The newly married Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic, has explained how the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) visa ban almost deprived her of her wedding dress.
The thespian married Fidelis Anosike in a star-studded white wedding in Yorkshire, the United Kingdom, last Saturday.
In a post on her Instagram page on Tuesday, the 47-year-old recalled how the UAE ban nearly ruined the wedding, but her designer, Michael Nardi, went the extra mile and ensured the event was a success.
The UAE authorities in October suspended the issuance of visa to Nigerians and citizens of 19 other countries.
“Thank God for a beautiful weekend full of love and joy. Thank you to @micheal5inco for making my dream wedding gown.

She also thanked her “dream team” for making her to look stunning for the day.
