In a video sighted by Briefly.co.za on the official Instagram handle of Facts and Truths, the wedding was held outside the chapel to avoid going against the president's orders for all church services to be suspended.

The names and exact location of the couple are not disclosed. The video has gone so viral that the spouses are already becoming known figures.
