Porsha Williams Wore 7 seeks two-day marriage to Simon Guobadia

  • Reality TV star Porsha Williams, 41, married Nigerian businessman Simon Guobadia, 57, in a two-part celebration.
  • The couple held a traditional Nigerian ceremony on Friday followed by the American ceremony on Saturday.
  • Williams donned seven different wedding looks throughout the two-day “fashion show.”

‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Porsha Williams married businessman Simon Guobadia in two ceremonies Friday and Saturday in Atlanta, Georgia.

Williams wore three looks for the traditional Nigerian ceremony on Friday and four looks for the American ceremony on Saturday. She shared the exclusive photos taken by photographer Stanley Babb with People.

“It’s going to be a real fashion extravaganza,” Williams told People. “I just couldn’t turn down a dress! If a wedding dress came my way and I loved it, I had it.”

On Friday, the Real Housewife wore a red velvet dress with feathers for the traditional Nigerian ceremony. The dress was designed by Lakimmy, according to People. The ensemble was customary for an Edo bride, as Guobadia hails from Benin City in Edo State in Nigeria.

She also wore a helmet called an okuku which featured Benin coral beads.

According to People, Williams then changed into a royal blue dress and a gold dress, both designed by Tabik.

Williams also told People that guests at Friday’s ceremony were asked to wear traditional purple and teal Nigerian wedding attire. In keeping with Nigerian tradition, Williams and Guobadia provided the cultural fabric to make outfits for their family members, according to the outlet.

“It was a massive undertaking,” Williams told People. “I personally chose the fabrics they’re going to wear, including their headband, their jelly. I chose all the colors, everything. I should be a stylist after that!”

Guests included cast members from other “Housewives” franchises and former Williams costars: Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Monyetta Shaw, Kandi Burruss, Drew Sidora and Cynthia Bailey, according to People.

After the church ceremony, Williams changed into a sparkling cream-colored Albina Dyla dress for the reception, according to People. The bride posed with the gown’s sparkly details and plunging neckline. The jeweled dress was topped with a crown and a shimmering veil.

Williams told People her wedding cake was so tall she needed a “sword” to cut it and admitted she did everything for the celebration. “If extra was a bride, it would be me,” she told People. “I promise you I didn’t know I was that extra.”

According to People, Williams changed twice throughout the reception. Once before the bouquet toss and again before the after-party.

“I was like, ‘Why not? This is my last wedding forever,'” she told the outlet.
