MASS WEDDING + Give-away

I had almost boycotted the wedding.
I was informed 3days to the date.
Bride and I see eachother almost everyday, but she kept the news to her self.
Even when I was telling her a mutual friend had invited me to his son's first year birthday and I should invite her if she was available she still did not open her mouth to give me the news.
My aunt informed me the next day and my attendance was expected.
I was angry and decided to show face only so as not to have family drama and stories of jealousy spring up.

I was given 3days notice and I was angry
Her Stepmother was given a day's notice, the woman did not bother showing up
Her half brother was called by her father that day, He showed up because he had nothing important to do.

Besto got married in a registry, which was in everyway like every normal church/trad wedding
Was shocked at the manner of wedding that took place at the Ikeja Registry.

For the 1st time in my life I witnessed a mass wedding.
When the five couples were told to all enter the hall, we wondered
One of the reason they had elected to use the Ikeja Registry is because someone told them the Ikeja and Ikoyi registry are the only Embassies recognized marriage courts in Lagos...how tue that is I do not know.
So I guessed the idea of a mass wedding is because, too many people want to get married in said registry.
There were about five batch of five couples.
The whole wedding ceremony lasted about 30mins.
If I ever have to do a court marriage abi is it wedding, the Ikeja Registry is so ruled out
That place is suitable for couple who do no have the support of their families and just want to tie the knot at all means
