So last week, a Nigerian couple, Mr James and Mrs Blessing got married with only 7 guests in attendance.
The bride was dressed in a purple gown, not the traditional wedding dress, for her wedding.
They were joined in holy matrimony in a Catholic Church and that was the end.
There was no reception or any further ceremony.
The couple looked comfortable enough so it was clear they didn’t have a simple wedding because of lack of funds. A witness, who was in church praying when they came in for their wedding, was impressed by this and he shared their story on social media.
