A man and his wife-to-be have gotten married inside a church which was flooded with water as family and friends watch on.
A monsoon has hit the Philippines bringing with it heavy rains and forceful winds enhanced by nearby tropical storm ‘Yagi.’
Roxas Boulevard, a popular local leisure area stretching along Manila Bay in the capital, was close to empty over the weekend as big waves hit the seafront walk, which was partly covered in rubbish.
But despite the freak weather, one couple decided they weren’t going to let the rain stop them from having their special day on Saturday.
The couple, from Bulacomean, were filmed going through with their wedding ceremony, despite their church being flooded. Footage shows the bride and her parents wade down the flooded aisle through murky water up to the groom who was waiting by the altar barefoot.
Flash floods have been reported from many areas in the Philippines – mainly in Central Luzon region which includes the hard-hit Bulacan province – forcing thousands of people to evacuate their homes.
The Philippines endures an average of 20 typhoons and storms each year.
