Mr&Mrs Ndukwe Onuoha
Ok so the day started off really early for me, cleaning and putting finishing touches here and there. It got cloudy at about 10am and I almost freaked out, somehow my big sis Ogb knew for a fact that it wasnt goin to rain so she just assured me and went to sleep....meanwhile my dad was outside blasting in tongues and commanding the weather to behave, that sorta gave me some faith.....the next time I saw him, he was in the centre of the compound with hands lifted up, giving thanks for clouds that had now 'behaved'.
Back in the room, my phone didnt stop beeping, pings were coming in like mad, I was one hot babe with a hot line that day, the phone sef begin hot for hand! lol. Hubby was running late, time was fast running, visitors had started coming, I hadnt taken my bath, ewooo! it was crazy but joy was in the air! Finally, gengen, my boo walked in with friends all dressed in linen and george wrapper and the moment my heart saw him it stopped for a moment, boy he was looking sooooo fly! My grand aunt went to my sis and whispered "is that him in the carton colour linen?" she said yes and the woman nearly collapsed..."o mara mma nwoke o!'". Me I defied all the rules and kept peeping from my room.... I got dressed and was called up for the first greeting and my shy cap of many years climbed back on my head that I couldnt even look at my younger cousins. My mum inlaw was sitted beside my dad beaming with smiles and reminding me silently how happy my mum would be up in heaven! It had been a rough walk to this path but God promised me peace and security and we got it! The horses were ready for battle for safety came from the Lord!! The highlight of the day was when I was given the drink to look for my man, my sisters were making all sorts of comments behind me and I nearly spilled the drink while I was laughing.....and when I knelt to give him the drink he drank the first half and asked me what he should do with the rest, ajebo di m!
To wrap a loooong story up, it was a beautiful day, beautiful weekend and everyone got back safe! The happiest person present must have been my mum inlaw and she infected me with that joy! Ah I didnt talk about Grand Ma Inlaw! I'll do a special post for her, she's an amazing woman ageing gracefully and the funniest person I have encountered in my life....would def give Ali Baba a huge run for his bills!
To answer many questions, there's no formal formal white wedding, just registry and church blessing then afterwards a small reception, this would be before the end of the year and we run off to Honeymoon!!! where? wait till we get back!
