TUMI AND PETER
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.
