KENYAN COUPLE HAILED ONLINE FOR 1 DOLLAR WEDDING

A Kenyan couple unable to afford expenses of a wedding have earned plaudits on social media for pursuing a budget option of 1 dollar ceremony which they attended wearing casual clothes.
Wilson and Ann Mutura postponed their wedding twice in 2016 because they were unable to raise the 300 dollars (about 3000 Kwacha) fee.
They decided to get married this year with the minimum of expense
The BBC reports that the groom only spent 1 dollar (about K10) on two budget wedding rings, which he produced amid cheering during the exchange of vows.
Other expenses surrounding the pair’s nuptials-including the licence fee were instead borne by the church.
Online commenters have praised their move, pointing out that weddings are becoming increasingly expensive.
The romantic story of Wilson, 27 and his bride Ann 24, seems to have captured the attention of many Kenyans.
