Nicholas Arineitwe and his wife Florence Najjumba have an interesting love story. The two chose and still choose to live simply and love deeply.
On their wedding day, Nicholas and his better half woke up early, put on their wedding attire, showed up to the church and he went to back to work minutes after saying his vows.
The couple told mywedding.ug they walked down the aisle on 31 October 2019 and it was the best day of their lives.
Nicholas, who is a visual artist, did not want to waste time so he hopped onto a 'bodaboda' as soon as he was told to kiss his bride.
His 28-year-old wife headed home to entertain her guests.
Later in the day, the 32-year-old groom returned home for a little get-together with his friends and family.
He and his wife then took photos and afterwards enjoyed each other’s company.
Their whole ceremony was not a fluke and it was always planned to run how it did.
The lovebirds always fancied holding an intimate wedding and did not see the need to overplay the whole event.
Ever since they started dating, the couple thought it wise to stick to the basics.
“My husband returned later in the evening and we took a few pictures and had an indoor celebration with a few family members and friends,” Florence said.
Nicholas insisted his decision was not driven by an empty bank account and admitted some people cannot understand why they chose their unique path.
“We did not organise a simple and affordable wedding because we lacked the money but we always wanted something simple and intimate,” the 32-year-old noted.
According to the happy husband, some of his relatives got so worried they tried to pay for the couple’s expenses.
The two met back in 2012 while they were still university students.
For Nicholas, it was love at first sight and he knew immediately he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Florence.
They have two kids together.
