Asio Bernadette aka Detta who works with UNRA and Rodgers Bayise, a surveyor met at a mutual friend’s wedding. They both served on the wedding planning committee and worked closely. They became friends and started dating a year later. Detta tells their engagement story.
On his birthday, this year, we went on a getaway. As we were having breakfast, the waiter came to our table to inform us that the photographer had arrived. I asked Rodgers why we hadn’t taken the photos while in Kampala. He told me that he wanted his birthday to be extra special. And that, he was also tired of me asking him to take my pictures from every other beautiful spot of the place we were staying at.
We went ahead to pick our clothes and got on with it. When we moved to the water deck, he expressed his fatigue while for me it felt like I was just getting ready to begin.😂 Anyway, I kept taking pictures as he stood at the back and the photographer kept giving me various poses. He asked me to turn at once on turning there, he was on his knee asking for my hand in marriage…
I couldn’t hear what else he was saying. All I heard was, “will you marry me?” I shivered as I replied with the surest “Yes” of my entire life. I thank God for that.
