Rita Dominic, the ace Nollywood actress, has recounted how the visa ban by United Arab Emirates (UAE) almost ruined her wedding.

The UAE immigration authorities had in October banned visa applications to 20 African countries including Nigeria.

In an appreciation post on Instagram on Tuesday, the movie star narrated how the distance between herself and her cloth designer almost affected the event.

It is believed that the fashion designer resides in Dubai.

Dominic also appreciated the gown designer for “going above and beyond” to get the dress to her despite the ban.

“Thank God for a beautiful weekend full of love and joy. Thank you to @michael5inco for making my dream wedding gown. It was a lot of hard work and patience since we were in two different countries,” she wrote.

“The UAE ban almost ruined it all but designer @michael_nardi_ who you see in this video came to the rescue by going and above and beyond to make the necessary alterations and final fittings. So huge hugs to both.

“Thank you to my dream team who worked hard to get me looking good in this gown. Love you all from the bottom of my heart.”
