Weddings

Kalabari bride, Otonye weds British Groom, Richard (photos)

The other day, we featured the beautiful inter racial wedding of a Chinese Man, Jason Xong and his Nigerian lover, Eka which held in Akwa Ibom.

Now we have got another interesting feature and this time the groom, Richard hails from the South Coast of the united kingdom while Otonye the bride is from Abonnema, Jack Compound, the great Kalabari Kingdom of Rivers State, Nigeria!!

Otonye and Richard tied the knot traditionally in the Kalabari way (Igwa Sime) on the 14th day of December, 2019 in central Port Harcourt at L. A. Kings tent event Centre.

All the Kalabari (Calabari) marriage activities were observed; which involves- Payment of bride prize Opening of box (Igbefinji) Buying of mouth (Bibife) Cutting of cake Couple dance Vote of thanks and snapping of pictures and making of videos…



Gushing about the grand wedding, their photographer, GaffMultimedia, has this to say:

“The best thing a couple can ever give their wedding photographers is not
all your money, it is time!! And the bride knew this because she is also
a photographer; and Richard is very very calm, even when the weight of
our Kalabari (Ijaw) attire was stressing him, he was patient enough to
allow us bring to them an international wedding photography”
