The rustic wedding setting does not demand the opulence of traditional weddings that in most instances are held in hotels or other special wedding venues. They best work with the outdoor setting which is clearly the easiest way to really get that rustic feel. The idea behind a rustic theme is to incorporate nature and all of it’s beauty into your big day. In addition, creativity is required where the couple can express their individuality, taste and preference.
Many personal touches can be incorporated in a rustic wedding reception . Guests can be greeted with chalkboard signs on wedding sentiments, directions, or anything that meets the couple’s fancy. Signs can also be painted on wood or other natural materials outlining the day’s activities or menu. Guests will be seated at long tables draped with clean, white tablecloths accented with burlap runners and wildflowers that burst with vibrant colors. The best thing about rustic weddings is that they lack of predictability and cannot be able make distinctive differences come together in a delightful way, creating a feast for the senses.
Most couples do not understand the significance of having a great MC host their wedding. To cut costs, they either use their sanguine uncle or their best friend who most often than not ends up killing the vibe or being partisan in the wedding. The main role of a Master of Ceremonies is to “conduct” the entire event. A good MC should ensure that the program runs smoothly, runs on time and that all important people at the event are introduced in a complimentary, professional manner. As Kimaru Maina, an associate MC at Sisimsha Entertainment puts it, a couple should consider the three C’s, which are Competence, Character and Chemistry before signing up an MC.
Here is is a brief interview that we had on who he is and what being an MC is all about:
1. What do you love the most about working in the wedding industry?
I love what weddings represent. I believe my purpose on earth is to paint a picture of what God originally intended marriage for marriages: and what a better way to begin this painting than to be with couples as they begin their beautiful journey of marriage.
2. What is Sisimsha Entertainment known for?
Sisimsha entertainment is a team of fun lively yet professional MC.s. These are the qualities that most people love about us. The first job of an MC is to bring life to a wedding i.e make sure everyone at the wedding has the time of their life. The second half which is equally important, is to professionally manage the wedding i.e make sure the wedding runs on time while managing the program participants yet with utmost respect. We pride in being amongst the very few MC.s who simultaneously bring fun and efficiency at a wedding.
3. What inspires you?
Seeing a couple happy: I will continue being a wedding MC for so long as I see couples enjoying themselves as they begin their journey of marriage.
4. What are the current trends?
Interesting to note is how more and more couples desire to dance and to have everyone in their wedding join them in a dancing. While comedy was a great form of entertainment years back, dancing seems to be taking the center stage more and more.
5. What is the most challenging aspect of your job?
Every wedding should be unique just as the wedding couple is unique. I therefore have to reinvent myself as an MC, to make sure I uniquely customize each wedding to meet the desire of the couple. It is not always an easy job, but it is for this reason that we work as a band of MC.s so we can continue to bring original funky ideas that spice up any wedding we entertain.
6. What is Sisimsha Entertainment’s focus this year?
For the years 2014 and 2015, Sisimsha Entertainment has embarked on raising the level of professionalism offered by MC in the wedding industry: to retire the uncles and cousins from having to work in their relative’s wedding. While we remain humbled by the level of confidence we have received in this industry, we desire that many more MC. in the market offer equally great standards of competence. In effect, this will raise the bar of professionalism in the art of being an MC in the wedding industry.
Finally as the Swahili saying goes ’hayawi hayawi huwa’, the King Of Kapungala aka Daddy Owen finally tied the knot last weekend to his long term fiancee Farida Wambui. It was an all white affair for the groom and grooms men, where his brother Rufftone was his best man and Eric Omondi part of his grooms men for the day. For the ladies they dawned in pink dresses with orange and white flowers bouquet. The invite only ceremony was held at the Kenya Assembly of God Church in Buruburu .
Though a few of celebrities turned up for the church ceremony, the ceremony was beautiful the church decor was simple and elegant. Daddy Owen could not hide his joy after putting a ring on it and then came the most awaited time when the preacher said ‘now you may kiss the bride’ and the crowd went like aaaw though the couple were a bit shy but they sailed through the moment.
The wedding was followed by a beautiful reception party at Radson Blu hotel, present were top leaders in government Kabete Mp Ferdinand Waititu and Dennis Itumbi who delivered the best wishes on behalf of the President. Also in attendance were celebrities like Jaguar, Nameless, Wahu, Esther Wahome, Jalang’o the list is endless. Entertaining the audience was Dj Sadiq, Mercy Masika with her hit song mwema, Esther Wahome and Sauti Sol .
Offcourse what did you expect from the western region fellows other that great music and dance, the gests in attendance were shocked to see ‘Baba yao’ shaking his shoulders like it was the end of the world.
The reception party was topped with great food catered by the same hotel. To the newly weds we wish them a happy marriage full of Gods’ blessings.
