"This marriage is void abinitio, marriage should be celebrated in a licensed place of worship or at the registrar's office. Celebrating marriage in such an unknown place is not reorganised."
Esther Efenna said:
"I guess the wedding date was already fixed before the guy fell ill and they were not willing to extend the date. (Nice move). Love is a beautiful thing so don't get it twisted. Congratulations God bless your home."

Elderly couple together for 40 years weds in hospital
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that an elderly couple who have been together for 40 years had tied the knot in a hospital after it was learnt that the groom has cancer.
Keith Turner, 86, and 83-year-old Rita Trickett were assisted by the hospital staff in organising a small wedding after learning that the man had terminal cancer.
According to Daily Mirror, Keith's condition got worse, and he was admitted to hospital a week before the nuptials. The nurses helped get a cake for the event and found a pinhole flower for Keith and a lovely bouquet for Rita.
The ceremony took place in a ward, with some of the staff joining the couple to celebrate their big day.
