Happy is the man who
finds a true friend, and happier is he who finds that true friend in his
partner. “And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among
yourselves, that you may dwell in peace and tranquility with them, and He has
put love and mercy between your (hearts): Verily in that are signs for those
who reflect” (Quran 30:21). Olabode Idris Adekeye and Aderonke Aminat Are took
the lifetime decision to multiply and grow old together by sealing their love for
each other in a spectacular 2 day ceremony.
The celebration of love commenced with
the traditional marriage ceremony which took place at the exquisite Landmark
Events Centre, Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos. Having respectable and influential
parents like Vice Admiral & Mrs. G.T. Adekeye and Col. & Mrs. Kayode
Are, it was no surprise that dignitaries came from far and wide to witness the
joining of the lovely couple as they begin their journey into Holy Matrimony.
Planned by Funke Bucknor of Zapphire
Events, the classy venue was filled with family, friends and well-wishers of
the couple garbed in various expensive outfits. Idris and Aminat looked breathtaking
in their lovely outfits as they received blessings upon blessings from their
parents having gone through the Yoruba traditional marital rites.
There was a performance by ‘Not the
girl’ crooner, Darey Art Alade which left the guests grooving.
A grand reception was held at the Grand
Ballroom of the world class Oriental Hotels, Lekki, Lagos in honour of
the couple. Hosted by comedian and MC, Tee-A, the turnout of guests was larger
compared to the ones present at the engagement ceremony. More dignitaries and personalities
trooped into the venue in honour of the newlyweds. From the chemistry they
displayed, holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes, it was obvious
that the two were a match made in heaven.
