Monday, March 28, 2016 – all roads led to Abiriba in Abia state as the style influencer and digital media entrepreneur Noble Igwe and his friends and family went to pay the bride price for Chioma Otisi, a brand manager for Fayrouz, a branch of Nigerian Breweries.
In December 2015, Noble Igwe proposed to Chioma with a Rebecca Noff engagement ring and the first photos from their traditional marriage photos can be found here. For Noble, the ring and proposal had to be special and so Rebecca Noff designed a special one for Chioma.
Before asking for her hand in marriage, Noble first spoke with his folks to prepare for the “Iku Aka” which literally means “knocking on the door” in the Igbo language. This is a traditional rite that officially informs the girl’s parents of your intentions to get married to their daughter.
Whilst the families were discussing, Noble took Chioma to the house where he was born while telling her stories of his childhood. There, he knelt down and proposed to her officially. Noble Igwe engagement photos
