Richard and Martha of Toronto, Canada, tied the knot in a glamourous wedding setting in the winery vicinity of St. Catherines and Niagara, Ontario, Canada.
Guests from across Canada, the UK, US and elsewhere started arriving in the days preceding the wedding. The bride’s dad, Bob Umar arrived in Niagara with a heavyweight entourage from Canada, US and the UK; while the groom’s family side had people from Canada, US, Australia and the UK.
On Thursday August 31, 2023, a family meet and greet social event was held at the Luxury Chateau in nearby Fenwick where both families met and gathered for a light evening chill out and introduction of family members.
The following day, Friday September 1, 2023, was the traditional wedding. The traditional wedding took place at the beautiful and luxurious Hender’s Estate right in the winery surrounding area of St. Catherines. The tradition of the wedding was officiated by Haroona Amara and hosted/MCed by The Golden Child. After completing all the customary rites with the calabash and ring, the bride’s dad, Bob Umar, officially pronounced the bride and groom as Mr. & Mrs. Richard Adejumo.
The guests had to return to Hender’s Estate again on Sunday September 3, 2023 for the glamorous “White” wedding. The entire wedding was party from both sides were elegant that Sunday afternoon as the Christian officiating clergy pronounced Martha and Richard as Mr. & Mrs. Richard Adejumo and officially sealed with a kiss.
The evening was transformed into a fancy reception with a dinner and dance at the Chateau Des Charmes. The estate has some fine sprawling vineyards and verdant surroundings.
Mr. & Mrs. Richard Adejumo cut the elegant cake, gave a ball dance plus a wedding party group dance.
Martha got Rich!
