A Kenyan couple have won lot of admirers on social media after it emerged that they just got married after they dated for several months via text messages.
So what’s special about this? Well, this couple are actually deaf. Yes both the groom and bride are deaf and since they cannot use oral words to express themselves, they resorted to SMS to convey their undying love for each other.
Their wedding, which took place last weekend, was officiated by deaf pastor. According to report, William Mwaura, 29, and Phyllis Wawira 28, got married at Kang’eng’u ACK church in Kandara Constituency.
Another interesting aspect of this union is that the wedding also featured a deaf priest, deaf couple and deaf bridesmaids.
The bride and bridegroom’s parents and villagers were able to follow the proceedings of the wedding through an interpreter.
The interpreter, identified as Immanuel Muigai, said the couple, William Mwaura and Phyllis Wawira, met in 2016 during a church function. Both of them are members of Deaf Mission Fellowship Church, a church Mr Muigai also belongs to.
Love is indeed a beautiful thing.
