He texted her later that day and that was the beginning of their relationship.

Emma and Mathews are both from traditional homes, so it was a pleasure to enjoy a typical Bemba Kitchen Party. We believe that the same love they both share towards each other will continue to keep them together all through their jorney as a couple.
