The love story between Koina and Steve is one that for long will dwell in our hearts and linger in our minds for ages after the couple won the Big Wedding season 5 of Capital FM Uganda.
As revealed in their letter at the start of the competition, Koina and Steve met at Virgin Island (now temptations lounge) in Bugolobi on one of those nights she never wanted to go out at all but had forced herself to do so. But then, who knew that a stroll at the Virgin Islands would bring a lifetime partner.
In the first three minutes of Steve meeting Koina, he had told her he loved to party, worked upcountry and wanted her to be his wife. Unless indeed you’re destined to be like these two, who asks a woman to be their wife the first time he meets her. Strange as that may sound, that’s what Steve did and three months later, she said “Yes” (That’s like winning the lottery). That marked the start of him calling her 5 times a day and it’s now six years down the road and they are still counting.
Having emerged winners of the competition (the Big Wedding Season 5), Steve and Koina went on to tie the knot on Saturday 5th August 2017 at St Steven’s Church of Uganda in Kireka. Before hosting their guests at Grace gardens in Lubowa, the couple had a photo shoot that Speke Resort Munyoyo.
Three months down the road, after the Big Wedding, the two lovebirds have finally today morning departed for London for their honeymoon aboard RwandaAir, one of the sponsors of the ‘Big Wedding Season 5’.
