A California Love Story Celebrated In Destination Uganda
Anthony and Tina’s destination Uganda wedding was an elegant, romantic, whimsical, classy lockdown wedding.
It was a mixture of culture and modern exotic trend from Ethiopian attire of the groom Anthony Malone heritage to the Buganda traditional heritage for the bride Nsubuga Tina.
It was a lockdown wedding where SOPs had to be in place of social distancing on tables, masking and sanitising
Anthony Malone and Tina Emily Nsubuga was one of a kind match, they met at a coffee shop, while she was buying coffee then he came and asked her for the date and he told her that he had seen her there before.
By that time Tina was rushing to work she really didn’t have time, she even never asked for his number but she just requested him that they could meet in the same place the next day. Unfortunately, he didn’t turn up for the appointment the next day so she just got her coffee and left.
As fate would have it three months later, she passed by the same coffee shop to get what to eat after work and there he was, he apologized for the past disappointment that it was not intentional and he had actually over slept by the time he woke up it was too late for their planned date.
They ended up having their first date that same day and rest is history. Listening to this amazing love story we went ahead with incorporating this in their wedding by choosing small cute coffee bags as their wedding gift favors for their guests to commemorate the start of their love story.

The couple said I DO at the Miracle Centre Cathedral Rubaga on December 29th 2020 at 10am officiated by the senior pastor – Pr. Robert Kayanja.
At exactly 10am the bride walked down the aisle graced by her parents Mr and Mrs Nsubuga with shackles (praise you) by, Mary Mary playing on the speakers. It was all merry and teary as the congregation stood and witnessed the start of happily ever after.
Once the pastor declared them the Malones, they sealed it with the kiss and we were ready to party.
Following the exchange of heart felt vows, the guests were welcomed with the famous Buganda traditional dance by the crane performers at the Lake Victoria Serena Kigo at the colosseum gardens.
With the signature cocktails they were invited to the reception with long white walkaway and crystal chandeliers.
The decorator of the day I candy understood the concept of a gold and crystal wedding she gave it a shimmer and shinning modern look by mixing glass golden tables and cream table linen.
