Love You Like No Other: Uduak Abang & Tope Ojo Wed



A bride and a groom invited two friends to their wedding, they  met each other and now they have been joined as husband and wife at their own celebration of love. That’s what happened as Uduak Abang and Tope Ojo met at a friend’s wedding and from then their relationship bloomed into a blissful union.

Tope proposed to Uduak on their way back from a vacation. They were running late and rushing to their boarding gate to catch their flight to Lagos. Then right there in the middle of one of the busiest airports in the world – Tope knelt down in the hustling and bustling Dubai airport. Uduak noticed a crowd staring at her, she turned around and saw her love on bended knee! He asked the golden question, She said YES with tears in her eyes amidst a chorus of cheers and clapping from fellow travellers.

On the 21st of April 2012, Uduak and Tope celebrated their traditional wedding in Abuja and then on the 28th of April 2012, it was all about the fairytale! Breathtaking, that’s how we describe the bride in her ruffled ballgown with pearl detailing accentuated by her tulle shrug and pearl accessories. The groom Tope  was a handsome companion to his beautiful wife in his classic black tux. Uduak and Tope’s day was filled with love, joy and happiness perfected by God’s blessings. We totally agree with the bride when she tells us “Always make sure you hear from God before taking a bold step into marriage because He alone makes all things beautiful in His time.

BN wishes Uduak and Tope a blessed life together as one!

    Beautiful wedding. It looked very simple to me but really elegant and the bride looks very beautiful. I love the sequins spaghetti dress she wore.

    Can someone help me with a colour scheme? I noticed that this traditional wedding was blue and fuchsia. Do you think this blue will work well with a red? Thanks.

    • veeva

      August 28, 2012 at 8:48 am

      blue works well with light colors. U can match blue with a lighter shade of red *winks*

      I don’t know why bellanaija purposely doesn’t post comments when people are saying the truth!
      Please, Nneka or whatever you call yourself, don’t start something here. So they’ll become the finest tribe because of inter-ethnic marriages? Ignorance is really bliss. Comments like that are really illogical.
      Moving on, the wedding: AMAZING!
      The bride and groom are a perfect match. Wishing them long life and prosperity.
