When Assumpta Vitcu got engaged, a friend bought her a pile of wedding magazines. But the sight of them blunted her excitement.
"It was very disheartening not to see myself reflected in the pages," says Nigerian-British Assumpta.
She handed them to her fiancé Horia, who is Romanian. But when he looked the only black face he could find was the tiny figure of a marriage officiant in a Caribbean wedding.
Don't laugh now lads
Superlative wedding of Assumpta Ozua to Horia Victu
By africanvoice -
By Golda John – The families of Chief (Dr) and Chief (Mrs) Peter Ozua and Mr and Mrs Troader Victu delightfully gathered the Crème de la crème in the society to the wedding between Assumpta Ejeme their beloved daughter and Horia their son in a two day eclectic, classic marriage ceremony.
Assumpta Ozua and Horia Victu at the traditional wedding
The traditional wedding took place on Thursday 14th September 2017, at the Willows, Forrest Road, Ilford, London. The scenery was a royal traditional wedding set up of the Edo Kingdom, Nigeria. Princess Assumpta appeared in her traditional outfit, looking gorgeous and beautiful, while Horia Victu, the groom, an IT Engineer from Romania, transformed into her Prince charming, a typical Edo prince, who stole her heart and swept her off her feet.
Both families and all celebrity guests in attendance, were all dressed in rich traditional outfits befitting the special occasion while they danced to traditional cultural music and delighted themselves with traditional foods and drinks.
All eyes were on Assumpta as she glided beautifully down the aisle as her father, Chief (Dr) Peter Ozua led her to the front happily, yet full of emotions knowing in his heart that she was really going away.
The Service was conducted by the Rev. Fr. Albert Ofere, who focused his homily on love, forgiveness, and forbade divorce. Assumpta and Horia made their vows in front of about 500 A list celebrity guests from around the world especially from Nigeria and Romania.
The reception followed at Ditton Park Manor, Royal Berkshire. The atmosphere was whimsical, featuring a decor that embraced everyone’s mood and allowed for full relaxation, in preparation for the a la carte that followed with the very popular Nigerian jollof rice as a side.
While Assumpta was looking dainty, Horia was dapper in their outfits, more like fairy tale inspired characters.
The bride’s mother Chief (Mrs) Elizabeth Ozua, well known for her sense of fashion, was simply scintillating and gorgeous.
The marriage ceremony between Assumpta and Horia was indeed a memorable one. Happy married life to the newly wedded, Mr & Mrs Victu.
You move me. You shift my equilibrium like weights on a scale, you tip the balance and upturn my spirits.
Meet the incredible. Assumpta and Horia.
Assumpta has been a wonderful Nu Bride reader for ever a year, so it is such a joy to be able to share her and her husband Horia’s love story with you today.
Another online dating success story! Hurrah! This is the love story of all love stories, so hold onto your hats.
Assumpta of Nigerian heritage and Horia of Romanian heritage met on OK Cupid. It was love at first sight for Horia (which is ironic because Horia never thought he would get married), and Assumpta was Horia’s first love! For Assumpta, Horia was a little more of a slow burner, but on their first date it didn’t take Assumpta to realise he was a very special man indeed.
Assumpta is a writer, poet, blogger and storyteller born in Nigeria and raised in London where she now lives with her husband. She received her LLM in Law from Coventry University and her MA in Creative and Professional Writing from Brunel University. Assumpta's work centers on love, loss and deracination.
