A few weeks ago, BN brought you the first photos from MBGN beauty queen/Mademoiselle Magazine publisher Tienepre Oki and banker Charles Udejiofor‘s wedding.
Now, Tien and Charles’ wedding is getting the BellaNaija Weddings treatment! All the exclusive photos from their “Walking on Sunshine” themed wedding in Delta State.
How Tien & Charles Met
A mutual friend introduced us and we became good friends. A few months after we met, we attended a wedding together. There he professed his love for me and we started dating.
We went for an event together and as we were leaving I stopped to chat with a friend. Charles then told me that he forgot to give me something as I turned to look at him, he brought out the ring and went on one knee.
It was a perfect moment!
The Dress! Twill Gazar Mermaid Gown – White by Vera Wang
Tien’s dress was an ivory mermaid silhouette strapless gown with net corset and a cowl back detail. She added an embellished sash and completed her bridal look with a veil and bouquet of yellow roses.
Tienepre Oki and Charles Udejiofor‘s wedding weekend kicked off with their traditional wedding at the bride’s family home in Warri, Delta State. It was an major show of love as friends and family from all over the world including bridesmaids from Gabon, Tanzania, South Africa, Namibia and St. Lucia gathered to celebrate Tien and Charles. The beautiful bride dazzled all in four traditional outfits! The finale was a gold blouse paired with a bronze wrapper and glorious red headtie. Her coral beads and fan completed her traditional look which matched her husband’s gold and bronze attire. The couple were joined together in the traditional way in the presence of their families.
The next day, Saturday 13th April 2013, Tien and Charles said “I Do” at the Christ Embassy Church in Warri followed by a lovely reception at Hotel Excel. The couple were not afraid to break the mould as the bride, groom, groomsmen and bridesmaids all performed a special choreographed dance to the delight of everyone present!
Such a fun and blessed day.
BN wishes Tienepre & Charles love, joy and blessings together as one.
