” From the groom, Karl: I’m just a very blessed man, I can’t really call it luck because luck can’t create this…

This woman would follow me to my cleaning job, almost every Monday and Thursday evening some years back. Even as I carried the black bags to the waste storage and scrubbed the toilets, she would still look at me like I was the man! – I told her I was born to be an influential man on a world stage and she stuck by me until it began to manifest. We had to delay the big day last year, but delay does not mean denial.The joy, miracle and spectacle that was yesterday was right on time. Love’s time, God’s time”.


“From the bride, Cassandra: My mum was diagnosed with cancer last year, she told me about her lump on mother’s day and within two months she was gone. Karl prayed and fasted with me daily.  After she passed it was so hard for the both of us but God saw us through. Karl even got a tree planted on Neckar’s Island (Richard Brandon’s island) as my mum had always wanted to do that”.

Cassandra_Karl_White-Wedding_BellaNaija_2016_Smedley_Shots_8_Cassandra_Karl_White-Wedding_BellaNaija_2016_Smedley_Shots_6_How They Met

Cassandra and Karl met through an interest she had in him for a show that she  was trying to create about ex-gang members. That was the first time they met and would only see each other for filming purposes, as they did not have any feelings or relations at that point.

They officially met up again when they both attended the Word of Grace Ministries in Brixton, London.
It wasn’t love at first sight however it grew and blossomed into something great as Karl expressed his interest in her after he heard the sound of her voice at a church service and wanted to know more and the rest brings them to the present day as husband and wife.Cassandra_Karl_White-Wedding_BellaNaija_2016_Smedley_Shots_3_The Proposal
At the 10th year anniversary of their church Karl was performing a rap song he made and then said “the next song is featuring Cassandra Swaby” and invited her up on stage. A congregation of over 300 people rushed to the front of the church and separated them, he didn’t even get a chance to put the ring on her finger until they eventually settled and the couple prayed and sealed everything with a yes.

      As in…my expectations were soooo high. BN you can exaggerate sha. Congrats to them (still did not see the oomph factor though)

      Congrats to this fine couple. The bride is gorgeous, her body is banging. Ghanaian women are the definition of “she carry front, she carry back” she’s too package. Their body is rightly curvaceous.
      Who said, you can’t rock a simple natural hair and look beautiful on your wedding day. The bridemaid outfits is fab.
      I read, the groom is a reformed gang leader. Happy for him, that he cleaned up and living a better life.

    I LoVE it.. Her gown is everything & yes, the dancing part was amazing.

    • Dieumariee.

      July 27, 2016 at 4:49 pm

      Her gown was made by a Nigerian! Check the credits. We full ground all over the world. Our head dey dere. JAH bless.

      The bridal party dances and fun: the advantages of having friends you’ve been with and grown with for years, and of having had a long-term relationship. Your friends all know you as a couple and your friends all know each other. By your wedding day, it’s all family and everyone’s in sync and so comfortable with each other and united for the same cause. no long story. Fun and joy all the way. God bless their union. Congratulations.

      She watched him wash toilets, carry out the black bin bags and STILL looked at him like he was the MAN! If that’s not a great (yes, NOT “”the greatest””, The GREATEST is “”For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”” John 3:16) love story, I really don’t know what is then.

    Were there any elders in attendance? Looks more like a club night than a wedding.
    Loved the dress and traditional outfit worn by the wedding party.
