More than 200 brides in Uganda, rode in five decorated flat-bed Mercedes Benz trailers to the venue of their wedding with their respective grooms, last week.
It was reported that the Miracle Centre Cathedral, the church that organized the mass wedding, thought that it would be reasonable to transport the brides en masse, since it was a mass wedding.
The trucks drove majestically to the wedding venue at the church’s garden, a kilometre away from the church’s cathedral, escorted by heavily-armed counter-terrorism policemen, with the brides smiling and waving infectiously at passersby.
The theme of the ceremony was 77 Days or Glory, or 77 DOGS.
Each couple was allowed to bring along a best man, matron and two relatives. Anniversary cake was also available for each couple.
According to the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Robert Kayanja, the event is the largest mass wedding, noting that the Biblical wedding in Canaan had only 141 couples.
