No tears over wet wed­ding

The Citizen (KZN) - - NEWS -

– A beam­ing bride de­fi­antly march­ing up a flooded church aisle in the Philip­pines has won hearts as the coun­try suf­fers more mon­soon rains.

Jo­bel De­los An­ge­les, 24, mar­ried the fa­ther of her two chil­dren on Satur­day as Trop­i­cal Storm Yagi and the south­west mon­soon brought heavy flood­ing to Manila and nearby ar­eas, in­clud­ing their home prov­ince of Bu­la­can.

In a Face­book video shared over a thou­sand times, De­los An­ge­les is all smiles as she walks through brown flood­wa­ters in a white gown and veil be­fore her suited groom clad in flipflops takes her to the al­tar.

“Even if it floods or it rains, noth­ing can stop me. You only get mar­ried once, I was mar­ry­ing the man I love,” De­los An­ge­les said. – AFP
