We came across this interesting story on weddinginnigeria.com this morning, and we just had to share.
Many Nigerian weddings are really fancy and elaborate, taking months and even years to plan.
Ronke and Lawson broke this norm by having a quick wedding with only eight guests in attendance, and no wedding rings.
…these two crazy people fell in love, decided to get married without the usual pomp and pageantry associated with weddings in Nigeria.
The event held at a beach in Lagos on a warm Sunday afternoon and there were only 8 people in attendance (the photographer) included.
They exchanged their vows (very apt ones if you ask me) and also exchanged totems (not wedding rings).
His totem for her was a Golden Neck piece!
And her token for him was a pair of socks (he disliked them prior to the wedding and he didn’t have any on as the officiant helped her put them on him).
The event was over in minutes and they were ‘husband and wife’.
Now they are happily married yet their purses didn’t bleed much in the process.

Sounds like it was a fun wedding! BellaNaijarians would you have a similar intimate wedding?
