If Malawi had a list of top most weddings of the year this could probably make it into the top list.

Just married: Victor Kandiado and Elizabeth

Match made in heaven: Kandiado’s

It happened last Saturday, September 30 in the capital Lilongwe when the engineer cum entrepreneur Victor Kandiado wedded his love of life Elizabeth Chetama in what has become the talk of the town.

Kandiado is also the Managing Director of Makwelero, a local pharmaceutical company.

The wedding did not only leave guests mesmerized but it has also been trending on social media platforms like Facebook and whatsup.

“It was so unique to see the cake stacked on a tree. This was amazing and it is my first experience” One of the guests confessed to this reporter.

“ I am not usually a fan of fancy weddings but I salute this. There was some creativity, you can see all this from the design and everything. Surely this was a unique wedding” read one of the many posts on the Facebook Victors page.

In an interview the groom disclosed that they spent close to five million kwacha on the wedding which was officiated at St. Patricks Catholic Parish in Area 18 and guests were treated to a sumptuous reception at Golden Peackok hotel.

“ We chose a vintage theme, starting from dressing to the cake display. My bowtie and pocket piece were made of jute(chiguduli). The bowties of the groomsmen and the flower decorations were also all made of jute,” said Kandiado.

Kandiado said that his wife also made her hair nails and makeup herself as a matter of serving costs.

Kandiado hails from Jambo village in the area of traditional authority Jambo in Nsanje district whilst his wife Elizabeth hails from Chankoma village in the area of traditional authority Nsakambewa in Dowa district.

Elizabeth is sales manager in South Africa.

The cake stand, if it’s a real tree then the footprint of weddings to deforestation is going to increase soon, besides the firewood and charcoal they use for cooking wedding food in the face of persistent blackouts in Malawi.


Just reuse the cake stand. It can be reused so many times

We were there, but the writing is an exaggeration. It was just an average wedding.

You are a typical Malawian. Always unappreciative.
