The Celebrity Wedding of 2012! BellaNaija presents the Official Photos from Stephanie Okereke & Linus Idahosa’s Fairytale Wedding in Paris



BellaNaija Weddings brought you the first photos and first look at the official wedding video for Nollywood superstar Stephanie Okereke and Linus Idahosa‘s fairytale wedding which took place on the 21st of April 2012 at the Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay located in the Chevreuse valley in the Rambouillet state-owned forest, just outside Paris, France.

You’ve seen the twitpics, you’ve seen the video but you know we just had to give Stephanie and Linus the complete the BN Weddings experience!

Let’s start with the proposal! Linus proposed to Stephanie on her birthday in October 2010. He reportedly told her “…Marry me and be the mother of my children. I love you.” So sweet!
The couple spent the next 15 months planning their wedding with the help of Paris-based wedding planners, Fete in France. Their wedding weekend started with a luxe pre-wedding boat cruise with close friends and family in attendance.

Stephanie selected her dream dress “Euterpe” from the 2012 Elie by Elie Saab collection, the Lebanese Couturier’s line for Pronovias. She completed her bridal look with a cathedral length lace veil, sparkly Mui Miu shoes, a dainty tiara and a bouquet of cascading orchids. Linus was reminiscent of French royalty in his white ensemble. Stephanie and Linus’ wedding was beyond beautiful! Fireworks, roses, candlelight, couture and love! Every single element was amazing. We love, love, love!

BN wishes Stephanie and Linus all the very best in their journey as husband and wife. May each day be blessed and filled with favour.


In case you missed it, Stephanie has launched a new lifestyle site –

      I agree its classy. I think its helped she did it out of Niaja. Not that am saying niaja no get great scenery but it helped to avoid unnecessary people that can gatecrash ur wedding and mess it up..

      its flawless….

      i pray you both will not cry in sorrow over today i.e. ur union but be lifted time each time you are both down. When its time to have children, I pray your body retains seed. xxx Have a great life together. Wishing you JESUS best.

    • bee

      September 18, 2012 at 11:47 pm

      i concur on “ridiculous attention to detail”…. Perfection defined in a wedding and this is the definition…..Stephanie’s wedding. and key is they both looked happy regardless and seemed to be enjoying each other more than the ambience.

      May God bless them with kids in Jesus name. Amen. But that said, what if they didn’t have kids, they will cease to be human right? We shouldn’t rejoice at what God have already blessed them with abi? Honestly, you need a life!

    Absolutely breath taking…She definitely deserves this after what she went through in her previous marriage. Steph may everyday of your marriage to Linus be just like your wedding day filled with love, joy and laughter IJN. Btw Nigerians this is what a wedding should be like ‘intimate and personal’, not that circus show people always have in Lagos with half the city in attendance.

  51. Tolake

    September 18, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Stephanie, the only thing that touched me about your wedding is the fact that you did it outside the country . You are a smart woman. (1) You have control over your crowd (2) You are just free to be yourself anyone who know get visa or who no fit afford am no fit attend your wedding. Keep being smart.

May your marriage be blessed with all the loving and priceless things you both dreamed of. May you look back in 50yrs and celebrate like this again. Amen

    The classiest and nicest nigerian (african) wedding I have ever seen. The wedding of the decade. So well detailed and classy, not overbearing, just right. Name me one nigerian wedding that surpasses this one not even the several billonaires daughters ones pass this one. None whatsover at least that I know of. Pure class in all sense of the word. Difference between Razz and Class. This goes to show u can give a hundred thousand dollars to a razz chick for a wedding and fifty thousand dollars to a classy chick for a wedding and the classy chick will surpass the razz for sure. Stephanie through our eus as we been watching for over 10yrs on screen has, had a lot of heartbreaks in her personal live (from her old interviews), almost lost her life in an accident (yet she never gave up even if it meant using crutches or canes in a movie scene to be able to walk) and in a few years see what God has done.blessed her enormously with a cute handsome husband and a classy dignified wedding unsurpassed. There is a biblical quote to this testimony but I forgot. If anybody is going thru any relationship heartbreaks in life, Stephanies story should be a testmony to u that God always comes thru and he’s never late. Stephanie May God bless ur marriage forever and may God bless u with babies as many as the tier of ur cake and as gorgeous and handsome as u and Linus

    While this is an amazing (a really, really amazing) wedding .. let’s not forget that it costs more and is more of an effort to put together than the ‘Nigerian circus wedding’ we all seem to be complaining about… So unless we can afford to call all the shots financially and otherwise, maybe we should just let our folks do what they can … and save this for our dreams or vow renewals when we are financially set!

    If you think money is not good then you have to think again. Some have dreams about having their wedding like this but no money to execute their plans. I REFUSE TO BE BROKE.

    September 19, 2012 at 11:40 am

    This is the best wedding I’ve seen till date; this is indeed a fairy tale wedding brought to reality.

    Everything is just mwah! I’m short of words to describe what I saw. The video brought the pictures to life.

    I must give kudos to the planners of this wedding-from the couple to the venue decorator, the orchestra, the photographer, cinematographer etc. This is classy at its PEAK!

    This is the BEST wedding video I’ve seen till date; it was as if I was watching a movie preview. I was gobsmacked when the groom was taking his vows with the music playing in the background, that particular scene did it for me. It asked myself if I was watching a movie or a real life wedding.

    The vows taking scene, the fireworks scene with Katy Perry’s music being played was the BOMB!!!!!!!

    Happy Married Life.

    Absolutely breathe taking, i hope our wedding planners can learn from this be abit more minimal, not the overly decorated hall, overly decorated cake, overly over done every thing, such that thers no point of focus. every thing just tied in, u dont need to guess the theme, its so obvious

    this is one actress that came close to giving genevieve a run for her money back unlike the other suegbe *hiss*. she was loved the moment she graced screen and got many roles and proved herself. her accident and divorce wahala slowed her career yet she sits ontop as A-list. my advice for you steph, choose only good movie roles & leave the american british accent thing or padi padi. u have a beautiful wedding and supportive husband now go ahead and make your career more beautiful too. happy married life girl

    Nice. There have been a lot of Nigerian weddings like this, even far elaborate but not in Nigeria…I have been to some in Canada and a bit here in the States. It is just that most people keep it even classier by keeping their affairs private. But for Nollywood types…I am really impressed by this one.
