A Facebook user took to the social media platform to share photos and details of a wedding which he attended in Bariga area of Lagos.

The user, Ugwu Kelvin, disclosed that the newlyweds decided against the usually lavish reception ceremony which many have to celebrate their new union.

Instead, they arranged for the souvenirs to be handed to everyone who was at the church wedding after they exchanged marital vows and the clergyman declared them man and wife.

Ugwu wrote: "Today's wedding between Augustus and Vivian in St Denis Catholic Church Bariga was particularly different in a very cool and sweet way. The bride and groom were beautifully dressed. A friend of mine Edith Kush did the makeup for the bride.

"The wedding was done with the bride and the groom exchanging their vows to each other lovingly. That was the highpoint of the whole thing.

"The food and souvenir were beautifully packaged together and were distributed to all that came just immediately after the mass. They had the cutting of the cake just at the exit door of the church.

"No reception. No hall. No Mc. No DJ. No event planner. No aseobi. No bridal train. Just the essential. Before 1 pm everyone was already on their way home and to their other businesses, including the couple. On Sunday they will come for thanksgiving after having consummated the marriage without stress."

Guys, what do you think about this kind of wedding?
