The lovebirds Anuli Onwuteaka and Ifeanyi Okechukwu hit it off in the courtroom!
The bright bride and groom are both lawyers. Their beautiful Abuja and Anambra wedding was grand – filled with their closest friends and family, a performance by Di’Ja made the day even more memorable.

How We Met
from Anuli, the bride
We met in court (as we are both lawyers). We started off as friends – he was coming out of a court session while I was going into another session, but he did not stop me immediately. As a patient man, Ifeanyi waited at the car park until I got out of my session, he approached me – then he washed me sha – we got talking, exchanged numbers and that was it.
We both travelled for the weekend. I wasn’t expecting a proposal, but on one special night, he went the whole nine yards, got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife, I said “YES!!!” And here we are.
Advice for Couples
- Pray! Pray! Pray! Put God first
- Get a planner who understands your vision and just have FUN! Our wedding was exquisitely planned to perfection by Exquisite Events Abuja, very professional team.
- Finally, attend pre-marital classes together, it is very important. It breaks all communication barriers and it’s the foundation towards a great and happy union.
BellaNaija Weddings wishes Anuli and Ifeanyi an honourable and happy home.
