Maikeli Mudu married Tavaita Ruth Bulai in Korovuto Village, Nadi, on Thursday.

Mudu, a former Fijian Warrior, is a flanker for the Mid Canterbury rugby team in New Zealand while Bulai, who is based in the United States, has set Fiji’s national record in hammer throw.

“I am glad I am married. I know I’ve a lot of responsibilities,” he said.

Bulai, originally from Nadoria, Rewa, was also glad of her big day.

“I feel like I am the queen of this world. Finally I can have him for the rest of my life and I feel really blessed,” she said.

“We met on Facebook and we started chatting. After a few months we realised that we were made for each other. He then approached my father who gave his approval,” she said.
