Police also deployed around the church and along all roads leading to the cathedral.
The couple exchanged their vows at 12:20pm in the service that was presided over the sub dean of St. Peters Cathedral Rugarama, Rev. Geoffrey Tukamuhabwa.
Preaching during the service, Rev. Tukamuhabwa asked the couple to protect their marriage vows. He also asked wives to be faithful and submissive to their husbands if they are to live at peace in their families.
