A couple were forced to chop down their wedding guest list from a whopping 2 500 guests to a sprinkle of 15. The newlyweds wanted to enter into nuptial bliss while still complying with Covid-19 regulations in their country.
Kenyan couple Justus and Grace Ngari had tough decisions to make as they cut down their massive wedding to a tiny affair. The groom, who resides in Durban, says that they had planned an extravagant event. Speaking to Drum, Justus said:
"The bridal team would have comprised of eight guys and eight ladies, but we reduced them to have only the best man and maid of honour."
The wedding took place early this month but was originally planned for April. The pair had to weigh their options amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Kenyan government offices were closed in April and they could only get permission to proceed in May. The couple got creative and decided to stream the event for the 2 000-plus who didn't make the cut.
The couple decided to get married during the pandemic because the lockdown brought about by it was unpredictable. They stayed true to the 'new normal' of wearing face masks and social distancing.
“We have saved a lot since we reduced the numbers."
Gatherings in Kenya are prohibited by the government as part of lockdown regulations, just as in Mzansi. Schools and places of worship are closed. It is also compulsory to wear masks in public spaces.
