Kenyan-born South Sudanese model Aweng Chuol has tied the knot with her gay partner, Alexis weeks after the two got engaged.
Aweng and Alexis exchanged marriage vows in a private wedding ceremony held on Thursday, December 12th. Aweng, who is based in New York, the United States broke the news about her marriage on social media, where she shared photos of their wedding ceremony.
“Married my best friend today. I am. GEEKED,” she captioned the photos of herself and her wife.
Aweng, who is a law student when she is not walking the runways of the fashion capitals, revealed that the wedding was a private ceremony attended by only two other people.
"We got married. We had three people in the room with us. And four people at the entire ceremony. It was for us. But wanted to share my happiness with y’all," Aweng wrote on Twitter.
Aweng announced her engagement to Alexis late last month. Aweng, 21, was born in Kakuma refugee camp in Turkana, Kenya and moved to Sydney, Australia aged 7.
