A Nigerian couple, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Udu, celebrated their union with a simple wedding ceremony, sticking to a budget of just N50k.

The couple, now known as Mr. and Mrs. Udu Lucky Obukohwo, exchanged vows on Saturday, March 16, 2024.

The inspiration for their minimalist approach to wedding planning stemmed from the advocacy of Ossai Ovie Success, a proponent of the ‘N50k marriage’ movement.
