However, newlyweds Daniel and Amber Kepkey weathered the storm. During this week, the two lovebirds got married in a 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.
