A newly married Nigerian couple has been hailed and celebrated on social media for getting married without a wedding reception for their guests. The couple decided to say their vows without the normal Nigerian glitz and glamour wedding parties.
The couple’s story was shared by a Facebook user identified as Ugwu Kelvin. The Facebook user explained that the couple, Augustus and Vivian, said their vows at Denis Catholic Church in Bariga area of Lagos state.
Kelvin noted that the wedding ceremony was different in a cool and sweet way. He said they dressed up beautifully and all they did was the church service.
According to him, the food and souvenir were beautifully packaged together for guests at the wedding. The guests received the souvenir and food after the mass.
The Facebook user had the cutting of the cake at the exit of the church. He said they did not have reception, hall, disc jockey, asoebi, and bridal train.
Kelvin said everyone was already on their way home and to their other businesses, including the couple.
