Following their recent getaway in Italy after tying the knot earlier this year, Former Miss South Africa, Dr Tamaryn Green Nxumalo and her husband, Ze Nxumalo completed their nuptials with an “Umabo” ceremony over the weekend in KwaZulu-Natal.

The celebration comes after their lavish white wedding in April, and the couple has been sharing their nuptial journey on social media since their engagement in 2020.

The couple’s budding romance began after they met in 2018, however, they only made it official in 2019. Thereafter, they got engaged in April 2020, at the Singita Sweni Lodge in Kruger National Park, followed by a traditional celebration known as “Umembeso”, last year.
