Also speaking, the mother of the groom, Mrs Ngozi Ikeanyanwu, urged the celebrants to love each other and trust God for brighter and glorious home.
Mrs Ikeanyanwu prayed God to bless their union with wonderful children and wherewithal to cater for them.
In his words, a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Leye Oyebade, admonished the couple to build their marriage on Jesus Christ as the solid rock that can never fail them, so as to attain greater heights in their union.
While advising them to build their marriage on solid rock, Oyebade said that with Jesus in their marriage, every stronghold of aliens and red sea would give way.
On their part, the newly married couple, who disclosed that humility and care was what brought them together, pledged to remain united in love.
