Waiguru exchanged her marriage vows with the love of her life Kamotho Waiganjo in a colorful ceremony held at the Kiamugumo Primary School.

The wedding was climaxed with the cutting of the shoulder.

In Kikuyu tradition, this 'cutting of the shoulder',  is the central point in the entire ceremony.

It is the right 'arm' of a roast goat which the groom cuts while the bride holds. When the groom is done, the bride continues holding on to the piece on her hand and the man cuts a piece and feeds her then feeds himself.

Thousands of invited guests among them President Uhuru Kenyatta  Opposition leader Raila Odinga are witnessing the event.
