A lovely and historical event was witnessed earlier today as 50 couples tied the knot in a mass wedding ceremony at Immaculate Heart Of Mary, Parish, Umuagwo Ohaji In Ohaji/Egbema LGA of Imo State. The event was said to have attracted a large crowd at the community where the ceremony was held.
After the couples exchanged their marital vows, they offered special thanksgiving to God and signed their marriage registers accordingly.
In an interview, one of the brides, reportedly appreciated God for making the wedding successful, and thanked the priests and members of the Church for giving all couples the opportunity to be joined on the same day.
Earlier, there had been mass wedding ceremonies in other states of the country but none of them involved such an unprecedented number of couples.
