It was all pomp and pageantry as Jos homeboy Dongjap Cajetan Tapgun walked his heartthrob Ashley Jiritmwa Dimka down the aisle on the 15th day of December, 2018.
The cool city of Jos stood still for the son of the former governor of Plateau state Ambassador Fidelis Tapgun and the daughter of Comptroller of Customs- Victor David Dimka as families, friends and well-wishers, accompanied the couple to formalize and solemnize their relationship at Saint Finbarr’s Catholic Church Rayfield, Jos.
Dongjap Tapgun who holds a master’s degree from the University of Bath and presently works with the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), was all smiles and highly elated on his wedding day.
While the bride, who is also a master’s degree holder from Kings College London was all emotional and teary all through the event. She is involved with children charities as part of her love for philanthropy with her establishing the “You make a difference foundation”. She is also into strawberry farming.
The couple met in 2017 and just “clicked”, in the groom’s words, “it was love, best friendship, deep concern, feelings and all the mushy things that make you stay awake smiling at night.” Dongjap remembers joking on the first day they met as he told her that “it was either we’d be best friends or get married” and she just laughed. Dongjap gushed about loving everything about his wife. While the bride just kept on talking about her husband’s many qualities.
The wedding was such a lovely affair. The couple shared the day with family, friends, colleagues, business partners from all walks of life. The couple and their friends danced late into the night at the after party which continued immediately after the reception.
We wish the couple a happy, blissful, blessed and fruitful marriage.
Happy married life to the Tapguns!!!
