Johannesburg - Rina Chungakutama, a local designer originally from Zambia, recently tied the knot in a bohemian-themed African print wedding.
She married her long time beau, a local Venda photographer, who she met at varsity.
The wedding looked like something straight out of an African fairytale.
Rina is known to have dressed multitudes of celebrities in her Richfactory signature African print designs, and her wedding reflected her brand and style philosophy.
The pictures below capture the magical day, which has been trending on Instagram.
A huge huge shout out to @lumbre.event who made every element our day special, from the perfect hotel near the venue to the perfect palm tree leaf bouquet and our own print backdrop. The African mats for seating and accommodating the elders into our African Bohemian theme. Absolutely perfect in every way. Thank you @imara_pallet_designs for partnering with @lumbre.event.

@lumbre.event just got my brief and executed so perfectly. This pic here gives the full mood... imagine this with amazing live music and a plate of hooves, Jollof, samp and a whole lot of other traditional food. ❤️ #kutamafest I’m gonna find a good pic of a plate and post it
