SEE LOVE: Couple who escaped death just 4 days to wedding got married inside hospital

Don't be scared, the woman is not dead. Marriage is not something to take with levity. #GoFigure
Just four days to their wedding, 31yrs old Miriam Gakenia and her fiance 27yrs old James Mwangi had gone to buy wedding items but were involved in a terrible road accident on Tuesday, December 15. 
Their wedding was billed to take place at Dominion Towers Deliverance Church on Saturday December 19, but it wasn't possible for them to go to church to say "I Do".

Miriam and James proved that love is strong by exchanging their vows in the hospital...
She suffered a right hip joint injury and a broken right arm while his right hand was injured. He had been treated and discharged but she could neither sit nor stand.
"The wedding had to go on. We had prepared for six months. The devil was not going to get in the way. She would have become my wife even if she had lost her legs," James explained.

The unfortunate accident happened at Kiangwachi area along Nyeri/Nairobi highway.

Speaking from her hospital bed, Miriam said: "I informed my doctor of the wedding and told him we were not ready to postpone it."

She said the hospital agreed to hold the wedding on its grounds. Nurses and matron Jane Wamucii escorted her to the location on her bed.

Gakenia and Mwangi had difficulties putting on their wedding rings as their hands were in casts but they exchanged their vows in what Reverend Stephen Mungai described as "a first in Nyeri".

It was also difficult for them to sign their marriage certificate and to share their wedding cake, but these paled in comparison to the exchange of vows at the emotional ceremony.

"I have never conducted such a wedding. It shows how far love can go. It is a lesson in sticking with your vision regardless of hurdles, and eventually reaching your destination," the Reverend said.

Miriam, a system administrator at Dedan Kimathi University of Technology, will remain at the hospital for at least six weeks.
