Regardless of their low financial status, about 200 brides who rode in a trailer to their mass wedding had a fun filled day.
The mass wedding took place at Miracle Centre Cathedral in Rubaga, Uganda was on Thursday. And the church was filled with love as the couples are of different ages waited for the church to wed them in Holy Matrimony, in a wedding themed 77 Days of Glory (77 DOGs).
Unlike regular weddings, where couples decorate saloon cars to transport them from their houses to church and later the wedding reception venue, the church organized five flat-bed Mercedes Benz trailers which were decorated to transport the brides from the Church premises to the Church gardens, a distance of about one kilometer led by a Police escort car, where the wedding reception took place.
As the trailers began delivering the brides to the wedding venue, the love in the air overwhelmed everyone on site including the music team, who started playing love ballad, when they had hitherto had been playing church music.
The 200 couples, who were each allowed to come with a best man, matron and two relatives, all had cakes on their tables to cut at the end of the day.
