The ceremony which took place in her home town, Mbaise on Tuesday in Imo State was star-studded. This also didn’t come as a surprise to many, that a lot of movie stars could fly from their different locations, just to grace the occasion because Rita Dominic is one screen icon many people love dearly in the industry, both young and old, mainly because of her selfless, simple and caring attitude to people both in and outside of the industry.

Prior to her traditional wedding in Imo State, her friends and colleagues in the industry threw a colourful and intimate bridal shower party in Lagos for her.

The multiple award-winning superstar is one of the top-rated in the industry. She is also one actress that has kept her private life very private and has never flaunted any man on social media.

Many concluded this man must really be indeed special to her, and the relationship was very serious as well.

The lovers met during the 2017 Africa International Film Festiva (AFRIFF) session on the film business in Lagos. But Rita being a very private person has kept everything under wraps until last December when she unveiled him. They eventually got engaged and finally tied the knot traditionally on the Easter season of April 18 and 19 in Mbaise, Imo State.

Over 50 A-list stars stormed Owerri for the traditional marriage. The entire event was planned by Amartha David one of the outstanding and exceptional event planners in the business. The venue for the wedding was totally transformed with the traditional setting of green and gold as colours of the day.

Over 50 movie stars stunned in a green and gold Aso-Ebi, which lost 150,000 naira. Despite the fact that these celebrities outdo each other in looking their best, they all dressed decently, without unnecessarily revealing any part of their body which has been the trend lately among celebrities.

Despite the success of the wedding and the close relationship Rita Dominic shares with her colleagues in the industry, fans and well-wishers were surprised that some certain movie stars were absent at the wedding despite the wedding being fixed for the Easter holiday period. Kate Henshaw and Rita Dominic have been best of friends for decades, she was also present at the bridal shower party which took place at the Ebony Place a few days before the wedding. Many kept wondering why she was absent for the wedding proper. Though she celebrated the couple on her Instagram page on that day.

Genevieve Nnaji and Rita Dominic are from the same village and have equally shared good relationships in the industry, so many were surprised, she didn’t make it too. Screen diva, Omolola Jalade too was absent.

Funke Akindele has been going through a lot lately, probably that is the reason, she couldn’t make it.

Omoni Oboli was also absent, though she celebrated them on her Instagram page. The videos she shared on Instagram shows, that she is in location for a new project.
