Having already planned everything, they saw no reason to call it off but tried their best to enjoy the moment.

The wedding was held on Friday, April 10, at the Emmanuel Baptist Church as both dressed perfectly as earlier planned for the occasion.

It was attended by only 10 guests after their number was cut from an initial 400.

During an interview with Citizen TV, Zipporah disclosed that she attended the event with only four friends, all in masks.

"I went to the event with my four friends armed with marks that I will indeed keep for my children to see," she said.

Ancent talked about watching his wife walk down the aisle alone with no parents escorting her.

"The biggest difference was having no parents and as usual on wedding day parents escort their daughter but this time she came on her own, but the moment I looked at her gown, I was at peace," he said.

The couple had issued an apology to their families who would eventually miss out on their big day.

The parents gave them their blessings and wished the best for the couple and they printed out the messages to remember the big day.

The two had planned the wedding since June 2019, on an initial budget of KSh 430,000 which was cut down to about KSh 70,000.

Meanwhile, NTV's news anchor Zeynab Ismail and Citizen TV's Ahmed Faizal are newlyweds.

The two tied the knot in a low key wedding witnessed by a few friends and family on Sunday, April 12, 2020.

The news was shared by a Twitter user named Ahmed Asmali Mohamed who congratulated the two for their union.

Zeynab also shared her joy on her Instagram as she posted a cryptic photo of herself and captioned it: "Alhamdulilah."

These events have displayed how lovers have taken the bold step to be together forever even in the midst of a global crisis.
