Its been a week plus after the cancellation of the grand wedding of Paul Waithaka and Joyce Waithera from Nakuru County leaving them disappointed.
Paul has finally spoken about the ordeal stating that they are learning to pick up the pieces after what was meant to be the best day of their life turned out to be their worst.
“We kept asking, why us and why God was letting this happen, but now we have managed to pick the pieces and we are now very sober as God has really been good to us.
We are not intending to sue anyone, some things are better left to God. The best justice comes from God,” Mr Waithaka said.

The couple met in February 2017 in Nakuru town, an encounter that Mr Waithaka terms as a divine connection.
“I had been praying for a promotion at work and for a wife and so I first saw Joyce at the roundabout and moments later we met at the matatu stage and after we started talking. I realised God had led us to each other.
She had been coming to Mizpah once or twice every month so the members knew her and my parents loved her from the first day. I’m confident this relationship was ordained by God and that we shall overcome these challenges,” Mr Waithaka said.
He teaches Biology and Agriculture at Jomo Kenyatta Girls’ High School in Bahati.
He had invited some of his students and had even planned to take some cake to his Form Four candidates.

The couple has endeavoured to pay all debts accrued at the abortive wedding.
“We had to pay every supplier to the last coin as we never wanted to hear any complaints of how we have been unable to pay suppliers.
We had our own savings and the money we were given by friends during the Nairobi and Njoro pre-weddings, so after paying all service providers we were left with nothing. The cake I had set aside for the candidates has since expired,” he added.
Both sets of parents have been supportive, with extended family members urging them to plan for another wedding.
