Straight from the church, the newly wedded couple were taken to a cake ceremony in a marquee hall before coming to Edingeni School Ground where thousands of people had gathered to witness the proceedings.

Speaking to the new couple at the cake ceremony, President Banda congratulated the youthful Crown Prince on his wedding and wished the new couple a happy married life before presenting the couple with gifts.

Hellen Singh, chief executives of various organisations, diplomats, traditional leaders and the clergy. They all presented various gifts in form of money and materials to the newly wedded couple.
