We’re elated to present Blessing Akpan and Gideon Yobo‘s Liverpool wedding. From their meeting at church to getting married a month ago, their paths were certainly destined to cross.

The groom was moved to tears when he saw Blessing coming down the aisle, but of course it was a joyful day of festivities, complete with romantic moments including a horse and carriage ride, releasing doves, and ending in their names lit up in flames!

Bigg Ayo captured all the magic in his lens.

“Searching for Mr or and Mrs Right? Don’t sweat ‘experimenting & experiencing’ Why am I tempted? WAIT, God doesn’t do trial and error. Wait for God’s specific one for you rather than trying out generic options. Read through God’s word, meditate and get wisdom and understanding to discern the ideal attributes to look out for, rather than outward appearance of potential suitors.Blessing Akpan & Gideon Yobo Wedding in Liverpool, UK - BellaNaija - July 2015_MG_6931Hide your heart in God’s word and Mr Right will find it there. Destinies aren’t by chance. God has called us, predestined us, He’s justified us and glorified us. It’s scripted even before we’re conceived in our mother’s womb. It means not even our dear lovely mum can manipulate this. We must move out of our comfort zone to locate who we truly are in Christ and pursue our purpose wholeheartedly. Grace and peace has already been multiplied on us for this very reason.”Blessing Akpan & Gideon Yobo Wedding in Liverpool, UK - BellaNaija - July 2015_MG_7685BellaNaija Weddings wishes Blessing and Gideon a life and marriage filled with love, laughter and blessings.

      It is the groom and that’s her maid of honor (could be her sister or even his). She’s getting emotional giving her speech/toast. You can see it a couple pictures after too

    Nice wedding, I think Bella Naija should do us a favour and let us know what the bride and groom do for a living to be able to afford a wedding like this. Is the groom a footballer or was the wedding bankrolled by Joseph Yobo. Just curious. (of course I know it is none of my business. Lol) I was looking out for Adaeze Yobo, I didnt see her in any of the pictures
