The party colours were purple and yellow for families and guests while the bride and groom changed from one attire to another. It was their day!
The Chairman of the day was no other person but the ex Governor of Delta state, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan. For him, the day was full of surprises. According to him, he did not know that he was going to be made the chairman of the day, and added to that, since it was his birthday, an array of birthday celebration had already been tucked into the day’s event without his prior knowledge!

Guests were shocked when after the marriage rites of the youngest couple in town was rounded up, a new couple was warming up to join the married peoples league in nearest future, guess what, a young man, made a marriage proposal, to his charming girlfriend right there at the event! Of course, she gladly and publicly accepted!
