Lockdown was a hard time for everyone in South Africa but it surely was even harder on those who were less fortunate. Those who were homeless had to endure harassment from the authorities and also had to fight hunger. However, newlyweds Daniel and Amber Kepkey weathered the storm.
During this week, the two lovebirds got married in their dream wedding thanks to a community worker, Dawn Roode, who set the whole thing up.
A number of people who are homeless and good samaritans gathered at Roode's home in Kuils River to celebrate the union between Daniel and Amber. This took place after the two sealed their marriage at the Bellville magistrate's court.
The bride, Amber said: “It’s a day I will never forget. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that our wedding would turn out the way it did. I felt like a queen."
The lovebirds met whilst they were still staying with their parents and met at a local supermarket. Daniel said that he fell in love with Amber the moment he laid eyes on her. He proposed to her at a shopping mall in September and they made arrangements to exchange vows soon.
The wedding organiser, Roode set up the wedding so that she could heal from her own trauma. She had lost a number of family and friends to COVID-19. She said that after the couple told her about their wedding plans, she made sure that she would make it special.
"I had asked the Lord to show me something positive that I could do for others as I wanted to get out of the space I was in," she said.
Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
