WEST Bromwich Albion player and Â Nigerian Super Eagle PlayerÂ Peter OsazeÂ Odemwingie had to take a few digs from his Manchester City FC supporting father-in-law during a speech when he tied the knot with girlfriend Sarah FallonÂ this passed weekend.Â The 30-year-old striker was said to have taken the friendly banter in good spirits during the speeches at the starâ€™s wedding to fiancÃ© Sarah Fallon.
Sarahâ€™s sister Emma, 21, who was maid of honour at the wedding, said,Â â€œDadâ€™s a big Man City fan and must have mentioned the club about 10 times in his father of the bride speech..â€
Around 250 guests attended the service, held at a small church in the grounds of Castle Ashby in Northampton on Saturday.
â€œThe service was beautiful, Pete and Sarah both shed a tear, it was very emotional,â€ added Emma.
The ceremony was followed by a four-course wedding breakfast then â€œnightclub-styleâ€ entertainment with British Multi Award Wining Â DJ Lekan Kamson in a marquee in the grounds of the castle.
Emma, who would not reveal the cost of the wedding, said: â€œIt was lavish in that Sarah and Pete were able to chose the best of what they wanted, but it was by no means over the top or your typical WAG wedding.â€Â
â€œSarahâ€™s dress was beautiful and the marquee was dressed all in white with candles floating in bowls on the tables and white flowers everywhere.â€
An insider said Sarah, 22, who originally hails from Alvechurch in Worcestershire, was the perfect match for Odemwingie , who she has been dating for two years.
