Popular Nollywood actress Rita Dominic wedded Fidelis Anosike at Selby Abbey, North Yorkshire, England, on Saturday.
The simple yet fancy wedding took place at the abbey, which is believed to be over 900 years old.
Rita’s husband, Fidelis, is the Chairman, Board of Directors, Folio Group, owners of the Daily Times and Miss Nigeria pageant.
On her Bridal train, the 47-year-old actress had TV presenter Michelle Dede as her Chief Maid of Honour, Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw, Vicky Sogunro and Olivia Waturuocha.
Her ladies were all dressed in white outfits, while fellow Nollywood actress Chioma Akpotha was spotted in attendance.

In April, they announced their engagement and on 19 April, 2022, the lovebirds tied the knot traditionally at Rita’s late father’s compound, the home of the traditional ruler of the community, Eze Marcellenus J.O Waturuocha, in Aboh, Mbaise, Imo State.
On her traditional wedding day, Nollywood stars including Chidi Mokeme, Ini Edo, Uche Jombo, Lily Afegbai and more stars were seen dancing excitedly in their hotel rooms as they celebrated their colleague.
