A wedding video has gone viral after the world's most emotional groom broke down in tears when he first caught glimpse of his simply stunning wife-to-be as she entered the church.
The walk down the aisle featured beautiful Annabelle in a glorious off-the-shoulder gown, accompanied by her mother and cooed over by a packed-out St Martin In The Fields - the London church whose divine decor alone is enough to give any couple wedding envy.
But it wasn't the dress, the frescoed ceilings or the captivating gospel music which sent the Internet into meltdown. Rather, it was the fact that Gabriel Deku, 25, went into emotional overdrive when confronted with the sight of his other half.
The best man rose to the occasion beautifully, ordering the groom to man up and get a grip: "You look at her, brother. Stand up and look at her," he demanded repeatedly.
In a post-honeymoon interview with radio station Premier Gospel
, the newlyweds admit that the outpouring of emotion was a shock to them both. "Everything just hit me at once, how fortunate I was, when I saw Annabelle walking down the aisle," says Gabriel, who went on to say that past relationships had led to him "giving up on love". "Now it was about my bride, who loves me unconditionally, regardless of how I am, how I look like and on my good days and bad days. [When I saw her walk in] it resonated with me and ripped me to shreds."
To be confronted with her man in tears was a surprise to Annabelle too: "I just couldn't believe it. I'm the emotional one in the relationship. I'm the crier. I've been crying since we got engaged, just overwhelmed with the fact that we found each other, " she said. "[But] he hasn't cried since we got together. It was beautiful to see."
