” From the groom, Karl: I’m just a very blessed man, I can’t really call it luck because luck can’t create this…
This woman would follow me to my cleaning job, almost every Monday and Thursday evening some years back. Even as I carried the black bags to the waste storage and scrubbed the toilets, she would still look at me like I was the man! – I told her I was born to be an influential man on a world stage and she stuck by me until it began to manifest. We had to delay the big day last year, but delay does not mean denial.The joy, miracle and spectacle that was yesterday was right on time. Love’s time, God’s time”.
“From the bride, Cassandra: My mum was diagnosed with cancer last year, she told me about her lump on mother’s day and within two months she was gone. Karl prayed and fasted with me daily. After she passed it was so hard for the both of us but God saw us through. Karl even got a tree planted on Neckar’s Island (Richard Brandon’s island) as my mum had always wanted to do that”.
The couple exchanged vows on Saturday July, 16th 2016 at The Gibson Hall, Bishopsgate, London in front of their close family and friends with a inspirational moment of their day dedicated to the #BlackLivesMatter movement – so touching!
Cassandra and Karl met through an interest she had in him for a show that she was trying to create about ex-gang members. That was the first time they met and would only see each other for filming purposes, as they did not have any feelings or relations at that point.
