According to The Citizen, the couple tied the knot on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at a Catholic Church located at Unga Ltd in Arusha, followed by a grand ceremony held in at the Arusha International Conference Center (AICC).
This is the third marriage ceremony for the couple who first got married in Nigeria at the Pentecostal Church and later in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) before the latest one which happened over the weekend in Arusha, Tanzania.
Father Festus Mangwangi, who presided over the marriage, described their union as a hybrid marriage in which one retains his or her religion, but the children born in the wedlock will become members of the Catholic Church.
The Priest said that before the marriage was solemnized, the bride and groom signed a prenuptial agreement and later received the blessings of the Catholic Church.
He says two previous marriages were conducted in two different countries, a civil marriage and a formal marriage of the Pentecostal Church that the bride has been worshiping.
Father Mangwangi said the groom, who is a Catholic, saw the need to follow the Catholic tradition and then came to the country and asked to be remarried after the parties had agreed.
“This marriage is recognized by the Catholic Church as a hybrid marriage where each one remains with their religion but the children will be Catholics,” he said.
It was gathered that hundreds of Arusha residents turned up at the AICC conference hall where a grand party that took place.
The wedding was attended by Prophet TB Joshua’s wife and his relatives from Nigeria alongside the groom’s family.
The groom, Brian is a businessman in the tourism industry whereas Sarah the bride is a lawyer.
