Sights from Ifeanyi and Chioma Onu-Wogu’s Traditional Wedding in Owerri

Oct 12, 2015 | Fashion

Traditional weddings are such a delightful event/experience.. Nigeria has different cultures and traditions spanning throug the vast geographical zones..

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of travelling to Owerri in Imo State (Eastern Nigeria) for the traditional wedding of Ifeanyi-Onu Wogu and Chioma Eke. Ifeanyi is a really dear cousin and I was super excited to go witness him wed his lady love..

Unfortunately, I missed some of the exciting bits  such as the bride’s first outfit ..and finding her groom in the crowd.. All so quaint and very romantic.. but still ..I managed to get some pictures!

 

The picture below captures the grooms dad praying/giving the couple his blessings.. It is usually quite an emotional moment at traditional marriages..

Another major highlight was the cake;  Shaped like a calabash and bible, a healthy mix of cultural traditions infused with religion (Christianity).

Ifeanyi and Chioma cut their cake. On a side-note?? How gorgeous is the bride!! She is so pretty!
