"Who knew my daughter Grace would find a husband and have such a beautiful wedding? God has indeed blessed her today," the bride's dad said.

The groom's parents were also delighted to witness their son finally finding a life partner.

"He was not born deaf. He developed a hearing impairment when he was seven years old. I am really happy that he has found himself a wife. He will be happy," his mother said.

The couple, now set to spend the rest of their lives together, met in Nakuru while hustling.

"We should get many people to learn the sign language especially in the church as this will make those with hearing impairment feel included," a nun from the church said.
