It was jubilation  galore and day like no other to Enoch Chike and his bride,  former Miss Christiana Anyati, as they excitedly marched to altar over the weekend to tie the nuptial knots.

Enoch and Christiana, wearing saintly expressions on their faces, marched in to the temple at St Peter’s Anglican Church, Umuchu, in Aguata Local Government Area, Anambra State, like king and queen, to  the admiration of their families and that of their friends and well-wishers, who graced the matrimonial ceremony.

The ceremony attracted members of the Evangelical Fellowship in Anglican Common (EFAC) in Aguata and Niger West Dioceses, as well as clergy of the Anglican Communion and Pentecostal churches whom include Pastor Martin Onyebor of Mountain of Fire, Nnewi; the Parish Priest in charge of St Thomas’ Church, Igbakwu, Revd Canon Peter Okwuobodo; and his St Peter’s Church, Umuchu counterpart, Revd Conan IkechukwuOkonisah, who presided over the ceremony.

While delivering a sermon entitled “Jesus the important personality”, the Revd Canon Okonisah did not mince words in his admonition to couples for a successful marriage.

The Anglican cleric said, “whenever an important occasion like this comes up, we fix our eyes on the people of high class, people of high personality and value for invitation to be our dignitaries.

“Let me introduce to you people, particularly you, Enoch and Christiana, Jesus Christ. He is the only important personality needed for an important journey of marriage institution, and any other human endeavour, for you to succeed.

“Satan always fights this institution from day one when God created it.

“Therefore, couples, invite Jesus in your marriage to fight for you, for you can’t do without Him, believe it or not. His presence defies every trouble, and all the strategies satan uses to fight marriage. That’s why we always ask couples to begin with Him (Jesus), and engage Him without stopping, so that they can succeed and have a happy home as God made it”, he said.

Also, during a reception, an Aguata-based Evangelist, Wisdom Eze, engaged the celebrants and their guests in a biblical exposition for a marital bliss, identifying holiness and fear of God as the only viable key to successful marriage.

However, Evangelist Eze emphatically noted that material and nonmaterial things as beauty, and wealth do not guarantee happy marriage, but holiness of God, urging spouses to draw each other more closer to Him.

In a vote of thanks, the groom expressed joy and gratitude to God for giving him his beautiful bride; and to the guests, for honouringtheir  bride’s invitation, praying God to reward them even as He grant them journey mercies back to their homes.

Symbolic cutting of wedding cake, presentation of gifts, among others were the highlights of the event.
