Ikoyi marriage registry reopens for weddings


After being closed for about five months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ikoyi Marriage Registry in Lagos has reopened for conduct of weddings.

A source who visited the marriage registry on Tuesday, sighted people in wedding suits and gowns.

The Marriage Registrar, Mr Adeyemi Adebayo, said the backlog of weddings through the lockdown period was being cleared, as the registry had made provisions that would enable it to conduct 10 weddings simultaneously.

“In line with the COVID-19 protocols, only the couples with one witness each are allowed. We have provisions for hand washing and we tell the couples to bring their hand sanitisers along. We have tables to conduct 10 weddings simultaneously,” Adebayo said.

He added that external photographers were barred.
