“It means you are ready to take on whatever life throws at you, like in your vows that you have said today,

“In sickness and in health, through the good times and the bad, for richer or poor you will be each other’s guardian.

“It won’t be easy but with God, then nothing and no one can break you two apart.”

Her older brother Jack Seumanutafa describes his younger sister as a very humble person.

“She is the kind of person that when she sets her mind into something she makes sure she gets it,” he told the Sunday Samoan.

“She loves her family and she always prioritises us and especially our parents.”

Speaking of the bride and groom Jack said they have been courting for about six years now.

“The two lovebirds met when Ken was running a stand for his father and my sister was working at Treasury,” he said.
