her parents approved of her marriage with Mako because they trusted him. They believe he will take care of her and their children, Tikoyian said.

The groom’s father, Mako Busabus and his mother Sintiyio, said they could not believe their son’s proposal to have two wives in one wedding, but it came to pass.

“At more than 90 years, I have never seen such a thing in Maasai land because we always do things differently. Normally, a man who wants to marry a second wife must stay for at least one or two years before bringing in a second one,” Busabus said.

Mako’s agemates and guests who attended the wedding consider him a hero. He did what no moran has done in Maa land.


Congratulations! Samburu West Mp Naisula Lesuuda walks down the isle! (PHOTOS)

Gorgeous Samburu West MP Naisula Lesuuda finally said ‘I do’ to her long term lover Robert Kiplagat on Saturday, November 17th 2018 in a colorful ceremony.

lesuuda 1

The invites only wedding ceremony took at Lesirai, Samburu county, 7 kilometers from Suguta Town in front of the couple’s friends and families.

The wedding comes just 8 months after Lesuuda announced her engagement.

She wrote;

“Here’s to new beginnings. When we made a decision to not only run for Member of the National Assembly for Samburu West but also on a KANU ticket, we knew that it was not going to be an easy task. However, with your support and prayers, we made it against many odds.

“A lot was said about our candidature and even our chances to clinch the seat. You the people of Samburu West believed and together, we made it happen. Thank you.


“I pray that 2018 will open a new chapter to all of us. We will all work together for the common good of our people endeavoring to implement my Campaign pledges. Education remains my number one priority. Research has shown that where you invest in education, you invest in the entire community. It is in this regard that I am putting all efforts to personally meet the school fees of the needy students who did well in Standard 8 and have no means to go to high school as we await CDF allocations from treasury.

“All said and done, I thank God for the growth that I have experienced both politically and in my personal life. Yesterday, marked an important day in my life… I said YES. Blessings in double portions. Here’s to love and light in 2018,” wrote Naisula Lesuuda.

Is Ali Kiba’s wife open to him getting a second wife?

Uhmm..ok. aren’t they muslims, and men are allowed to marry multiple wives? Correct me if I’m wrong.

In a recent interview on Clouds FM, Ali Kiba and his new wife opened up about their relationship.

The media shy wife, confessed that she would not want him to marry a another wife.


Amina Rikesh revealed where she met the hunky singer.

‘Mara ya kwanza kukutana na Ali Kiba ilikuwa kwenye ndege na hatukuzungumza. Mara ya pili, kaka yangu binamu ndiyo alinikutanisha nae maana walikuwa marafiki sana na hapo ndiyo tulianza urafiki wetu kabla ya kufika hapa tulipo,

This was back in 2016, when things got serious between them.

She was asked if she would allow the singer to marry another wife, she paused then replied;


‘siwezi mruhusu japo mungu ndiye anapanga’.

Ali Kiba has been sued by a fourth woman, who claims he has not been paying child support. It will be interesting to see how it develops.

The two love-birds are currently in Tanzania, and we do wish them well. In the meantime, listen to his new song Mvumo wa radi. Is it a hit or a miss?

Woman Overcomes Confidence Issues By Marrying Herself

A yogi who overcame crushing confidence issues by marrying herself even appointed three friends as witnesses when she recited her vows into a heart-shaped mirror on an idyllic beach.

After being inspired by a relationship guru to tie the knot, Mickie Monroe, 28, claims her love for herself has deepened every day since her wedding.

Proudly wearing her $100 (£56) wedding ring, Mickie, who lives on Australia’s Gold Coast and was married on its Miami Beach, said: ‘If you’d have asked me a couple of years ago about self-marriage, I’d have thought it was narcissistic.

‘But now I realise it’s nothing to do with narcissism, which focuses on what other people think of you. It’s more about self-awareness, and how to deal with those negative, critical thoughts everyone has about themselves.

