VIRAL: Homeless Filipino couple who can't afford wedding gifted one
·3 min read
For a Filipino couple who live with their six children in a shack in a vacant lot in Pampanga, getting married is all but a far-fetched idea – until they met a kindhearted salon owner who is now helping them make their dream wedding into a reality.
Rommel Basco and Rosalyn Ferrer wanted to get married since they met 24 years ago. But they are unable to tie the knot because they can't afford one.
Life is tough for Rommel and Rosalyn on the streets of Pampanga. The couple collects scraps and sells them to put food on the table for their family of eight.
One day while collecting plastic, Rommel and Rosalyn met hair salon owner Richard Strandz, who, upon hearing and being moved by the couple's love story, is now helping them get married later this year.
Richard arranged a Valentine's bridal photoshoot with his friends where the photos would go viral on social media. You can see the viral images from Rab4Love Studioshere.
