They may be living in the Diamond House but last night Hakeem and Cleo glittered like gold.
The blushing bride walked down the aisle looking like a golden cloud in her sparkly gold dress. The Zambian accessorised with a silver head chain attached to her white veil and leopard print shoes.
The groom looked dashing in a black suit with a brown shirt and gold bowtie matching his lady’s dress. The Zimbabwean serenaded his woman as she made her way down the aisle being walked by Melvin.
The maid of honour, Selly and the two bridesmaids, Beverly and Dillish wore black mini dresses with a gold ribbon tied around their waists. Best man Bimp was in a grey suit with a black shirt. Big sister Pokello played MC for the evening while Reverend Michael Bassey solemnised the marriage. The couple exchanged their own prepared vows. “In life I realise one thing that you have no choice but to choose. I choose to love you forever and ever till death do us part,” said the groom.
Afterwards the best man and maid of honour both gave speeches. “You are the most loving couple I have ever seen. Even though I have only known you for two weeks,” said Selly. Afterwards the newlyweds shared their first dance. They then cut into their three-tier chocolate cake decorated with white and blue roses and sprinkles of silver. The always playful Nando was the photographer of the evening as all of the Housemates took turns taking photos with the new husband and wife. The wedding mobile was a red life size cardboard car.
The bride got emotional and teary-eyed as her man serenaded her in front of everyone at the end of the ceremony.
