Everyone celebrated love in its purest form when Wilson Mutura and Ann Muhonja used only Ksh100 to celebrate their love for each other in 2017.

With Ksh 100, Wilson paid for their wedding bands and went to his pastor at the Community Christian Worship Centre in Kasaran asking him to officiate their union.

When the pastor posted this beautiful story on his Facebook page, the story went viral.

Anyone who is anyone in the wedding fraternity chipped in and threw them a posh wedding that cost a cool Ksh 3.8m.

Now, after all that hullabaloo, the couple is still together and going strong 5 years later.

Speaking in an interview with Switch TV, Wilson and Ann detailed their journey in marriage together.

Once the honeymoon phase was over, Ann says that they had some issues and the worst advice she was given was to leave Wilson for a year, for things to cool down.

Ann said, "If you lay a strong foundation in marriage, nothing can break it no matter what."

Supporting his wife's sage observation, Wilson added, "As a married man, there are so many challenges, and one way to overcome that is to have a close relationship with your wife."

The foundation of their relationship was forged in the church where they met.

"We met at our church's youth conference and I noticed you were the best dressed of everyone else in the group. I made the first move and asked for his number. and that is how we started talking," Ann narrated their first encounter.

Wilson on his part claims that he feigned ignorance and acted like he doesn't notice Ann's efforts even after she bro-zoned him.

"She used to call me bro and after four years, we decided to take it to the next level," Wilson said smiling.

The next level meant a wedding to solemnised their union. The only issue was, they were broke and financially strapped.

"Because I loved him, I told him we can go to our pastor and he can pray for us in church. After that we can start life with just a simple wedding," Ann explained.

And you all know the rest is history.

After their love story went viral, many corporates promised them perks that many did not deliver.

Wilson called them out saying they used them to publicise their products.

"There are people who used us and our situation. Some said they will give us a piece of land to build a house, and to date, nothing had been forthcoming."

The father of one continued, "The likes of Bonfire Adventures held their end of the bargain and they gave me a job - something that was not even in their plan or part of their pledge to us - where I get a steady income. The rest just wanted to use us."
