Here is the grand Kenyan wedding which has gotten everyone talking

A city couple has managed to make their wedding day an occasion that guests will remember for a long time to come for its simplicity and uniqueness.

Pictures shared by Human Rights activist Boniface Mwangi capture the groom, dressed in a white African suit pulling a mkokoteni (handcart) with his beaming bride seated on top.

The bride is all smiles, same as the groom who is ferrying her along the streets of Nairobi to their wedding venue at Pawa 254.

While bride and groom chose an unconventional mode of transport, the wedding nonetheless was presided over by former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga.

My friends @helloayoo and @soko10 got married over the weekend. A beautiful wedding @Pawa254. CJ @wmutunga presided over the wedding. Pastor @frankondere gave a lovely sermonette. Wishing them a lifetime full of love, laughs, art and the best of times! pic.twitter.com/EX3gvLsN3I

Kenyans on Twitter congratulated the newly-wed couple on their nuptials but also had something to say about the mkokoteni stunt that they pulled.

“Hii ndio inaitagwa kupelekwa na rieng!!!?” asked @empresssam1.

“When a rich man pelekas bibi na mkokoteni the society smiles and wants the rest to imitate… but when a poor man pelekas bibi na mkokoteni the society mourns and calls for mchango,” said @robertjosochi.

“This is the real meaning of for better for worse… and it shows ones commitment to carry his responsibilities,” wrote @Ddwaynestone1.

“Oyaaa…Respect to the couple Happiness is key,” commented @Bikospeaks.

“Amebeba mzigo wake,” said @nzuguamicheal.

“For a moment I mistook the chariot for a mkokoteni,” tweeted @lyndachalker.

In May this year another couple became the talk of town after details of their Sh23,500 wedding.

Mr and Mrs Odak further break down their budget saying that theirs was going to be a civil wedding at the registrar’s office.
