In other news, the wedding photos of a beautiful man and his bride have gone viral as they appear to have had the simplest marriage ceremony with no guests sighted in the pictures.

Many wondered if Ghanaian ladies would agree to have such simple weddings, looking at how inexpensive it all looked.

The only two people who were captured in the photos apart from the bride and the groom was the officiating minister, as well as a woman who is thought to be the mother of one spouse.
