Our Perfect Wedding artwork on Maisha Magic East

Every bride dreams of her fairy tale wedding. Every groom wants his bride to be happy and have everything she wants on this big day, the start of their lives as husband and wife. Most weddings have their fair share of drama and mayhem. The road to "I Do" is never as smooth as it looks in the end, but who doesn’t want a perfect wedding!

Beginning November 2016, Maisha Magic East (158) will bring viewers all the drama that comes with preparing for the big day in a new show titled Our Perfect Wedding (OPW).

OPW is a magazine show that will follow 14 Kenyan couples through their wedding planning process, showcasing all the drama that comes with getting the perfect dress, the perfect venue and perfect cake; not forgetting the in-laws and the traditional ceremonies that have to be concluded before the bride can walk down the aisle.

The Head of Channel for Maisha Magic East Margaret Mathore says, “Our Perfect Wedding will give viewers a front row seat to intimate lives of real couples as they plan their perfect weddings. This show is locally-casted and produced which will demonstrate Maisha Magic East’s commitment to provide premium local content on our platforms.”

Our Perfect Wedding is an exciting show that our viewers on DStv can look forward to. Things can go right or horribly wrong, and this show promises to bring the best and worst days of couples as they look forward to begin a lifetime journey together. What’s more is that one lucky couple win an all-expense paid wedding ceremony courtesy of Maisha Magic East just for watching the show,” adds Mathore.

Our Perfect Wedding has been broadcast in Southern Africa where it has received outstanding reviews and audience ratings. M-Net has selected Maisha Magic East as the next  best  home for this phenomenon show. Mathore adds, “OPW is a show of continental stature and has been viewed by millions of audiences across the continent on our partner channels. A Kenyan version of OPW is evidence of the expanding opportunity of the local production sector and further highlights the increasing contribution that Maisha Magic East makes to the local film and production sector in Kenya.”

Don't forget to tune in to Our Perfect Wedding on Maisha Magic East (158) every Thursday at 20:00 (EAT) beginning 3 November 2016.
