Ashraf Ashaba and Happy Kyomuhangi tied the knot back in December 2018 after dating for close to a year and a half.

Happy, a magistrate in Uganda, was first admired by Ashaba, a journalist, who was covering a story in her courtroom and strived to get her number from the security team, according to My Wedding UG.

The journalist cheekily invited Happy for an interview and when the two finally sat down, he knew she was the one.

"During the interview, I admired her soft and sweet voice. I, therefore, kept in touch with calls and WhatsApp. I started out as a friend but with interests beyond," Ashaba said.

Happy, as you would expect, had a different view of how she started noticing Ashaba. She said she bumped into him during their days at Islamic University in Uganda, where she worked as a part-time teacher and he also used to work at the same institution.

Ashaba said he fell for her because of her beauty and hardworking qualities while Happy noted he was charming, sincere plus God-fearing.

Happy was also smitten after Ashaba showed up with beautiful flowers during one of their dates, saying she loved flowers and this made her feel they were on to something.

"After several coffee dates he always sang for me love songs, told me nice love stories for a long period and that is how I fell for him. He became more attractive, caring and loving," she noted.

Ashaba later on proposed in the presence of a few family members and in August 2018 they had their traditional wedding in Katabi, Entebbe.

Later on that year the two tied the knot at a beautiful wedding and were happy to see so many people turn up to celebrate their union.

In a similar wedding story, YEN.com.gh reported about a mother of two who prayed that she does not deliver her child on her wedding day.

Barbara Tusiime wedded the love of her life Martin Arinda at a beautiful ceremony on Saturday, September 5.

However, the festivities were the last thing on her mind as she was nine months pregnant and had only a few days to go before delivering her second child.

Barbara said she did not want her baby to arrive before tying the knot adding pregnancy is the only thing she would have changed from the big day.

She advised pregnant women planning for a wedding to have someone to count on as the situation is stressful and can lead to early labour.
