Tears are often shed at weddings–sometimes by the bride, other times it’s members of the wedding party or perhaps family and friends in attendance but in the case of one couple in London, the groom dropped all the tears when he saw his beautiful bride walking down the aisle.
The couple, Gabriel and Annabelle Deku, met at Portsmouth University and started off as study buddies before things got serious and it didn’t take long for a relationship to bloom.
A video from their May 14th nuptials have emerged and let’s just say that emotions were high when love was in the air on the Deku’s big day.
The nearly two mintute clip shows Annabelle walking down the aisle and Gabriel crying so passionately, one of his groomsmen had to help calm him in order for him to exchange vows with his bride!
Deku told Buzzfeed that the emotions of the day overcame him as Annabelle walked towards him and he just couldn’t keep it together.
“At the time we met, I had given up hope on this whole love thing,” he said. “I thought this idea of having a life partner who would love and respect me unconditionally was only a story only told in movies. But, I was wrong! True love does exist.”
Indeed it does!
Watch the video below and help us wish these two nothing but the best.
