420 weddings at Easter Service

The International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC) held its mass wedding celebrations on Sunday. The ceremony boasted a total of 420 marriages. Brides and grooms come together at one venue, at the same time, in front of the same congregation and exchange their vows. Veli Nhlapo captured the moment.

  5. Hayi cha ngeke!!! Noma sekuthiwa i-religion…did I miss this part in the bible – where does it say u must have “mass” weddings? A bride should stand out on their wedding day and shouldn’t have to compete for attention with other brides.

  60. Wow, nothing touches me more than weddings. These r not just weddings, they r holy matrimonies. Whether they look good or bad, they will be abundantly blessed in their marriages becoz they have done the right thing in front of their God. And again, I love the fact that they promote polygamy, after all its better knowing that ur husband is with the second or third wife than not knowing where he is @ all. It takes a speacial woman to accept polygamy. May God bless these beautiful couples in their union.

  69. King Solomon had +800 wives and God (the God of Abrahan, Isaac, Jacob – All polygamists) Blessed him with Wealth and Honour (Dignity). Chirst, son of God, is a descendent from a polygamus family. Modimo wa sethepu! My own dad (94), on his deathbed, was nursed WITH LOVE by my aunts (his two OTHER WIVES – NOT NYATSIS)!!! The three families live HAPPILY WITH LOVE, ALL OF US (Children) have Senior Degrees.four are doctors. U think all the ppl but u, r fools! Do introspection!
