Blogger Wedding - Uche Eze of Bella Naija Marries Bode Pedro

Posted in: , ,

Some will say popular blogger Uche Eze of Bella Naija Fame is a celebrity, others may just say she's a business woman, albeit an internet entrepreneur. What will not be in doubt is that she is very well known in the online and blogging circles as being an inspiration for a lot of bloggers who have chosen and been able to make money from their blogs. Myself included.

One of the blogs I visit once put up a post about her engagement last year and since then not much had been heard until published photos of her traditional wedding a few weeks ago. Uche is married to Bode Adegboyega Pedro, the eldest son of the former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Chief Femi Pedro. Because of this, many expected a society wedding with lots of press and attendant crowds. What we have is a surprisingly low-key wedding with little press.

Finding the pictures made me think about the blogging life, balancing the public and the private. The line between being a blogger and having a private life can be a fine one, especially when you have someone else, like your spouse, to consider. I really don't have much qualms about sharing some of my photos here, but when it comes to more personal stuff, I still worry about where to draw the line.

So, I was very impressed and partly awed at how Uche Eze and Bode Pedro were able to fly under the radar and pull off this well planned and attended but quiet celebrity wedding. It just goes to show that a couple may have more control over their wedding that they realise sometimes. And whether it is a small wedding you desire, or one with little fuss, you may be able to achieve it. I wish Uche and Bode a happy married life.

  8. That's awesome... Somethings are just not meant to be bigger than life... and having such memories all to onesself make them even more special and intimate.

  9. Class is the word. That girl has never made herself the news unlike some of these celebrity hogs. Look at Ono bello.. never heard of her until I saw advertising herself on television and she sounded so shallow. Advertsing a blog before you have put in the work.. utter rubbish

    Congratulations to them both!
    They are a beautiful couple and I wish them happiness and peace.

  11. Congratulations for them!
    My wishes for happiness and good health for them!

  12. Congratulations guys :D
    How I wish your marriage will last forever..

  13. How can you say 'how you wish their marriage will last forever'? It is horrible of you to say such. Even if you ain't happy for them, u do not have to say anything...bad belle ashi

  14. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

    Review my blog post; maximum shred review

  15. Wish you a happy and perfect life. You both look beautiful together.
