Two Sisters Gets Married The Same Day In Igboland. by durubrian(m): 3:52pm On Apr 05
History made!


3rd of April, 2021 was a memorable one in Igboland as two sisters got married same day.

Sylvia Ifeoma Duru and her sister Chidinma Duru (indeed ife di nma mere to show that Chi ha Dinma), had their Igba Nkwu the exact same day after the whole idea of sharing the Traditional wedding day started off as a mission impossible.

Both sisters got engaged by their partners in the first quarter of 2021.
The Big sister Ifeoma's partner is Michael Uchenna Ebirim from inyishi, Ikeduru LGA, Imo State, Nigeria.
Chidinma's partner is Endurance Aigbe from Uselu, Benin city, Edo State, Nigeria.

However they had their different themes, SiMi'21 & ChEddy'21

Both grooms were seen smiling throughout the occasion.
Well, they are justified, he who finds a beautiful Igbo wife, finds a good thing.



Mrs Austa Duru (mother of the brides) said,

" I am the happiest mother on earth right now, I am double crowned."

"we initially wanted to separate the weddings but since my princesses wanted it this way coupled with the fact that the my son-in-laws also concurred to it, we had to make it happen. It's their big day and their happiness is priority."



Although they bought and designed (TransmogrIFY) their dresses the same day, the sisters wore the same famous isi Agu (isi Odum) but different styles and colours - with IFEOMA wearing the black variant matching her husband's while CHIDINMA wore the wine variant.





The brides


The grooms.

The grooms performed the traditional rites (ime ego et al) one after the other, inline with the Igbo culture in Pius Duru's house then proceeded to the complete the Igba Ukwu in the
Sun-soaked grounds of Pius Duru's compound, Umuelele, Umuaghobe, (formerly Isikeneisi) in ideato South LGA, Imo State, Nigeria.


They cut their custom-made traditional wedding cake, offered palm wine to their husbands and even shared their first dance together.

"Despite the difficulty in coordinating two weddings the same day, I would recommend this as it was the fun-filled and the guests were well catered for, my sisters were besties and it was a double celebration, kudos to my kinsmen for the support they rendered, I didn't anticipate that it was going to be this big". said Onyi (brother of the brides).

Due to the pandemic, the wedding was a "family vibe", with less than 200 people in attendance.

Happy married life from all of us!
