True love truly do exist! This is the heartwarming moment a man breaks down as he sees his bride walking down the aisle. Groom Gabriel Deku, from London, was overcome with emotion as he saw his wife-to-be Annabella walking towards him at their lavish ceremony at St Martin In The Fields church at Trafalgar Square. Cameras captured the moment his beautiful bride made her way to the altar in a poignant, but the minute Gabriel caught a glimpse of her, the tears started flowing.
Annabella, 24, was walked up the aisle by her mother Damaris – and just managed to keep it together.
Gabriel told MailOnline: ‘I was trying to be the hard man. I kept saying, I’m not going to cry’. ‘She looked so beautiful’: Gabriel says he wasn’t prepared for the emotions that hit him when he saw his bride. By the time the pair embraced, the whole congregation were in tears – including the bridesmaids.
The groom explained: ‘Seeing her there, I suddenly felt a big appreciation of what I actually have’. Gabriel told MailOnline: ‘ I actually had a bet with my mum that I wouldn’t cry’ He added: ‘She looked so beautiful. We have different characters; she is actually the more emotional one in the relationship, while I was trying to be the hard man. I kept saying, I’m not going to cry.’ But Gabriel insisted that he did manage to hold it together during the reception and speeches, saying: ‘I had a bit of nerves, I was OK.’
Wedding filmmaker, John De Rienzo, who filmed the May 14 wedding, said: ‘This has to be one of the most heartfelt, emotional bridal entrances we have ever filmed. ‘Gabriel and Annabella’s wedding was spectacular from start to finish and we were so pleased to be part of their special day.
