How they met

The two lovebirds met at a friend’s wedding in Kampala over ten years ago. The two were on a summer holiday after school in London.

“When I arrived at the wedding, I found him discussing with my sister and I asked her, ‘who is this guy’? And she told me he is Sakaria. We talked a little on that day, it was quite a funny meeting,” Sheena said.

“We became good friends though I never imagined he was my future husband. Interestingly, my whole family including my father, my mother, my brother, used to tease me about him. He is my dream husband only that it took me long to realize it because everything about him is all I wanted from a man,” Sheena added.

Fully funded by Sudhir

Just like it was during the Meera and Ravi wedding over two years ago, Sheena and Jay’s wedding has been fully funded by Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia. Unlike the normal Ugandan wedding, Sudhir didn’t fundraise for his daughter’s wedding.

Godfrey Kirumira, the Chairman of Kwagalana Group, of wealthy businessmen who come together to fundraise for similar events among their members said that, “This was entirely on Sudhir and Jyotsna’s wallet.”
