Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel and his pretty wife, Virna Michel, will be renewing their wedding vows after winning a free prize presented by Stacy Amoateng during a TV show, Restoration.
The couple who have been married for more than a decade, were pleasantly surprised when Amoateng informed them that an all-expense paid celebrity wedding package was waiting for their approval.
During the Saturday episode of the show, Amoateng told the actor: “This is what we’re going to do, you’ve done so well, you’ve been with your wife for so long, you guys have been there for each other so we are giving you a treat.
And with this treat, all you need to do is to provide us a date… And you and Virna can say I do again.”
And to that he replied: “I want a trip to the moon. Honeymoon on the moon.”
The wedding which is being planned by Exclusive Bridals together with Amoateng’s team, will take place at the LaPalm Royal Beach Hotel, Accra, Ghana, and promises to play host to Ghollywood (Ghanaian movie industry) and Nollywood celebrities, as well as family and friends of the couple.
Speaking to her studio audience, Amoateng said she was inspired to make this happen because the love and support the couple show each other is exemplary.
“We need to encourage each other because for most people celebrities don’t have a lasting marriages, it crashes along the line,” she said.
“These two are always at weddings so now we would be coming to your wedding. So we are going to have a celebrity wedding.”
During an exclusive interview with StarrFMonline.com, Amoateng disclosed that the bride’s gown has already been chosen.
“It’s a very beautiful gown,” she said coyly. “But that’s all I’m going to say. We will also be deciding on the menu soon. Music and all those other things that make a great wedding are being carefully selected.”
She added that they would be working with a very tight guest list for the event. “They have a lot of friends and fans but we want to keep this as intimate as possible, so the guest list will cover about 250 people,” she said.
The couple have two daughters, Zara and Kiera Michel.
While Virna, who was seated in the audience on the show was stunned into silence after Amoateng announced the prize, her husband said: “I’m going to stand outside and shout.”
