On April 11, 2020, Alice Mukulu and Richard Kasibante exchanged vows at Makerere Full Gospel Church. Amidst the Coronavirus crisis that had the entire country on lockdown.
Alice looked amazing in a white Cinderella gown that she managed to hire one day to the wedding. When asked on how she pulled this off, Alice says she had actually ordered a gown from abroad but due to the current crisis, it didn’t get shipped in. Uganda had reinforced the lockdown for two weeks to her wedding.
However, she had to pull some strings and used the help of a friend to contact a bridal store around town that made things happen.
The groom also managed to get access to a grey tuxedo.
On the day of the ceremony, the laws were strict and only 11 people were allowed inside the church. However, some of their friends and family stood outside or near the windows to witness the couple as they exchanged their vows.
After exchanging their vows, the bride sang a gospel song as a way of showing her gratefulness to the Lord for enabling this day to happen.
The couple didn’t have a reception but after the church ceremony, they managed to cut a cake outside the church with the majority of their guests that had walked all the way from their homes to witness the wedding.
They were later surprised with a luncheon at a friend’s house.
When it came to transport, the couple had to get a clearance from the RDC to permit them to use a vehicle.
On asking why they didn’t postpone the wedding until the lockdown was over, Alice says she and her husband had prayed about it and they knew it was the right time, so they made the decision.
The wedding was also live-streamed on Gugude Television for those of their friends that didn’t manage to come to the actual wedding.
My Wedding wishes them a happy and lovely marriage.
