This story refers to a recent chasunah held in the Ganei HaDekel Hall in Bnei Brak, a chupah that was conducted very close to shekiyah.
It appears the rabbonim of the Eida Chareidis learned the witnesses did not hear the chosson recite הרי את מקודשת לי… . As a result, the mesader kedushin, HaRav Naftoli Frenkel, a member of the Badatz and head of Kehilas Chassam Sofer Bnei Brak was asked if the words must be recited a second time.
The rav ruled the kedushin was not in place and the chosson would have to repeat his words so the witnesses heard him. The witnesses approached the cheider yichud and knocked on the door, informing the chosson and kallah of the rav’s p’sak. The kallah removed the wedding band and the chosson was m’kadeish her a second time in front of the witnesses, thereby removing any doubt as to the integrity of the chupah.
