The families of Sir Tony Ifeanyichukwu and Lady Elizabeth Adaeze Ezenna and Mr. Lucky Frank and Mrs. Cynthia Esther Gboneme became one on Saturday, October 11, 2014, after their children, Uchenna Cynthia Ezenna and Chukueku Elurihuka Gboneme, were joined in holy matrimony at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Victoria Island, Lagos. YES INTERNATIONAL!’s GBENGA SHABA and TOKUNBO IBIKUNLE were there and bring you some happenstances and exclusive photographs…
THE CHURCH: The church was beautifully decorated. Clean, neat and cosy, it accommodated all effortlessly and comfortably. Situated on 14, Musa Yar’Adua Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, it was such a lovely place to be in.
GROOM’S ARRIVAL: He came in a black Escalade Platinum Taylor with his best man. But left the venue with his wife in a navy blue Lexus, LS 460 SUV.
BRIDE’S RIDE: A black customized Rolls Royce, with Elenma as its number plate, brought the bride to the church.
THE BRIDE’S ATTIRE: It was an all white flowing gown, with dots of silver shining and no blemish at all. She clutched a light green bouquet.
THE GROOM’S WEAR: A nicely cut black suit, white shirt and black bow tie were just it.
THE GROOM’S MEN: Young and handsome, there were four white men among the groom’s men, all clad in navy blue suits, white shirts and black bow ties. But the best man went the way of the groom: a black suit, white shirt, black bow tie and black shoes to match.
PRETTY DAMSELS: They all looked as if they were born on the same day. Beautiful, young, slim, fresh and all light complexioned. They complemented the bride’s colour in their free flowing gowns.
SIMPLE EZENNAS: They were simple in their attires. Sir Tony wore a burgundy agbada while his wife wore a gray blouse and wrapper, with a head gear to match.
MUCH LOVE: The over 1,000 capacity ground floor of the church was filled to the brim with families and friends as well as church members who came to celebrate with the parents and their children.
THE MESSAGE: The officiating minister, Rev. Fr. Henry Omonisaye, CMF, was very brief and direct. He reminded the young couple of the need to make God their number one and never to involve a third party in all their dealings.
THE RECEPTION: The black tie reception was at the ballroom, Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island. Beautifully decorated in gold lights, which was the colour of the day, the reception hall had four food stands and a win bar.
A LOT TO EAT: From finger foods, appetizers, soups, desserts, salads, swallows, stews to sea foods, chicken dishes, beef dishes and all the traditional Igbo dishes, there was indeed a lot to eat and drink.
DRINKS TOO: Non-alcoholic drinks like Chapman, Amstel Malta, Chivita and Passionista were served. While alcoholic ones like Cosmpolitan, Sour Apple Martini, Amerreto Sour, Long Island, Mojito and Moet equally flowed freely.
WHAT IS GOING ON?
This was an appropriate question as the reception which should have started by 2.00 P.M was delayed for hours. The duo of Frank Edoho and Tee A, who were the comperes, kept buying time with different tactics while guests were left wondering: what’s going on? Frank started the event, but later stepped aside for Tee A.
ASO EBI REIGNS: The wine and gold aso ebi added glamour and glitz to the wedding. The bride’s family and friends regaled in it with all sorts of head gears and styles on parade.
SHARP BAND WITH LIVE MUSIC: Anesi Igharue, the leader of band and his people, were on the stand. And they never allowed any dull moment all through. They worked with a DJ to further spice up the event.
NAETO C AND WIFE STEPPED OUT: Handsome crooner, Naetochuckwu Chikwe, aka Naeto C, came with his wife, Nicole. The lovely couple looked radiant as they walked in, hand in hand.
K-SQUARE AND HERCULES PROVIDED SECURITY: Always stern and serious. They manned the event with absolute authority. Ensuring that miscreants were chased far away.
CUTTING OF THE CAKE: A three-step all-white cake it was. Parents of the couple were also called to witness the cutting. Tee A, the compere, handled it to everyone’s delight.
CHAIRMAN’S SPEECH: Sir (Eze) Duru Onyima (SAN) was the chairman of the event. He advised the couple to always put God first in all their dealings. He equally enjoined them to make trust their watchword and never allow hear-says to interfere with their marriage and joy and happiness.
THOSE PRESENT AT THE RECEPTION: Businessmen, politicians, clergymen, entertainers and people from all walks of life graced the occasion. They came in their best attires, most especially as the dress code was strictly a black tie affair. Although you can trust Nigerians, different nicely cut attires outside of that, were still adorned by some.
