A couple has tied the knot wearing slippers and casual wear in what is an Igbo traditional wedding.
It is not clear whether it is a decision of choice or condition, but it was crystal clear that theirs was extremely low-budget and simple.
In a short video from the occasion shared by @saintavenue_ent1 on Instagram, the bride is seen carrying out the palm wine ritual that involves her searching and giving the drink to her man.
She eventually located him after teasing some guests and knelt before the casually-dressed husband-to-be to offer him the palm wine.
