Nigerian Chamberlain and British Alexandra are from different cultures – the groom is Igbo and she’s from the UK, but what binds them is their love for each other and for God.Alexandra & Chamberlain Wedding in Port Harcourt_BellaNaija 2016_Screen Shot 2016-08-08 at 11.07.19 AM

How They Met

The newlyweds met through a mutual friend at university. Chamberlain, a mechanical engineer, was getting his masters degree at Newcastle University in the UK when he was introduced to his artist bride.

The bride and groom’s Christian background and faith was the foundation to their successful relationship for three years prior to getting married. It also played a big role in their families accepting one another.

The Proposal

The proposal happened two days before Christmas in 2015. Chamberlain chose a lovely restaurant in Ponteland, Newcastle and had two of his friends and two of her friends eat at the restaurant on a table tucked away from the couple’s.

After their meal, the couple ordered dessert, and soon after the restaurant manager played Marry Me by Jason Derulo while bringing the ring on a decorated dessert tray along with a bottle of champagne.

On hearing the song, Alex was in shock and Chamberlain took her hands and got on one knee and asked her to marry him while the crowd, including their friends, stood with excitement and she happily said YES while the crowd cheered.

Advice for Other Couples

Ensure you truly love each other for who you are after you strip off financial/ other sort of interests that may attract you to someone.

Mixed culture relationships will be a challenge except you understand and accept both cultures and most importantly, you must have something in common. For us, we have the respect, fear and love for God in common.

BellaNaija Weddings wishes Alexandra and Chamberlain a blessed and beautiful life as One.

    The bide really tried on the dance floor oh… she has some moves. Her mum too. And it was so beautiful when she was saying her vows and smiling through her tears. I guess they wrote their own vows. Lovely wedding, lots of joy and love coming across in the pictures.

    Looks like she comes from a cool family. For all of them to agree to come to hot, no light, winch mosquito infested Nigeria for wedding as a bride.

      Don’t be a killjoy. A lot of Caucasians like the heat, generators are there on standby and well it could be worse with Zika and the Aedes carrier. About a week in Nigeria would have been an experience they’d have loved.

      Congrats to them. She looks fab in her traditional outfit.

      You are right dear, my husband and his family loved Nigeria and he said the one thing he would do differently if he could do the wedding all over again was to bring more people from England. This is with the embarrassment that is Portharcourt international airport. I

    Fabulous video. I loved every minute. The bride’s father has won my heart. He looks so genuinely happy for her. Love how they were lurking when she was dressing up. I wish them every happiness.

      Me three. And I kept asking myself what was making me smile like a mumu… ?

      Lovely looking couple, there was something really serene about watching them. May their boat sail on with both of them firmly kept in it by God’s Hand and for very many years to come.
