This past weekend, Chelsea star/Ivory Coast international Didier Drogba walked down the aisle with his long-term partner and mother of his children, Lalla Diakite.

The wedding took place at the Marie de Monaco in Monaco. Though it was a private ceremony, it was definitely a grand occasion. According to online reports, the wedding was officiated by Chelsea owner, billionaire Roman Abramovich; groomsmen included Salomon Kalou and Florent Malouda. Other African stars including musician Akon were also on the guestlist. Didier and Lalla met over a decade ago when he was still a budding footballer based in Paris.

There was a Nigerian connection at the event as Nigerian musician J Martins performed alongside Fally Ipupa.

Didier and Lalla are keeping their wedding photos private but if they decide to release it, trust that BN will post the beautiful photos!

Check out paparazzi photos from the event.
