Jazz sensation Edith WeUtonga dazzled young couples with her sweet melodies at a bridal awards ceremony recently.
The event honoured couples whose weddings were hosted at the Buxton Farm between 2010 and 2011.
With the backing of her band Utonga, which was driven in a luxurious limousine, Edith belted out tunes from her old and upcoming albums with songs such as Rudo, Famba Naye and Chipedani proving popular.
Her prowess on the bass guitar kept the guests on their feet the whole night.
Speaking at the event, the owner of the farm, Farai Breakfast, thanked couples for hosting their weddings at her new venue.
I would like to thank all the couples who had faith in us when we constructed this place. These awards are unique in that we are thanking you for enriching our family, said Breakfast.
Buxton Farm is a beautifully landscaped garden overlooking Mukuvisi River with lovely green lawns dotted with balancing rocks.
The ceremony kicked off with Kimani, a leading bridal wear shop, parading the latest in bridal fashion.
For some of the married couples it was their first time returning to a place where they exchanged marriage vows.
One could not help but notice the many present lovebirds as they flaunted their inflated tummies, evidence that they had indeed heeded the command to multiply and fill the earth.
Some exhibition of flamboyance among guests was inevitable since Buxton Farm, situated near Hopley, about 17km from the city centre off the Harare-Masvingo highway is known for its bling-bling weddings.
Winners in the Bride and Couple of the Year 2010 and Bride and Couple of the Year 2011 walked away with fabulous holiday prizes.
The best dressed bride attendant went to former Miss Masvingo and Miss Tourism second princess 2010, Tafadzwa Mugazambi-Meki, who was clad in a striking orange dress.
Mugazambi-Meki, who wedded last October, seems to be enjoying married life as much as she did the catwalk as evidenced by her ever-present smile.
Six couples present also won a boat cruise at Kariba.
The night belonged to Tavengwa Masara and Faulen Chirikeni who won a free wedding hosting courtesy of Buxton Farm.
The two who are to be married in August had earlier won a free flower supply from a local florist.
