PHOTOS- Mass Wedding: Ghana's Valentine mass wedding

The International Conference Centre was yesterday busy with heavy air of love, affection and happiness as 35 couples solemnised their relationships to spend the rest of their lives together in marriage.
Known to be the only interdenominational mass wedding in the country, the Happy FM Mass Wedding, which started about eight years ago, has seen the solemnisation of not less than 400 couples.
Yesterday’s ceremony attracted more than
1000 people to the venue to lend support to their loved ones who were getting married.
Highlighting the importance of the ceremony, the Managing Director of Global Media Alliance, Mr Ernest Boateng, noted that the event was the biggest demonstration of love.
“Valentine's Day is not only about love, it's about sharing and caring. This is why we are sharing in the day of these beautiful couples and show them and the Ghanaian community at large that we care. We must note that when people find true love, family members also find true joy,” he added.
The General Manager of Happy FM, Mr Emmanuel Akrumah, expressed his appreciation to partners who had helped in sustaining the event since its inception in 2004.
“There were times when we had wondered the possibility of this day coming to fruition; however, that did not deter us from achieving our goal of contributing to a better society through fortifying relationships,” he stated.
Giving a sermon on the theme: “What is a Christian marriage”, Bishop James Saah of the Action Chapel International entreated the couples to exhibit strong Christian values to help in the sustenance of their union.
He said marriage provided couples the opportunity to show mutual support, encouragement, companionship and strength to each other.
The officiating minister, Rev. Dr Arthur Mensah, who blessed the marriage, advised the newly-wed couples to view marriage as a lifelong union of both body and mind, saying, “This love grows and deepens when blessed with children”.
