The Covid 19 pandemic came with the worst effects in 202, but for Beverley Seda and Edward Muza, it came with love. The lockdown made it difficult for people to meet hence the rise in virtual meetings, which is how the two met, via WhatsApp. They were from the same church, but they didn’t know.
The couple had their first date on the 28th of June 2020. For a long time, Beverley had been playing hard to get but eventually they connected, they grew and their love rose to another level. Edward surprised Beverley with an engagement ring on the 29th of January 2021. Lobola was then planned eight months later, on the 4th of September 2021. The wedding preparations then began.
The couple worked as a team in planning the wedding, which made everything else easier. Their relatives and friends also ensured that the wedding was a success by giving them their full support. On the 18th of April, the couple exchanged their vows at Monsha Mia in Pretoria. It was a simple yet elegant intimate wedding.
The couple was surrounded by a few family and friends. The theme colours were white, maroon, and gold, and the décor was elegantly done, bringing out the beauty of the colours. The wedding looked like a 2022 wedding as all artifacts had to do with the 2022 wedding trends. The most memorable moment of the day was when the bride walked down the aisle with both her parents as they handed her over to her husband.
This was an ideal wedding and given a chance, the couple wouldn’t change a thing. Their relationship has taught them that true love exists and it is real. “God’s timing is always the best at all times and love conquers all,” said Beverly. As for advice to future brides, Beverly says: “Know what you want and don’t settle for less. Go for what you can afford. Always be truthful to yourself and when it comes to wedding planning, work as a team with your husband.”
