It’s been a while since I shared some highlights on events I have hosted, as I shifted focus towards guest blogs and features on Entrepreneurship & Financial Tit-bits, as well as Entertainment in the past weeks.
Well, we are back on track and today, I present to you a feature on the marriage ceremony of #rajcouple Michael and Hilda Agyepong. It’s a delayed post of about 3 weeks (forgive me😊) and those of you who follow me on Facebook and Instagram may have already fed your eyes with some photos from the events. It’s a long narrative but I hope you’ll enjoy reading and viewing the beautiful shots as captured by Pinhole_Xpressions.
Their Love Story…..
Do you believe in love at first sight? Well, Michael does and moreso, virtually. It all began with a whatsapp dp. Yes, Hilda’s photo as display picture on her friend, Alex, whatsapp in commemoration of her birthday. Michael, also a friend of Alex sees the photo of this damsel and it’s a jackpot!!! Here we are today, about a year and half later, with Mr. and Mrs. Agyepong.The Magical Whatsapp dp
The Surprise Bridal Shower…..
I was not only tipped as the official MC for the Wedding Reception but I also actively participated in planning the events, which involved not just anybody, but a bride-to-be who is more of a sister than a friend or client. Together with 7 other friends; Edna, Jemima, Priscilla, Adzo, Ruth, Stella and Aggie, we pulled off a surprise Bridal Shower for the bride, with our Chief Conspirator being the groom-to-be. It was so much fun, the following pictures can tell the story better…….
Marriage Ceremonies in Ghana are never complete without the Traditional Marriage rites popularly known as Engagement. On Monday May 1, 2017, the city of Abelemkpe in Accra came to a standstill with a well-attended and colourful red and white-themed Engagement Ceremony. After all the initial introductions of families and presentations, it was time to see the groom. Clad in a beautiful Fathia Fata Nkrumah kente cloth, the groom was ushered unto the premises with Ohemaa Mercy’s Aseda, in the company of an entourage of gentlemen, majority clothed in white.Then it was time to see the bride…the Angel who’s got Michael’s heart beating so fast. Wearing a silver with red and gold embellished beaded kente gown, the bride arrived at the grounds flanked by a bevy of beauties (my humble self inclusive😊) in white apparel and red turbans, chereographing to Eben’s Victory song. The entire ceremony was a sight to behold and just before I forget, the two elderly women “Akyeame” (linguists/local MCs) were so on point!The Akyeames at work
This was followed by a well organised and coordinated reception at the Log Base at Burma Camp. Yours truly, #theversatileemcee and #ladyonthemic Mz_Raj…. I was in full control of the mic. As part of the asides for the day, the bride dared to do the reverse of the spot your wife challenge by spotting her husband. The performances and presentations by the Krobo Girls Old Students Association (KOGA) and the Old Boys of the Presbyterian Boys Senior High School where the bride and groom respectively belong, is just unforgettable. It was also a delight working with the wedding party (bridesmaids and groomsmen) on a few weddding games and an exciting dance battle.
