A young couple got married in a simple wedding ceremony at Calvary Chapel in Entebbe, Uganda on Saturday, April 4, 2020, and it epitomizes simplicity.
Zoen Harrold from California and Gorret Namaseruka, a Ugandan, were both dressed in casual wears made with African prints without any hustle of a wedding gown and other related fanfare.
Reports say the ceremony that was graced by a one Pastor Isaac, only had 10 people present, including a police O.C that was available for tight security.
In spite of the novel coronavirus plaguing countries across the world amid lockdown, love may just be one of the few things that the awful virus is not preventing from manifesting.

However, it is the resilience of people in love that has ensured that what they shared could not be conquered or locked up amid the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Prior to the outbreak of the virus, most people held lavish and flamboyant weddings.
Now, with the social distancing measure that has become a necessity to help stem the spread of the COVID-19, social gatherings such as weddings, church services, schools have been banned temporarily but people who are bent on marrying during this critical period have been doing so without inviting many guests as it used to be the case.
