…As Younger Sister, Mojisola Ojora Lawal Weds Today
…Female Guests To Turn Out In Resplendent Yellow Aso Ebi
Today, Saturday, November 7, the entire Lagos social establishment will literally stand still, as Gbolahan Lawal, the Lagos State Commissioner for Housing, hosts the wedding of his younger sister Mojisola Ojora Lawal.
In what promises to be a classy ceremony, beautiful Mojisola and her fiance, Engineer John Paul Meranda, will begin their journey into matrimony today. The first leg of the ceremony, which was the Engagement and Traditional wedding, took place on Thursday, November 5, at the 10th Degree Event Center, Billingsway Crescent, Oregun, Ikeja. The colour code for the engagement was purple.
The bride, Mojisola is a member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, representing Apapa Constituency. She is the last single female member of the Assembly. Mojisola is also the cousin of Honourable Ayo Joseph, the former Chairman of Apapa Lical Government Council, who is currently a member of the Federal House of Representatives.
The ELITES gathered that Moji and John actually got married in December 2014 at a registry. The event was a low-key affair, with just a handful of close family members and friends in attendance.
The couple will, today, exchange their vows at a Nikkai ceremony. This will then be followed by a grand reception at Ibidun Ituah Ighodalo’s owned Dorchester Event Center, Victoria Island.
The white wedding will follow an all yellow dress code dictate, for the female guests. Already, the wedding has thrown many society female personalities into a state of frenzy. It has also got many designers very busy and resulted into a dearth of make-up artists. This is on count of the fact that it is a party, which will draw an intimidating presence of those who dictate the pace of things within the Lagos social circuit.
The guests will be entertained by King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall, K1 De Ultimate.
The very affable Lagos Commissioner, Gbolahan Lawal and his adorable wife, Maryam are warming up to host a very colourful wedding ceremony, that will remain indelible in the minds of the guests.
