A man and his wife are trending on social media after tying the knot without reception in Lagos.
Augustus and Vivian hold wedding without reception in Lagos.
A newly-wed couple, Augustus and Vivian have become internet sensations after holding their church wedding over the weekend without reception.
The simple couple tied the knot at St. Dennis Catholic Church in Bariga on Saturday, February 8.
After exchanging their vows in the church, the couple shared a souvenir to everyone after Mass and they cut their cake at the exit door of the church and everyone took a piece and went home.
The ceremony ended before 1pm.
A priest, Ugwu Kelvin, shared their photos on Facebook, writing:
“Today’s wedding between Augustus and Vivian in St Denis Catholic Church Bariga was particularly different in a very cool and sweet way. The bride and groom were beautifully dressed. A friend of mine Edith Kush did the make up for the bride. The wedding was done with the bride and the groom exchanging their vows to each other lovingly. That was the highpoint of the whole thing.
“The food and souvenir were beautifully packaged together and were distributed to all that came just immediately after the mass. They had the cutting of the cake just at the exit door of the church. No reception. No hall. No Mc. No DJ. No event planner. No aseobi. No bridal train. Just the essential. Before 1pm everyone was already on their way home and to their other businesses, including the couple. On Sunday they will come for thanksgiving after having consummated the marriage without stress.”
