Akhil & Yvonne: A Naivasha Wedding

Marry Your Daughter lyrics by Brian McKnight

Akhil & I’s paths crossed on the 28 January 2012 while I was working with Etihad Airways ( UAE ) as a Cabin Crew. I was operating a flight to Frankfurt Germany and during our layover there I happened to meet Akhil and his colleagues. They walked in to the same restaurant where I was having brunch with my other crew members and they sat next to us. They told us that they wanted to go explore the city, but after spending some time with us, we were able to convince them to hang out with us. We all spent hours together laughing, joking, and finally as we were parting, he asked for my no. We said our goodnights as we had to retire early since we all had flights to catch the next day back to Abu Dhabi. In a month’s time Akhil called me and we started talking and became bossom buddies.

He then came to visit Abu Dhabi for the first time where I was based as a crew of Etihad Airways. We became good friends for about 2 years then started dating. We finally tied the knot in 2015 in DC , our traditional ceremonies followed same year. I resigned with Etihad in June 2017 and joined my husband in the USA. Our good Lord has blessed us with a handsome baby boy we also had our Kenyan wedding this year January the 12 in beautiful Naivasha. We are now expecting a baby girl and we are extremely grateful to our God for all His faithfulness towards us

Part of Yvonne’s gorgeous details for the day

Akhil and the guys getting suited up

The dapper looking gentlemen…very sharp and looking the part

Yvonne, stunning as always

We did some pictures with the girls just before they got dressed

Yvonne just about to head for the ceremony. We also took this picture with the girls as we awaited the boat ride to the ceremony

We got a boat ride to the ceremony

The Bridal Party walk in…absolutely complementing each other

Akhil walked in carrying their son, while Yvonne walked hand in hand with her folks

The vows were so beautiful, had most of us tearing up

The best man dropped a ring, I was quick to capture the moment lest he , in future, deny it 🙂

The joy & jubilation during the recessional was so thick, you could cut it with a butter-knife

Our super cute couple! Stunning with their stunners

The brothers, taking dapper to a whole new meaning

Such beautiful people to have as the subject of my lens

The girls looking breath-taking in their pop of colour

Dr. Ofweneke really got the newly weds to shake a leg, the African way

They got the moves like Jagger, the African Jagger so to say 🙂

Akhil got the honour of picking his wife from a bevy of beauties, just by the feel of his hands. I wonder how many men would succeed at this 🙂

Some last look images from this amazing couple

Definitely wishing Akhil & Yvonne the happiest life ahead…full of God’s love & blessings. You two are definitely the stuff young maidens’ dreams are made of.

Love & Blessings,

The Kiruthis
