The wedding was witnessed by just five guests, two from both families and the fifth person was the officiating minister. Another person present was the photographer.
Sharing photos from the wedding on his Instagram page, Anthony wrote: “Unfortunately we couldn’t have a “traditional” wedding but I thank God for the journey and wouldn’t have had it any other way.

"The woman who taught me how to love told me to do things the right way. She told me to go to counseling before the engagement, get married, then buy a house and lastly have children."
