What is destined to be will eventually be and it often doesn't matter how long it takes. Many people thought Augustina Nwatoka had given up on love and this was due to the fact that she was in her 60s and unmarried.
However, the elderly woman shocked many people when she recently wed her heartthrob at the St Theresa's Catholic Church in Enugu. Briefly.co.za gathered that she got married to a businessman who had lost his wife a few years ago.
A relative of the Nwatoka, Nneka Isaac Moses, took to the Facebook platform to share the news with photos from the beautiful ceremony.
While Nwatoka dressed in a white wedding gown with flowers, her groom wore lilac native attire.
Nneka's post reads: "She's in her 60's and got married just yesterday for the very first time! Yes!! Isaac and I had to dash back to the village in Anambra state to witness the most beautiful wedding of this century! Aunt Nwatoka had never been married all her life. She's Isaac's aunt from his father's side and one of the best aunt-in-law you can wish for.
"I was personally surprised but pleasantly so when a handsome Enugukwu man Mr Okeke decided to take her hand in marriage. Aunt Nwatoka as she's fondly called was literally swept off her feet. And just yesterday he wedded her at St. Theresa's Catholic Church in Enugukwu, Anambra State. Mr Okeke is a Lagos businessman while his new bride works in Anambra. Having found happiness, the groom who lost his first wife many years ago is giving himself another chance "
