One couple from Kenya took their love of footballing giants Manchester United to a new level by having the team be their wedding theme, even taking in a game at the same time.
The happy couple’s unique day was first reported by Africa Gossip News, but the story was picked up over in the UK as well.
Whilst the groom wore a Manchester United replica top at the ceremony, his blushing bride went for the classic white gown, which perhaps showed that while themes may change, the established nuptial attire is always an attractive option for couples today. She did, however, make a concession by having a red flower tied into her hair.
The theme did not stop at the wedding party’s clothes, as the couple’s mode of transport was a silver Mercedes draped in a Manchester United flag.
For those interested in seeing the snaps of the happy day, they can check out the Daily Mail website. Such a meticulously planned event will surely have included the hiring of a top wedding photographer from Manchester or the surrounding area.
Whilst having such a ceremony may not appeal to all, it does reflect a growing trend within the wedding industry. Today, many people feel comfortable in deviating from the traditional style for wedding occasions and hosting a day that more fits their own sense of fashion or interests.
It is not known where the couple went for their honeymoon, although a Manchester United fixture was probably not off the table.
