Tumi Sisulu’s re­gal day of flo­ral bliss.

When Tumi Sisulu, act­ing CEO of the Wal­ter Sisulu Pae­di­atric Car­diac Foun­da­tion, mar­ried Peter Shivute, con­sul­tant and en­tre­pre­neur, they wanted a cel­e­bra­tion of the union be­tween their fam­i­lies. “The ne­go­ti­a­tions and lobolo all cul­mi­nated in the per­fect wed­ding with fam­ily and friends,” Peter says. And when he saw his bride walk down the aisle he was blown away. “It was the most mag­i­cal part of the wed­ding.”

Sadly Tumi’s fa­ther, Mlungisi Sisulu, passed away shortly be­fore the wed­ding. But he had al­ready given his bless­ing – even sign­ing as wit­ness on be­half of the groom to show his ac­cep­tance of his son-in-law. “Hav­ing my brother, Linda, walk me down the aisle was very mem­o­rable – he was the per­fect stand-in for our fa­ther, who I know was look­ing down proudly,”Tumi says.
