A couple might have to re-think their wedding plans after a fire destroyed their home in Seaview Farm.

Nadira Singh said she and her fiance Leendert Woodruff lost everything in the blaze on Wednesday afternoon.

“We were just making preparations for our wedding, which was supposed to be on the 27th of this month. We had all our wedding stuff, clothes, whatever, and we trying to get the house in order, you know, in terms of, you know, presentation and stuff like that and unfortunately, everything went,” Singh told state media.

The couple’s 15-year-old daughter, who was reportedly alone at the house when the fire started, escaped without injuries.

“It’s not easy, anybody know, it’s not easy to lose everything and you don’t know what comes next, but I have faith in God and I know that whatever it is, he will see me through,” Singh added.
