- A wedding between a firefighter and his bride has gone viral on social media
- After the church service, the couple were sprayed with water from the fire tender
- The groom had no choice but to shield his wife from getting wet and dirtying her white gown
A wedding between a Ghanaian male fire service personnel and his pretty bride has caught the attention of many netizens following a prank that was played on the couple.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the bride and groom were seen coming out of what looked like a church service and were accompanied by some firefighters.
As they stepped out, a fire tender with water in it was set up and they had to go through it - it appeared like it was a tradition for all firefighters who were getting married.
The groom who is the one working with the Ghana National Service, was seen dressed in his full ceremonial uniform.
The bride was wearing a white wedding gown and was made to also partake in the 'flooding' tradition.
In the video, the couple was seen holding hands and wee made to go through the water that was coming with full pressure from the fire tender.
While going through the rushing water, the groom grabbed his bride tightly and lifted her up at a point to prevent her from falling or dirtying her nice wedding gown.
As the exercise was ongoing, some colleagues of the groom were heard cheering him on with others ordering him to do it the right way or risk doing it again.
The video has managed to get onto the internet and is going viral currently.
In another piece of news that has gained national attention, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Ghana Statistical Service has come out with a new report on the minimum salary or wage required for one to be regarded as living above or below the poverty line.
According to the renowned government agency, any Ghanaian who does not earn anything close to GHC792 must be considered as living below the poverty line.
This would mean that anyone who earns a cedi or more over GHC792 can be considered to be living above the poverty line as per projections made by the institution.
