Wearing just plain shirts and jeans, Jed and April, didn’t expect to get married during their Church visit. They were just supposed to ask for some advice from the priest on what to do since the threat of COVID-19 pandemic was on the rise.
Jed and April are both from New Zealand but it has always been their dream to get married in the Philippines. So, for two year, they planned their wedding arduously, choosing the right suppliers and nailing every detail down. They were set to get married on March 27, but because of the pandemic, they had to cancel all of their plans. Their hearts sank but it also brought them back to what marriage is really about.
If only they were based in the Philippines, it would have been easier to rebook all suppliers. But since they had to fly back to New Zealand, they had to cancel the wedding and think fast on what they wanted to do.
With no family and friends, and even wedding suppliers around to celebrate their special day with them, the couple still considers their wedding a big blessing to be thankful for.
