Newly-wedded Rita Dominic, a Nollywood actress, has drawn attention to how the UAE visa ban nearly cost her her wedding gown.
This past weekend, the Nollywood actress wed Fidelis Anosike in a lavish white ceremony in Yorkshire, England.
The 47-year-old actress describes how the UAE restriction almost caused the wedding to fail, but her designer, Michael Nardi, went above and above to make sure the occasion was a success in a recent Instagram post intended to express her thanks.
She wrote: “Thank God for a beautiful weekend full of love and joy. Thank you to @micheal5inco for making my dream wedding gown. It was a lot of hard work and patience since we were in two different countries. The UAE ban almost ruined it all but designer @micheal_nardi_ who you see in this video came to the rescue by going above and beyond to make the necessary alterations and final fittings. So huge hugs to both.”
She also expressed her gratitude to her “dream crew” for making her look beautiful for the day.
“Thank you to my dream team who worked hard to get me looking good in this gown. Love you all from the bottom of my heart. @thestudiobysbym @oluchionuigbo @lessandrasbeauty @bkuniquehair @kateokpo,” she said.
Recall that the UAE declared a few weeks ago that it would no longer be issuing visas to Nigeria and 19 other nations through its authorized travel agencies in a number of different nations.
