Love was in the air amidst a buzzing New Year’s Eve in Suva City on Tuesday as a couple married, sealing their vows to each other.

Wilson Mataki and Catherine Bianca Tuivaga said this was the only date they could get all their relatives from abroad to come to Fiji.

The couple, both 29-year-olds, grew up in the same neighbourhood and were childhood friends.

“We started going out four years ago. We were friends before and we work together,” said Mrs Mataki.

The two are employed as Baristas at Weta Coffee.

They were happy with the Police presence, which ensured their family and friends who attended the wedding, were safe.

Meanwhile, not far from the wedding venue, Nakasi resident Nur Din Shah and his family were strolling through Victoria Parade.

His family had just finished dinner at MHCC and were strolling towards their vehicle parked near Dolphin’s Plaza.

“We feel Suva is safe. I would not normally work this late with my family through Victoria Parade. The Police must be commended for their work,” he said.

Mr Shah’s younger brother Zubaid was back from Labasa after two years.

He said he felt safe walking the streets with the police presence.
