Nigeria’s Shortest Wedding Ever!

Now don’t think the wedding didn’t hold. It did and they spent about sixty seconds in exchanging vows with a total of eight guests in attendance. The event held at a beach in Lagos on a Sunday afternoon some weekends ago where the couple got married without the hype associated with weddings in this part of the World.


As tokens of their love, the couple exchanged totems instead of rings. The bride was gifted with a Gold necklace and in turn gave the groom a pair of socks he originally disliked but would now own as a symbol of his wife’s love.

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) A Unique Nigerian Wedding! Two crazy people fell in love, decided to get married without the usual pomp and pageantry associated wit weddings in Nigeria. The event held at a beach in Lagos on a warm Sunday afternoon and there were only 8 people in attendance myself (the photographer) included. They exchanged their vows (very apt ones if you ask me) and also exchanged totems (not wedding rings). The event was over in minutes and they were ‘husband and wife’… happily married yet their purses didn’t bleed much in the process.
