Montano, who has had a long list of musical hits, wore a white suit, while his bride wore a white two-piece pants and off the shoulder top outfit with a trail attached. She wore a colorful flower hair piece.

The guests, friends and relatives of the couple, were also dressed in all white.

Media photographers were not allowed on the compound and the staff at the Parliament building, called “Red House”, lined the balcony on the top floor with their cameras in hand to record the event.

Montano was scheduled to perform at his annual “Machel Monday” last month, with the theme for the occasion being “The Wedding”.
