FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Welcome to GRAND WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

 

weddinggFor many people, the wedding day is considered the jewel in the crown of love. As such a lot of attention is paid on
the day, from flowers, the wedding colours, the cake, the guest list to the photo session; the details of the wedding
day are worked on to ensure the day is as perfect as can be. With so much attention being paid on getting married,
it is no wonder then that most of the couples are taken aback by the effort needed to stay married. Consequently
many of the marriages in current times last for very short periods of time creating a growing belief that ‘marriage
does not work’.
The Grand wedding anniversary is an annual event designed to bring back the due attention to the institution of
marriage. The event brings together couples that have been married for different number of years to share their
experiences and strengthen their union. The climax of the event is the announcing of the couple of the year.
