The groom on his special day:

“The planning of this wedding was actually a pleasurable one. Farrah and I both have very similar tastes, so it was very easy to agree on things. The most important aspects of the planning for us were unconventionality and having a great time. By that I mean we really wanted to dance the night away, which we happily did.

“Farrah wore a black dress which was an expected surprise to many guests!

“Another pleasantry for the guests was experiencing the Nigerian custom of spraying money; a moment where the bride and groom dance, whilst guests spray them with money.”
