A Kenyan couple became a sensation in the country and online after their wedding cost less than $1.
The ceremony took place on Sunday, January 22 in Nairobi and immediately went viral as many persons both in the country and abroad found it both romantic and impressive.
The ceremony cost so little because Wilson, who works as a fruits vendor could not afford $300 for a better ceremony, and even had to postpone their marriage twice in 2016.
Ann and Wilson had to marry in matching red round-neck shirts, and with cheap wedding rings.
According to BBC Africa, the reception in the country has been so warm that “the couple have received gifts from companies and individuals who were touched by their courage and are [now] expected to go on their honeymoon soon, after a travel agency gave them a five-day break.”
The couple say they are surprised that many people found their story impressive both on Social media and in their country. According to the bride, "I believe money should not stop young people like us from getting married. If people love each other and want to marry they should," Ann said.
Ann and Wilson managed to spend 1$ on just two budget wedding rings, as their church - Community Worship Centre, Nairobi – bore few other responsibilities, including getting them their marriage License.
