Unknown in the West, Ghanaian rapper Trigmatic (born Nana Yaw Oduro-Agyei) is a huge star in his native country, and on Saturday, March 25, 2017 he married his longtime love, Dita Schandorf, at a private estate on Saxel Street in Tesano, a suburb of Accra, Ghana.

The groom wore a white tuxedo jacket with black pants and vest from Maison Hardman for the outdoor ceremony, while the bride eschewed a wedding dress, and instead wore a white jumpsuit from Ghanaian dressmakers She by Bena. She accessorized with a floral jewelled headband and white cape instead of veil. Her bridesmaides wore blush tulle, accessorizing with jewelled headbands to mimic the bride’s. The couple also shared a photo of themselves in traditional wedding attire, which was an important part of their union.

(And though they couldn’t have planned it, half a world away in Palm Springs, another celebrity bride was walking down the aisle in a designer jumpsuit and cape of her own that same day – when Lauren Morelli wore Cristian Siriano to wed actress Samira Wiley.)

At the reception, guests dined outside at white and gold wood tables and chairs, draped in fabric, under a white canopy with bamboo trellises. Decor was done by Mask Events. OneFotos Digital Photography captured everything from the sobbing bride and groom at the altar, to the tiered wedding cake with intricate frosting in keeping with the wedding’s shades of white, brown, and gold.

The guestlist was a who’s who of Ghanaian celebrity, befitting one of its biggest stars and his philanthropic new wife. First gaining fame as a fashion blogger, Schandorf founded Blooming Africa, a social enterprise that uses transparent crowdfunding to help people raise funds for community and social projects, in January 2015.
