Wedding - They Say, There Is Something About Nurses

On January 16, Barbara Njuki introduced Derek Galiwango to her family in Kasubi-Lubya.

While the Njukis and their friends were waiting for the their guests by 1pm, Galiwango and his entourage arrived at 3pm smart in Ganda ceremonial attire of kanzu and gomesi, driving very expensive cars.

Like is required in Buganda culture, they came with three gourds of local beer, one of which symbolizes acceptance if the girl's family receives it; thus, a few members of Galiwango's team first took this gourd straight to Njuki's house.

After the fanfare that included different family members coming out of the family home to greet the guests, Njuki first made an appearance wearing a yellow-and- black gomesi, and a triumphant smile.

She later changed into a red-and-black gomesi as Galiwango's sisters presented her with a special gift and message from a beaming groom, who is traditionally not expected to say much during the function.


The couple met at a clinic where Njuki was working as a nurse.

"My husband had come for treatment and with all the care I gave him, I think it is the reason as to why I am with him till now," Njuki says.

Njuki says Galiwango spent like a month visiting the clinic almost daily, but she did not immediately realise what he was up to.

"I love Galiwango! He is a very patient and humble person. He is very trustworthy and handsome. I really trust him and he is my best friend," she says. "Our love with him has never declined ever since we met. The fact that my parents have also allowed him into the family, only blessings are to follow."

Galiwango is a manager for planning and development and a lecturer at Kyambogo University, while Njuki is still a nurse. They have been together for seven years and have two children.

The couple promised their parents and friends a church wedding "anytime soon".

My favourite time of the year - wedding season - is well and truly here. The warm, sunny days make summer the perfect time for couples to tie the knot. There's always something fabulous about attending a wedding in the open air.

Whether you're a guest or part of the wedding party, a gorgeous array of choices is available, from colourful maxi dresses to softer, feminine separates in pretty pastel tones, depending on the dress code and location.

Whether it's a picturesque vineyard, tropical garden or romantic beach setting, take the stress out of finding something to wear. Here's my wedding guest style report to help you look your very best on their big day.

Liam Celebrations' Monument dress will make you the toast of the wedding party. This exquisite v-necked dress has a soft waist tie that cinches in the waist perfectly. It also works easily as a fail-safe choice for bridesmaids.

Dress to the nines in Trish Peng's J'adore dress. Made out of a beautiful Dior fabric, the structured design of this stunning dress highlights a curvy figure and is elegance personified.

The former Pussycat Doll was among stars to watch Jennifer Lopez’s first night of All I Have

Being a former Pussycat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger certainly knows how to ramp up her sex appeal.

The former X Factor judge showed off her incredible body as she walked the red carpet at Jennifer Lopez’s opening night for her Las Vegas residency in a glittering mini-dress.

Brunette beauty Nicole wore her honey locks straight and teamed the look with a pair of killer nude pumps.

She joined stars including Rebel Wilson, Justin Bieber and Kelly Osbourne for the opening night.

The mother of-two went all out to make the most of her best assets as JLo put them on full display on her opening night in Las Vegas.

The star entertained the star-studded audience with super-sexy dances and 10 costume changes to match as she hit the stage at AXIS Theater in Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino to kick off her residency.

JLo, 46, began her ‘All I Have’ residency on Wednesday night, complete with hover boards and incredible choreography.

Talking to PEOPLE after the show, JLo - who walked the red carpet with her boyfriend Casper Smart - admitted she was absolutely chuffed with how it went.

She said: "It was spectacular.

“We wanted to create a really unique show that was really unique to Vegas that only I could do, and I really felt like we did that."

The superstar pulled off the 90-minute show and took the audience through her music career and even surprised the audience with guest appearances from Ja Rule, Ne-Yo and Pitbull.
