Following the remarkable Traditional Wedding, which was successfully conducted in Benin, the capital of Edo State, Nigeria, the previous week, the bridal train switched over to London, the Queen’s country.
London Streets were a Glow!
And all the way down from Cromwell road to Chelsea, the venue of the church wedding, the London streets where the unusual and colourful bridal train traversed, were lighted up, by its presence. A lot the Londoners, as the duellers of the city are called, were curious all the way, but only to smile and cheer on the couple and the bridal train. Some even waved caringly and hail some greetings at the motorcade, on that very bright sunny day.
But on this sacred day the thrills and funs of the wedding added to the great looks of baby London, with its alluring boulevards, sidewalks, and palatial domes and serenity of the United Kingdom.at the event elicited a prolonged and tumultuous applause.
Again, the streets wore the semblance of a traditional African festival procession, with the presence of royal attires and impetuses. Remarkably, the presence of the Olu of Warri, father of the Bride, brought more royalty and colour to the event. The Atuwase Ogiame II of Warri and the number one traditional ruler in Delta State Traditional Council, in his full regalia added up. His dignified presence at the event elicited a prolonged and tumultuous applause.
The Church Service Proper!
The Church Wedding happened to be astonishing and conducted at the St Luke’s Church, in Chelsea, West London. Before the arrival of the, bride, in a plush of white Ross Royce Bentley, alongside her billionaire father Capt. Hosa Okunbo, the church was already filled to the brim, by a gregarious crowd that sang enthusiastically with the church choir group.
