Nigerian couple hold simple wedding on a weekday with only 7 guests

A Nigerian couple is currently trending on social media after they opted for a very simple wedding instead of the usual lavish one.


Mr James and Mrs Blessing decided to tie the knots on a weekday and only had 7 guest as witnesses. The lovely bride was dressed in a simple 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.
