Love is blind as it doesn’t care about race, color or culture. All it cares about is two people bounded by something stronger than the colour of their skin or culture or even the country they are from and this is exactly what International or transnational marriages entails.
International marriages brings about quite some interesting things, starting with an opportunity to learn about an entire new culture, language and traditions, to having adorable bilingual children who know both their father and mother languages, as well their traditions.
International or transnational marriages are very rare to come across as often times people let their colour of skin, cultural background and even religion dictate who get to love. Some people don’t let all these things dictate who they love and that was just the case of South-korean Suzy Shin and Nigerian Prince Obinna Ogbuji, who defiled all odds to take their love a step further by getting married.
Obinna and Suzy started their love story in South Korea where they met and eventually said their marriage vows on the 13th of August 2016. Obinna and Suzy had said their wedding vows in two beautiful and lovely events, the traditional Korean wedding and a white church wedding. The couple went for the traditional Korean Hanbok.
For their traditional while, Suzy Shin went for a jeogori (short jacket with long sleeves) with two long ribbons and a Chima (a full-length, high-waisted, wrap-around skirt) with a boat-shaped shoes made of silk with white cotton socks and a knotted headgear called Norigae, while Obinna wore a gwanbok (a jacket and trousers and an overcoat) with a black headgear.
For their church wedding, Suzy was dressed in strapless Empire white wedding dress while Obinna was a dapper groom in black tux with white shirt.
