Jobel Delos Angeles refused to let the weather destroy her wedding plans as she made her way down a flooded church aisle in the Philippines to marry her groom.


Delos Angeles, 24, tied the knot with the father of her two children recently as Tropical Storm Yagi and the southwest monsoon caused massive flooding to the capital Manila and nearby areas, including their home province of Bulacan.

In a video posted to Facebook, Delos Angeles can be seen smiling as she walks through the floodwaters before her groom takes her to the altar.

After the wedding, Delos Angeles told AFP: "Even if it floods or it rains, nothing can stop me. You only get married once, will you postpone it? I was marrying the man I love."

“My gown got wet and heavy, but I told myself it was as if I was walking on a red carpet.”

The couple never thought of calling off the ceremony as the day was a double celebration. In addition to exchanging vows, they also baptized their five-month-old daughter.

"We didn't want a new schedule as we were already stressed out. Our hometown is really flood-prone," Delos Angeles explained.


She added: "No car wanted to bring us to the church, so I just rode a boat. We didn't expect so many people would still turn up, even the entourage."

Teresa Bautista, the bride's aunt who uploaded the video, told AFP that she felt terrible for the couple but at the same time, she's glad they got it through.

According to Delos Angeles, she had no regrets. "It is truly memorable. I am so happy. It shows the lesson that there are no what ifs," she said.

The clip of the couple’s unwavering dedication has been viewed more than 274,000 times and has drawn comments from netizens addressing the event as the "wedding of the year."
