The First Couple were in attendance when the granddaughter of the late Opoku Ware II, Emily Owusu-Nyantekyi, tied the knot with her fiancé, Mr. Kwadwo Amponsah, in a plush ceremony held in Accra.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo turned up in a tan suit with brown shoes to match, while First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo also wore a shiny long dress in the footage sighted by GhanaWeb.

Although simple, the plush ceremony took social media by storm.

Videos that made the rounds on the internet, showed that the event exuded class, style, opulence, and royalty.

In one of the videos, the president's vehicle with the Coat of Arms and the Ghana flag pulls up as the first couple makes their way into the church. At one point, the president is seen exchanging pleasantries as he departs.

Then there is also a video where First Lady Rebecca is seen at the reception helping the couple and their parents cut the cake, after which she hugs the bride.

Aside the First Couple, the event pooled together the crème de la crème of society relative to politics, royalty and diplomacy with first lady of the Ashanti kingdom, Otumfuo-Yere Julia Osei Tutu, diplomats, royals in attendance.

The wedding was said to have started off with a church service at the magnificent Holy Spirit Cathedral in Accra and a high-octave reception at the plush Kempinski Hotel.

The Adlon ballroom of the hotel, where the reception was held, witnessed a huge transformation from an extravagant décor that turned heads on social media.

It can be recalled that weeks before the white wedding, a colourful traditional engagement ceremony took place in Kumasi, Ashanti Region.

The bride is said to be a lawyer and an economist; however, little is known of the groom.
