The groom, Michael Gitari, went viral on social media three years ago for getting down on bended knee to the surprise of his long-term girlfriend, Nailantei Laida, who accepted the proposal.

Ever the bridesmaid and never the bride, Naila, who is a worship singer, model and entrepreneur, finally had her day after attending numerous of her friends’ weddings.
