Philip Oucor, the NRM MP Flag bearer for Serere County for the 2021 elections has wedded sweetheart, Sarah Assimwe, a banker. The couple tied the knot on Saturday, September 19, 2020, at All saints Cathedral Kampala. The ceremony was officiated by the Rt Bishop of Bukedi Diocese, Dr Nichodemus Okile Engwalas and assisted by the very Rev Canon Dr Rebecca Nyegenye provost of ASC.
On the wedding day, the excited legislator while posting photos of his big day wrote, “Today, I present to you my one and only who has walked down the aisle with me as we prepare for long journeys ahead. One of the most special days in my life is Saying, “I DO”
The groom and his entourage were smartly dressed in three-piece black suits paired with bow ties of the same color.
The bride wore a ballroom gown with a sweetheart design at the bossom. She accessorised her well designed natural hair with a princess tiara and long veil.
Assimwe also went minimal with make-up and accessories where only she wore stud earrings and a bracelet.
Her matron wore a silver short-sleeved floor-length dress which made her stand out from the rest of the bridesmaids. The bridesmaids wore off shoulder body hanging maroon floor length dresses and matched their outfits with face masks of the same colour. They also carried cream bouquets with shades of purples flowers.
The couple later had a reception at Speke Resort Munyonyo for their family and friends. At the reception party, the groom changed to an African-inspired long-sleeved shirt that had white and black designs paired with trousers of the same colour.
The bride also changed to a short-sleeved body hanging mermaid gown. She accessorised her natural hair with a lovely headband.
Their traditional ceremony took place on September12, 2020, at the home of Assimwe’s parents in Kanungu. It was attended by prominent personalities like Dr Chris Baryomunsi, the State Minister for Housing and the incumbent MP of Kanungu, Kinkizi County East.
The wedding ceremony comes after Oucor was able to win, Mr Patrick Okabe during the elections for NRM flag bearers at the beginning of this month.
Before Oucor picked interest in joining politics, he was known in the corporate world as the head sales, capability and distribution at Crown Beverages Limited.
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Oucor on your wedding story and we wish you the best on your new journey together.
