Lavish party for 80p wedding pair

LAVISH: Wilson and Ann Mutura

A KENYAN couple who spent $1 (80p) on their wedding have renewed their vows in a lavish $35,000 ceremony.

Wilson and Ann Mutura wore jeans and T-shirts and two steel circles served as rings. Then news of their budget wedding went viral on social media and many Kenyans offered to fund their party.

The groom only spent $1 on two budget wedding rings, which he produced amid cheering during the exchange of vows.

Other expenses surrounding the pair's nuptials - including the licence fee - were instead borne by their church.
Online commentators have praised their move, pointing out that weddings are becoming increasingly expensive.
