To save couples from the hassles of preparations for their marriage, the Pag-Ibig Fund yesterday morning sponsored a free mass wedding for at least 99 lucky couples at the Royce Convention Center of Grand Astoria Hotel along Mayor Jaldon St., Zamboanga City.

Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco– Salazar officiated the wedding on Valentine’s Day.

Dubbed as “I Do, I Do, Araw ng Pag-ibig”, the free nationwide mass wedding included lots of freebies such as rings for the couple, food, flowers for the bride, hair and makeup for the bride and a wedding cake for the couple.

Pagibig official Joy Reyes said, this is the sixth year that Pag-ibig Fund sponsored the wedding of 100 couples in Zamboanga City.

A couple, Benjamin Estrellado and wife Margarita, thanked the Pag-ibigFund for sponsoring their wedding.

Benjamin said they have been living together for the past 37 years but it is only now that they were able to solemnize and legalize their union.