‘If I can be kinder to myself, then it has a ripple effect and will, in turn, make me a more loving person to others.’

Growing up, Mickie said she didn’t ‘like or look after’ herself.

Ballooning in weight, she hit 15st at her heaviest, battling with her size as well as having alcohol issues.

She continued: ‘I was so disconnected from myself, and very lost and angry.

‘I abused cigarettes and alcohol and was so critical of my own body. My way of dealing with the world was just to numb myself out.’

‘You had your I get the wedding’: Bride’s ‘scary’ open letter to her fiancé’s high school girlfriend goes viral

A bride-to-be’s gloating open letter to her fiancé’s high school girlfriend has gone viral after it was branded ‘scary’ by readers.

In a piece called ‘You May Have Worn The Prom Dress With Him, But I Get To Wear The Wedding Dress’ published on The Odyssey, student Victoria Higgins admitted to being jealous of the girl her husband-to-be took to his prom – but bragged about being the woman who gets to marry him.

Victoria, thought to be a student at Missouri State University, wrote: ‘I wish that I could say I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you, but I can’t’, adding that it ‘kills her’ that she didn’t know her partner in high school and get to cheer him on at sports matches.

Her letter has now gone viral, with startled readers calling the bride-to-be a ‘bunny boiler’ on social media.

In the story, Higgins wrote that while many teenage girls think they will marry their high school boyfriends, she was the one to whom the unnamed woman’s prom date had eventually popped the question.

She said: ‘You had your time, and now I get the wedding. You got to dress up in high school, but I get to dress up for my wedding with him.

‘He may have put a corsage on your wrist, but he will be putting the wedding ring on my finger.’

Despite her pride at being the one who got to marry the unnamed man, she admitted to experiencing huge jealousy at now sharing the milestones of a teenage romance with him.

She wrote: ‘It kills me that I couldn’t be there for him because I know I would have actually been there wholeheartedly. I would have done it out of love, not as a popularity appearance.’

Higgins told the ex girlfriend that she wasn’t ‘sorry’ that she didn’t get to end up with the man she’s marrying, but assured her that she would ‘find someone too’.

The article has now been shared thousands of times on social media by users who mocked Higgins’ ‘scary’ attitude towards her fiancé’s ex.

One tweeted: ‘Jesus Christ, don’t even have to read the article. The title alone screams ”bunny boiler”.’

‘He needs to run! RUN FOR HIS LIFE!!!’ another posted.

A third said: ‘This piece is one example of why I sometimes think, in all seriousness, that the minimum age for marriage should be 30.’

‘She sounds like she’s 1 break up away from being a bunny boiler,’ another agreed

Pesa Ni Pesa: Woman Arrested After Posing As A Man And Getting Married Twice To Obtain A Dowry

An Indian woman has been arrested after allegedly masquerading as a man to marry two women and obtain a dowry.

Krishna Sen, 26, is believed to have posed as a man since 2014 when she wed her first wife, using Facebook to snare her brides.

They reportedly separated soon after the wedding, then Sen married another woman in April 2017.

Her former in-laws told police that she had been harassing their daughter for a dowry and borrowed more than £9,000 from them to start a business, but didn’t repay it.

Sen reportedly spoke in a deep voice, smoked, drank alcohol and rode a motorcycle with her male friends to maintain the ruse.

Police told the BBC said she had never undressed in front of her two wives or been sexually intimate with them.

But The Times of India report that she confessed to using sex toys to make love to her brides in complete darkness.

Sen, formerly known as Sweety, was arrested on Wednesday in the northern state of Uttarakhand for demanding dowry, which is illegal in India.

Police said that Sen’s deception was uncovered during questioning and she told them she had always wanted to live a ‘man’s life’.

It is not clear whether her parents were aware of what she had been doing.


3 famous Kenyans who should be invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding 



An intimate black and white portrait of the newly-engaged couple embracing and deeply in love was published by Kensington Palace this morning with an endearing but more formal picture of them sat together holding hands.

