The pair began dating in 2019. The same year she graduated with her seven-year Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree (MBChB) at the University of Cape Town. This was the year after Tamaryn was crowned Miss South Africa in 2018.
Nxumalo took the relationship to the next level when he proposed to Tamaryn in April 2021. at Sweni Lodge in the Kruger National Park. Ze took the second step towards making Tamaryn his wife in June this year with the lobola negotiations. Lobola is the traditional “bridal wealth” paid by the man to the family of his wife-to-be in the form of livestock or other means.
Tamaryn and Nxuamlo then held their umembeso ceremony in October 2021. Umembeso is a process in the traditional Zulu wedding where the groom gives gifts to the bride’s family, following the lobola negotiations.
THE MAGICAL UMEMBESO CEREMONY
Tamaryn looked beautiful in her traditional attire for the umembeso. She said they were “showered with blessings” at the beginning of the day but the day just turned around and the sun came out.
“Woke up on this morning to the sound of rain and I remember thinking this is God showering us with His blessings. It might be a muddy day but so it will be. Then at 11am, just as our event started, the clouds gave way and the beauty of my home town revealed itself as the sun shone down on us. I’m so happy to have introduced my new family and friends to Paarl,” she wrote.
“I could not have asked for a more fun, loving special day celebrating with God at the centre. Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes. We really appreciate it 🙏🏽💙,” she continued.
