Everything about this wedding was grand.
The traditional wedding ceremony, the event planning, the couple’s attire, the decoration and even the cake!
Tagged Ehiken2017, the wedding, which held on Saturday November 18, rocked the foundation of Benin City. The bride, Lagos-based Ehizogie Ogbebor, who is the CEO of Sayaveth Interiors and Hotel, got married to a Warri millionaire, Kenneth Bramor.
From when the bride got a proposal few weeks ago (the first proposal after 10 years of been a divorcee with two kids) to the preparation for the wedding, the Instagram community was on heat!
Photos of bride going to source for aso ebi, and that of pre-wedding flooded Ehizogie’s timelines. She gave some Instagram followers free aso ebi too.
According to the elated bride, Ehizogie, the initial number of guests expected was 800 but it skyrocketed to 3000!
Quite comfortable, she prepared the minds of guests with what would happen at her wedding in Benin city. She made an announcement on her page just two day to the wedding.
“Important announcement ….. Pls Guys note that all flights on the 18th to Benin are fully booked… it’s better to come in 17th or if you have to come in 18th you can fly into Warri .. Warri to Benin is 40mins drive … Also we have a CONVOY OF 10 CAMRY AND 3 BUSES LEAVING ON THE 17TH MORNING (FRIDAY) WITH ADEQUATE SECURITY … TAKE OFF IS FROM TANTALIZERS IN LEKKI PHASE 1… 9AM.” (sic)
By Saturday, November 18, the guests which included Biodun Okeowo aka Omobutty and a host of Instagram celebrities were in Benin.
The highlight wedding was when the couple presented two cars (Toyota Camry) and declared it would be given as souvenirs to lucky winners of a raffle draw at the traditional wedding reception.
Meanwhile, before the wedding day, Ehizogie narrated how she met her lover:

Though reliable sources said Ehizogie is Kenneth’s third wife (he is a polygamist) it seems he loves her more than his wives especially the first wife that they have been married for 22 years.
Guests are still sharing photos of themselves at the beautiful wedding.
