Plastic wedding rings used in Nottingham sham marriages
News from BBC News:

Phillips Onikoyi made thousands of pounds out of the fake marriages scam

Couples involved in fake marriages in Nottingham did not speak the same language and wore plastic wedding rings.

On one occasion Phillips Onikoyi, who has been jailed for organising at least 16 sham marriages over two years, took pictures of two people in Nottingham’s Old Market Square to make them look like a happy couple.

He also provided “one size fits all” clothing to wear during the weddings.

The scam allowed Nigerians to stay in the UK because they had married a European with residence rights.

Onikoyi found Nigerians fake marriage partners who were entitled to live in the UK.

Organised crime

They were all Dutch nationals and many originally came from the Dutch Antilles in the Caribbean.

Andy Ratcliffe, from the UK Border Agency, said: “They were flying over for 24 hours, basically overnight, and then going back to Holland.

“After the wedding they would never come back to the UK.”

Onikoyi introduced the couples to the vicar and was usually present when the marriages took place……………. continues on BBC News

How 5 Wedding Planners Would Improve Corporate Events
News from BizBash:

1. Prioritize personalized details.
“Weddings are all about highlighting the things the couple loves,” says Mindy Weiss in Los Angeles. “I think corporate events focus more on the bigger picture, and sometimes the details fall by the wayside. However, it’s the little things that guests remember—a place setting with a customized name card for each guest, or a specialty cocktail that plays on the company’s name.”

2. Keep up appearances.
“For weddings, I always bring a huge emergency kit,” says Antonia Christianson of Antonia Christianson Events in Virginia Beach, Virginia. “It has everything, including hairspray, safety pins, stain wipes, breath mints, and a hot glue gun. At corporate events, people want to look their best when networking, too. Being prepared for any unexpected mishap, such as wine on a speaker’s shirt, is key.”

3. Don’t forgo the printed invitation.
“Corporate events often skip printed invites in favor of a digital invite, but an invitation is the first impression,” says Carolyn Chen of

Brides-to-be being ripped off ahead of their big day
News from The Hankyoreh:

By Yu Sun-hui


32-year-old bride-to-be Lee Hye-yeong, who is getting married in April, recently had an awkward experience during pre-wedding photo shoot. Studio sessions normally involve taking at least 100 shots initially, after which the couple chooses 20-30 of their favorites editing and the production of an album. The studio, however, demanded that Lee spend 200,000 won each on two CDs containing both the original and the edited photos. “The studio kept on insisting, saying, ‘If you buy the originals together with the edited shots you can have a 100,000 won discount and get both CDs for 300,000 won ($ 268)’,” said Lee. “Putting my photos on a CD and demanding an extra 300,000 won was absurd, but I couldn’t give up photos full of memories because of money, so I just paid.”

Brides-to-be are frequently left fuming because of demands for “additional costs” in the process of preparing their weddings. Most women reserve studio shoots, dress choosing and bridal makeup as a single package, but companies are burdening them with all kinds of additional costs on top of the agreed upon price.

A 30-year-old woman by the name of Jeong, who got married last December, is indignant as she recalls being charged 30,000-50,000 under the guise of a “fitting fee” by every dress shop where she tried on a dress while choosing one for her wedding. “It was absurd, but I di…………… continues on The Hankyoreh
