Right now in Lagos, there is one wedding that is literally on every one's lips - it's the talk-of-the-town nuptial between Phoebe, daughter of Dr. Larry and Mrs. Bridget Izamoje of the Brila FM fame and Damilola, son of Mr. & Mrs. Olusoji Asolo.
Billed for Saturday, December 3, 2016, at the Salem International Christian Centre, on Km. 14, Lekki/Épe Expressway, behind Total Filling Station, Lekki, Lagos, everything about this wedding embodies class, style and panache.
Most likely to end up as 'The Wedding of the Year', a grand reception follows immediately after the church service at the Convention Centre of Eko Hotel and Suites, on Adetokunbo Ademola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos. However, to secure a seat here isn't easy. The reason being that an Access Card, with a special and coded number, is needed.
Hear how the Guest Information Card inside the exclusive wedding IV captured it: 'ACCESS CARD - It is extremely important that you come along with your access card (s). Each card admits one person only. The Access Card works with an electronic device and we plead you bear with the operators at the gates. They have assured they will hasten confirmation and access on presentation.'
Another vital information to note: 'OUR PLEA - not a children's event - Due to restrictions, children are not allowed at the social event (s). We plead for your understanding.'
Again: 'APPETIZER - New or old school, an afternoon and evening of music, comedy, etc is lined up for you...It's celebration time! So, come with comfortable dancing shoes...'
The highly sought-after and exclusive Access Cards, we gathered, were ordered from China. They arrived only days ago and can only be used electronically. They are also not transferable.
We scooped that Phoebe and Damilola met and fell in love in the United Kingdom where they both bagged their Bachelors and Masters degrees.
Now back in the country and making significant progress professionally, the colour code for the ladies is royal blue and white gele and for the gents, white attires and navy blue caps.
Preceding their white wedding, however, would be the traditional version. Slated for 1pm, on Thursday, December 1, 2016, the venue this time would be The Civic Centre, along Ozumba Mbadiwe Road, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Again, an Access Card is needed to be part of the celebration which high society as well as friends and family members of the couple are daily and gleefully talking about.
