    Absolutely beautiful. I love her 2 dresses, especially the reception one. The groom and Uti’s swag is everything. I wish them joy, happiness, peace, kids and all the good things of marriage.

    Loool!! See Popsi getting his groove on http://static.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Ese-Walters-of-COZA-Benny-Arks-White-Wedding-in-Abuja-BellaNaija-Bride-dancing-with-her-father-600×402.jpg

      Seriously it beats me how someone with a seemingly solid background could’ve been seduced by such a charlatan. A sense of self-worth is priceless.

      it will never happen they are cowards and charlatans who use the cloak of holiness to manipulate people. I remember when Chris oyakilome went to TB Joshua church and the scandal that followed was huge he did not have the courtesy to give us his robust answer all nah wash wash

      Well said. Those that called her all kinds of names and condemned her for telling the truth have all been silenced now! Thank God.

    No one is a saint, everyone of us have our secrets perfectly hidden from the ears of the world, if we can all come out to purge ourselves clean, our reward will be more. Congrats to both of them. I am sure Benny has the largest of hearts to look beyond her past.

    I am getting married in December and I am only choosing pretty gorgeous friends to be my bridesmaid (I am excluding all the fat out of shape ones) – Am I wrong for that?
    I just want my photos to look good thats all. See this bride here, all her bridesmaid are nice and good for the eye.

      lol..first of all, congratulations….I’ll say DO YOU….No need seeking validation…but i will say this..if you have been completely honest with your “fat” friends and they know how you REALLY feel about their looks, then they might not fault you for excluding them…but if you are one of those ppl that gush about how good your “fat” friends look when they dress up and come on BN to state how you REALLY feel, then uhh, yeah……will let you finish the rest….congrats once again 🙂

      Is that what will make the marriage last? The shallowness of this comment makes me wanna classify it as a joke.

    I wish them both a happy married life, I pray that God who has begun a good work in them will be faithful to complete it, Amen!
    On a side note, looking through both her white wedding and traditional wedding pictures, I have a sneaking suspicion that she is pregnant, although the bump is barely visible, it is definitely there. I may be wrong though, but that is what my eyes can observe, just stating my opinion.
    Nevertheless, a happy married life to them! I am happy that Ese got the last laugh at the end of it all, God always fights the battles of his children!

    Congratulations Ese and Ben!!! Loved Ese’s reception dress and Ben’s suit. May God Almighty bless and preserve your home in Jesus name.
    Sidenote: What a courageous man! An example of 1st Peter 4:8. Love covers a multitude of sins. To have known her discussed and very public past and stand by her? It is usually women standing by so I am pleasantly surprised. To all who played God, una don see?

    Funky chic u r a bad friend and a user check yourself. The inner u is d real u not the outer u . The outer u is d clothing for the inner u . Your fat friends may wish u well while ur slim friends may bring negative spirit . Do u care more about the outer than the inner? Selah

    Even chubby are beautiful in their own ways. Some will have the most amazing smile or laugh or eyes or poise. Some will have this amazing grace and positivity that your slim friends wont have. They will also be there for you all the way… not to compete with you. Never mind what society tells you, sister, chubby people are dead cute! And huggable. 😉
