Nicole & Elgero Wedding Blog – Usambara Venue

We met El and Nicole in our homes shortly after their Engagement, in the middle of their planning for their Wedding Day.

And we immediately could see the love they had for each other. He had this look in his eyes, of awe and wonder when El looked at his Fiance. Nicole reciprocated every chance she got.

After sharing their hopes and dreams, and plans for their wedding at Usambara, we all agreed that MEEK MEDIA would be the perfect fit for their Photography portraits and video.

We had an engagement Portrait session at the scenic tree-filled fields of St Barnabas College. This was an opportunity for the couple to become acquainted with the basics of posing and to have a fun time before the pressure of their Wedding Day.

And what a Wedding day it was!

Nicole was early at the Bridal suite at Usumbara to prepare. Her make-up and hair were done by the experienced XXXXX.
It was difficult for her parents to hold back the tears when seeing their beautiful daughter.

Elgero and his groomsmen arrived on time to quickly prepare and get dressed, well in time for a fun portrait session with the guys.

Although he appeared confident on the outside, there was a bit of nervousness. And who wouldn’t be, on such a big ocassion!


The wedding Ceremony was amazing, a celebration of the Couple’s love for each other and honoring Christ by their marriage.

The Chapel and Gardens at Usumbara made for a beautiful and scenic backdrop for the Family and Bridal Portraits. The bride complement her husband beautifully in all their portraits, and looked stunning when crossing the bridge to the Venue for the Reception.

Music playing, Lights dimmed, the Bridal party entered, followed by a loud cheer and applause as Elgero and Nicole entered.


The night passed quickly, as the bridal Couple’s parents, family and friends shared speeches of the Groom and the Bride, their compatibility and suitability for one another.

A party followed, one of note. Celebrations, cake cutting and dancing was a fitting end to an eventful and blessed day with the newlyweds, Mr and Mrs Maraba
