A Kenyan couple previously got married and spent only $1 or equivalent to £0.80 for their wedding was treated to a renewal of vows during a ceremony held on Valentine’s Day. The funding for the lavish wedding came from well-wishers.
It was only last month when news of their $1 budget wedding got attention on social media and eventually went viral. It was after this that many Kenyans offered to aid the couple.
During their first wedding, Wilson and Ann Mutura were only wearing T-shirts and jeans while their rings are two steels shaped into circle.
According to the media in Kenya, their recent wedding along with the part was estimated to have cost about $35,000. It was held in an upmarket venue located in Nairobi which is the capital city of Kenya.
According to Peter Mwai, a correspondent of BBC in Nairobi, the couple was able to tie the knot officially during the Valentine’s Day celebration and they also exchanged their new rings.
He also added that there some Kenyans who questioned the lavish wedding online as the money could have been given to the couple instead of spending on the party. The money would have helped the couple in their financial situation.
There are those who think that every couple needs to experience their dream wedding.
According to the main organizer of the event who is working for Slique Events Planner Ltd, Aaltonen Jumba, donations have already been given to the couple aside from the wedding party which is all about the importance of romance.
He clarified that there were other people who already pledged to aid the couple financially. A lot of people gave them various things and at different levels based on their financial capacity. They now have a greenhouse farm to work on, a honeymoon they have been dreaming of as well as money so they can begin with their own business.
He added that everything since to have been given to them, the dream wedding was the only thing left which is important because a dream wedding is valuable for married couples.
Mr Jumba stated that it was hard to estimate the total costs of the wedding because money was not used but instead service providers pledge their individual contribution. To have your own dream, book a marquee hire in Sydney to complete the wedding venue.
