It was a mass wedding with a difference in Uganda as 200 brides were joined in Holy Matrimony with their respective grooms.

The Daily Monitor reported the unusual practice of brides not being driven in posh vehicles to the church, but in a truck.

It took place at the gardens of Miracle Centre Cathedral in Rubaga located a kilometer away from the church premises.

All couples were allowed to come along with a best man, matron and two relatives. There was an anniversary cake for each couple.

Brides in their gowns were sent to the venue seated behind five decorated flatbed Mercedes Benz trailers.

The trailers were escorted by police, while the brides were guarded by armed counter terrorism police.

Leaders of the church, Pastor Kayanja and his wife, believe the event is the largest mass wedding citing that the Biblical wedding in Canaan had only 141 couples.
