LIME to live stream Hope Gardens mass wedding
TELECOMS company LIME is to live stream a private mass wedding involving 14 couples at Hope Gardens today.
The event, titled '14-14-14' and hosted by MSW Events, will be broadcast on LIME's Facebook page, Facebook.com/LIMEJamaica, beginning at 4:00 pm.
"Among those expected to 'tie-the-knot' are two older couples who have been married for 21 and 45 years, respectively, and will be renewing their vows," LIME said in a press release yesterday.
The couples were invited to submit videos/essays in which they shared the reason they should be selected to have their dream wedding made into a reality by MSW Events.
According to Monique Walcott, managing director of MSW Events and conceptualiser of the 'fairy tale' wedding event, several of the island's most renowned wedding service providers collaborated to make the event possible. She explained that each of the couples had previously planned registry weddings or were just simply unable to find enough funding for a wedding before they were selected to participate in the unique event.
"Nothing like this has ever been done in Jamaica," Walcott said.
Stephen Miller, LIME's sponsorship manager, described the event as "a special opportunity for us to infuse the technology we provide while making this important day for the 14 couples selected even more memorable".
Due to space and resource constraints, each couple is permitted to have only four guests present at the event to witness their nuptials.
Miller said that through the live stream, the couples will have the opportunity to share their special day with other loved ones via the Internet.
