Stephanie Okereke Linus Explains why she had her marriage in Paris

It’s been more than a year since Stephanie and hubby Linus tied the knots grand style in France.
Here’s what she told BellaNaija about the rumors that swirled sometime
in December that she was pregnant. She also got to share why and how she
and her husband chose France.

  • BN:  Sometime in December, rumours swirled that you were pregnant. How did you take this?
 It’s a good thing. That means they (Nigerians) are praying for me to
pop out the little ones. Yeah, the little ones are coming soon, but you
know, everything is in God’s hands and I’ll have a baby when I’m
supposed to have a baby. I am definitely not under any kind of pressure.
We wish for it to happen and of course it’s going to happen.
  • Why did you choose to have your wedding in Paris?
 We just wanted something different. If it was in Nigeria, it would have been a real carnival but we wanted
something serene. The love is a little bit sweeter in Paris, you know
it can be hard in Nigeria (laughs). He feels he is a King and I’m a
Queen, that is what we call ourselves, and we wanted to have this whole
royal thingy going and we knew that we wouldn’t get that serenity in
Lagos. We also wanted our families to bond, we wanted our parents to
experience something new, to travel and relax. It was special to us and
we wanted everyone around us to have special memories. We wanted
something spiritual and divine. Not like we couldn’t get it here, but we
wanted something to look back at with joy. We wanted to do us.
  • Despite the fact that it was a destination wedding, you had a good number of family and friends from Nigeria join you.
 It was just God showing himself. We told God that we wanted to get
married in Paris and He should give us a sign if we should do Paris. And
He gave us a sign. Arik Air donated one full return flight to us at no
cost. Also, Air France gave us good discounts on tickets and the Embassy
was really helpful with visas. It’s the grace of God that gets us
things like that
