Sometimes, what perhaps matters most about a wedding ceremony is the love the couple have for each other and not the feasting and guests around.

A young Nigerian couple has demonstrated great simplicity, showing that weddings do not have to cost an arm and a leg.

In photos that have since gone viral, the married lovers had two people present at their church event.

During the reception that was organised in the backyard of a house, only seven people sat down at a table with the couple as they ate and drank.

Since the photos and video of the event were shared by a tweep with the Twitter handle @Mr_alayi, the platform has been buzzing with different opinions about the ceremony.
