The Nakuru Metro Church congregation was puzzled during a wedding ceremony on Sunday after the presiding pastor locked the couple in handcuffs.

Bishop Mike Brawan said the rather unusual exercise was meant to symbolically communicate the importance of marriage and that it should be respected by either party.

“It is only the two who will be chained together. May any third party be condemned,” he said.

Mr Brawan said that officiating the ceremony was an interesting experience since he had never presided over an ‘economical’ wedding.

The man of God preferred to use handcuffs over wedding rings in uniting Dennis Kariuki and Cecilia Wanjira.

He, however, did not disclose where he got the handcuffs from.

Nominated Senator Beatrice Elachi applauded Pastor Brawan’s model saying it was unique.

“We want to thank him for bringing in the new model so that people can live together as husbands and wives without going through a very rigorous expensive wedding; just to please, not yourself but other people,” she said.

It was only after Kariuki and Wanjira signed the marriage certificate that they were allowed out of the cuffs.
