Pillars of high society congregated at Tafawa Balewa Square, Onikan, Lagos, in the afternoon of Saturday, March 1, 2014, as one of the daughters of late publisher of The Guardian tied the nuptial knots in Urhobo tradition.
From billionaires to governors, captains of industry and commerce to leaders of the faithful, professionals to socialites, the day was exciting and blissful as colours of the rainbow glowed and sparkled as different aso ebi painted the arena joyous.
Omotuvie Alexia Ibru and Maxwell Herbert Peile led the legion of the happiest as they began the first leg of their union.
Lady Maiden Ibru, mother of the bride, was over the moon as she worked the arena, back slapping and hugging, shaking hands and waving to those who made the day eventful.
She couldn’t wipe away the smile on her lips and the laughter in her throat as she danced and soaked in the joy of the day.
From beginning to the end of the colourful traditional engagement, mirth never left and happiness stood firm and erect.
WE IDENTIFY WITH YOU – The in-laws of the Ibrus and their friends identified with the tradition of the colourful Urhobo by donning the beautiful wrapper and top preferred in that part of the land of the blessed and favoured.
THICKER THAN WATER – The Ibrus, sons and daughters of the Agbarha-Otor clan, supported each other on this glorious occasion.
PASTOR ADEFARASIN STEPS OUT WITH BETTER HALF, IFEANYI – House on the Rock’s Pastor Paul Adefarasin and his wife, Ifeanyi joined legions in the joy of the day.
