Valentine’s Day February 14, 2018 saw the dreams of 10 couples come to fruition as they were joined in Holy Matrimony at the Happy FM Dream Wedding in Accra.
The all expense paid plush ceremony, which has over time, evolved from the popular Happy FM Valentine Mass Wedding event, brought together many family and friends in witnessing the memorable occasion.
It also saw couples who have already been married, renew their vows in Holy Matrimony.
The loved filled ceremony was officiated by some well-known pastors including Rev. King Foli from the Royal House Chapel International.
Chief Executive of Global Media Alliance Group (GMA), Ernest Boateng, speaking at the ceremony said Happy FM’s Dream Wedding was a fulfillment of a social responsibility that the station has taken upon itself to carry out each year on Valentine’s Day.
“Happy 98.9FM has been honoring this social responsibility over the past 12 years. Every year on February 14, the Happy FM family brings together various couples in holy matrimony at an all-expense paid event. Over 300 couples have over the years benefitted from this great initiative championed by Happy FM, with support from our generous partners and sponsors,” Boateng said.
He said the main objective of the initiative is to provide couples the opportunity to have a grand wedding in the company of family and friends without the component of financial strains lurking during such an important step of their lives.
“At Happy FM, we are committed to helping couples desirous of getting married by taking on the responsibility of organizing a classy wedding event at no cost to the couples and providing all the necessary resources including their outfits, refreshment and honeymoon packages among others,” he stated.
Boateng said over the years, the initiative has introduced additional services including extended counselling sessions for couples, as well as fun activities to ensure they enjoy their time together.
He added that the prestigious event is meant to leave a lasting memory in the minds of the couples, as well as their families and friends who witnessed this special occasion.
Newly wedded Mr and Mrs Nutakor, Mr and Mrs Ologo and Mr and Mrs Acquah were adjudged the best three couples and for their reward, they will receive a special honeymoon treat at East Gate Hotel at East Legon, Accra.
The rest of the couples will also enjoy their honeymoon at Erata Hotel in East Legon, Accra.
Ohemaa Mercy, Nana Ama Safowaa, Abena Serwah Ophelia, Pastor Kofy and Nosisa Doe, among others, treated the couples, friends and families with some good musical performances.
All the 10 couples received hampers from Nkulenu Industries Limited and GIHOC Distilleries among other sponsors.
