A diehard Arsenal fan from Kosovo has revealed his wife’s reaction when he told her that they would be having a Gunners-themed wedding.
Kaltrim Agushaj married Edisona Agushaj on Saturday in a lavish ceremony, with part of the celebrations centered around Kaltrim’s second biggest love — Arsenal.
The groom’s closest friends and family wore Arsenal shirts and posed for photos before singing chants dedicated to their team.
“It was a spontaneous idea of my friends to make a part of our wedding Arsenal themed,” Kaltrim told Goal.
“It was a little surprise for all of them, but I’m glad because everyone was delighted in the end. I’m Arsenal fan for 17 years, since 2000. Without Arsenal my life hasn’t got any meaning.
“The reaction was a little odd because [my wife] did not expect it. She was surprised because it was a special day for her and for us! It was our wedding day, and this is a surprise present from our Arsenal fan friends that we invited to our wedding. She agreed and was happy in the end.
“We can’t refuse to wear an Arsenal shirt even if it’s at our wedding! Fortunately she’s an Arsenal fan too. If she refused I would’ve spoken to her about it and in the end we would have celebrated in this way.
“Our guests were very surprised with our dance and songs. We sang the song, “We are Arsenal” and shout “we love you Arsenal, yes we do”. We love this team and when we dance and drink we surprised our guests. Most of the time we shout “Arsenal, champion – Arsenal, Arsenal”.”
