Nyom Profile

Who We Are

‘Nyom’ is a Luo word for marriage. The Luo ethnicity is part of the ancient Nilotics who migrated into East Africa several hundred years ago from Ethiopia.

They occupied most of Western Kenya, Northern Tanzania, Eastern and Nothern Uganda as well as most of South Sudan.

Since time immemorial the Luo have been known for their animated marriage traditions most notably the Ayie ('I agree') or Ayie Keny (‘I agree to marriage’) ceremony which included the energetic cultural dances known as Larakaraka in Uganda or Ohangla in Kenya and Tanzania.

A typical Luo wedding combined serenity and romance; vigour and enthusiasm as well as merrymaking. Nyom Planet recreates this universe.

Our Mission: To make weddings hustle free

Meet the Team

Operations Planner

Making sure couples have a stress-free wedding is my specialty. I have spent the last couple of years understanding the dynamics of the wedding industry. As a certified wedding planner, I listen to couples’ desires and concerns and tailor wedding packages to meet their needs. I reside in Uganda with my family. When I am not spending time with them or assisting couples in planning beautiful wedding ceremonies, you can find me watching movies.

Event Day Planner

I love seeing other people happy and nothing beats seeing couples happy on their wedding days. To make couples happy, I strive to make weddings as affordable and hustle free for couples as possible. As events day planner, I vet vendors to make sure that they meet the required standards before adding them to the site. I also do most of our digital marketing. I am also a certified wedding planner.
