Nollywood Film Actress and Producer, Rita Dominic’s star-studded bridal shower was in full swing over the weekend hosted by Moët & Chandon.
The delightful actress celebrated at the Ebonylife place’s Jinja restaurant; on Sunday, April 10th, 2022 in the company of a few good friends. Friends enjoyed a 3 course Asian fusion menu, paired elegantly with Moët and Chandon champagne.
Moët & Chandon has created magical moments for more than 270 years, toasting the most glamorous of royal weddings in history and delighting couples and their guests worldwide with grand gestures in the celebration of love. On Rita Dominic’s special day, the luxury brand celebrated the Nollywood bride-to-be in style.
Rita Dominic stunned in a gorgeous shift dress, looking every bit the bride-to-be.
It was an evening of fun, gifts and games, and a feeling of warmth for the beautiful movie star, in celebration of the wedding to come. We could truly see how beloved Rita is to her industry friends as they took turns to give speeches and words of advice to the bride to be.
Nollywood icons Ajoke Silva, Ego Boyo and sister of bride-to-be, Doreen Ene who have enjoyed long-lasting marriages dropped words of wisdom for Rita. Joke gave a heartfelt speech that included a Yoruba proverb which translates ‘Who has taken their time before taking a step will not make a mistake.’
Doreen Ene advised the bride-to-be to keep good communication with her spouse and said ‘you must continue to have fun and smile with your husband.’
The pre-wedding party was filled with several emotional moments. One of such moments was when Actress Kate Henshaw, joined by all the ladies, sang Dionne Warwick’s “That’s what friends are for”, moving Rita to tears of joy. In her own speech, Rita stated that so many of her friends, many who were not there, had showered her with so much love already. Rita told her friends ‘I am honestly overwhelmed by the amount of love you all have shown me by being here today, your presence and warm words have made my heart melt like butter tonight. I will hold on to your words dearly as I go into this new phase.’
And in response, fellow actress and friend, Ini Edo said she was about to witness how much people in the industry love her, saying “many are changing their already tight schedules to attend the wedding”.
The evening ended with media mogul and owner of Ebonylife, Mo giving the vote of thanks. Thereafter, the ladies took to the dance floor and showed us what Nollywood does best, even when it comes to dancing. Nobody wanted the night to end as it was indeed filled with great camaraderie!
The line-up of functions has already begun for the couple. Plans for the nuptial are concluded, and it’s count down season as we anticipate all the blissful moments to come.
