Alexander Smith once said that ?love is the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.? Evelyn Lwanga and Paddy B Ssematimba discovered love in each other and delighted in its recognition on their wedding day.
According to Evelyn Lwanga, an HR Practitioner, she and her significant other, Paddy B Ssematimba, a fashion designer met at her auntie?s home in Lungujja.
Asked about how the two met, the bride said; ?at my auntie?s home in Lungujja in 2007. He was a friend to my cousin brother.?
The duo ?dated for 3 years before? Paddy asked for Evelyn?s hand in marriage when ?he proposed in 2010?. They went on to ?move in together, but did not make any official moves till 2018!?
Blessed with a daughter already, Paris Mitchelle Mulungi, the couple decided to make it things official and traditionally got hitched on ?1st September 2018 at my parents? home in Seeta ? Mukono,? according to the bride.
