Elsie Unuane and Okwudire Ordor had travelled to Nigeria for his brother’s wedding, after the celebration, Okwudire went back to London while Elsie stayed in Nigeria for the rest of the summer holiday.
So you can only imagine her surprise when one quiet evening, after a day out with friends, she arrived back home and saw Okwudire in her house! Elsie was so confused and kept asking what he was doing there…his response? In the presence of her mother and sisters, he knelt on one knee and said “I came all this way babe to ask you if you will marry me” and of course, she said “YES”.
That was the beginning of Elsie and Okwudire’s wedding journey….
On the 24th of December 2011, Elsie and Okwudire said “I Do” in the presence of their loved ones, family and friends.
The joyous occasion was a total fairytale experience.
The bride was breathtaking in her stunning lace dress by Suzanne Neville. The ivory corded lace dress with a fitted corset, beaded belt and full tulle skirt was a perfect fit for the beautiful bride. Elsie completed her bridal look with a standout hairpiece and lace sleeves for the wedding ceremony. Okwudire complemented his blushing bride in a sleek black Tuxedo by Tom Ford paired with a black tie. After their ceremony, the celebration transitioned to the reception venue which looked amazing with ivory, champagne and gold hues giving it a refreshingly serene yet glamorous vibe. The rest of the day was filled with even more well-wishes, prayers, dancing, lots of fun including surprise performances by Paul Play Dairo and Wizkid.
It was a fabulous day celebrating Elsie and Okwudire’s love!
BN wishes Elsie & Okwudire the very best of love, life, happiness and God’s favour together as one.
