"So, when I came for the first time in 2013, I witnessed a wedding here and I just thought it was so rich and so special and it's something that I have never seen anywhere else in the world, even on videos or TV I had never seen this. So, that's why I wanted to do it this way because I know it was important for him and for his family and for me as well."
