The lively and colourful ceremony was performed in the traditional Benin culture at the residence of the bride on Ewere Street, Etete, in Oredo Local Government Area of the state and later at a huge tent inside Edo Hotel, GRA, Benin

Although the monarch was not physically present, he was, however,  represented by his father, HRH Omooba Oluropo Ogunwusi.

His lively bride looked resplendent and regal in a Bini traditional attire complete with royal coral beads.

Ooni’s absence sources said was deliberate as it is according to tradition where wives are brought for a king and not the other way round.

A grand thanksgiving service and reception is scheduled for Ile-Ife tomorrow.