Then a third portrait was released two hours later as a ‘candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings’, with Kensington Palace saying the couple thanked well-wishers for their ‘warm and generous messages’.

The refreshingly warm photographs taken at Frogmore House, a private royal residence in the grounds of Windsor Castle, will be welcomed as a contrast to many of the more formal royal engagement portraits of the past.

Celebrated fashion and celebrity photographer Alexi Lubomirski – who has snapped everyone from Julia Roberts to Angelina Jolie – was said by a body language expert to have captured their ‘high levels of sexual attraction’.

Mr Lubomirski – who has previously worked with photographer Mario Testino, a favourite of Prince William and Princess Diana – described taking the pictures in Berkshire earlier this week as ‘an incredible honour’.

Meghan is wearing a one-of-a-kind sheer couture dress worth a whopping £56,000, along with a jumper designed by Victoria Beckham. Kensington Palace confirmed to MailOnline that the dress by British firm Ralph & Russo was ‘privately purchased’, although it is not clear who bought it – or whether the full price was paid for it.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared this 'candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings' at Frogmore House, a private royal residence in the grounds of Windsor Castle. A social media post by Kensington Palace said: 'Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments following the release of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle's engagement photographs. The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives'

One of the three photographs of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, taken earlier this week. It shows the couple, dressed smartly, sat on the steps of Frogmore with the US former actress just below her fiance. Meghan places her left hand on Harry's right hand, again showing her engagement ring, as they both look at the photographer. Meghan chose a couture gown by British label Ralph & Russo, which is understood to have cost an eye-watering £56,000 to pose in her husband-to-be's arms

Harry and Meghan released the official engagement portraits, almost a month after announcing their plans to get married. One of them was this intimate black and white portrait of the newly-engaged couple embracing. The image, taken in the grounds of the house, shows the prince and his fiancée smiling, and embracing as their heads touch. Meghan holds the prince's face, with her engagement ring prominent, as he wraps his arms around her

Nie Reke Gwire! Brides marry trees in mass wedding in Peru (Photos)

mass wedding isn’t appealing at the best of times but this group of women walked down the aisle to find a tree waiting for them.

Having donned white wedding dresses, the women tied the knot with the trees as part of a performance in a park in Lima, Peru.

The strange ceremony – entitled ‘marry a tree and save it’ – involved the women carrying white bouquets of flowers and promising to look after the trees until parted by death.

It was organised by Peruvian artist and activist Richard Torres who acted as a priest for the pro-tree weddings.

In the bizarre video from Lima, Peru, brides are married to trees in a ceremony entitled 'marry a tree and save it'

After completing the ceremony they were allowed to kiss the groom on the trunk, while guests threw tree leaves – in place of confetti – over the ‘happy couples’.

Mr Torres is well-known internationally for his pro-tree performances.

Mr Torres said: ‘We are giving a message of peace, giving a message to make people aware of the need to take care of trees.’

The brides were local actresses he had persuaded to perform for the occasion.

The mass wedding was organised by artist and activist Richard Torres who acted as a priest. The women, dressed in white dresses, promised to look after their tree until parted by death

The blushing brides kissed the trees after the ceremony and guests threw tree leaves instead of confetti over the happy couples

Patricia Serra, one of the brides, said: ‘This event is to make people aware of the need to love trees and this is a commitment that is going to be for the rest of your life, it is the same as a common wedding, making a promise.

‘Trees do not have a voice but we all are listening to their protests and therefore we are here.’

The aim of the event was to remind Peruvians of the value of trees and the need to look after them.

Mr Torres, the leader of the Corazones Verdes (Green Hearts) movement, says many have been lost to new developments in Lima and he wants to save those that remain.

He also plans to stage similar events in other countries to try to save thousands of threes threatened by the high level of felling in Latin America.
