Weddings are a big deal in Nigeria. Typical Nigerian weddings, irrespective of a couple’s financial status, are worth celebrating in grand style. It is not really surprising that Nigerian wedding planners and vendors are making a killing.
Over the weekend, in Lagos, newlyweds, Augustus and Vivian, did the unthinkable. They opted for a minimalist wedding that has got Nigerians talking on social media.
The couple, whose names were simply given as Augustus and Vivian, wedded at St. Dennis Catholic Church in Bariga on Saturday.
Kevin Ugwu, the priest who officiated their wedding, shared their unique wedding story on Facebook.
According to him, not only did the couple choose not to have a wedding reception, they also ensured that the entire ceremony was as brief as possible.
