A Nigerian woman, Sandra Igwe, who wanted ‘the perfect wedding’ has been described as ‘Britain’s biggest bridezilla’.  Sandra had five different wedding ceremonies during which she wore 13 dresses and spent £70,000 in total.

In her chat with the hosts of This Morning,Sandra shared how no one could stand in the way of her dream day.

The first of her weddings, which held in Nigeria, cost £2500 and her friends and family were forced to save up to be able to afford the flight as Sandra insisted on having everyone watch her get married in her father’s village.

Her husband’s friend had to take out a loan that he is still paying back.

“I wanted my best friends there, I wanted my family there, I wanted everyone there to celebrate an amazing day of my life and I wanted them to come to the village. I wanted them to be involved, and yes obviously money was a factor.”

Sandra, who doesn’t feel guilty at the extent people had to go to attend her wedding said,

“I think that if you care about somebody and if you love them, then why wouldn’t you be there for such a significant moment in their entire life. No, I don’t feel guilty, I would do the same. I have done the same, so yeah I think it is completely fine.”

At her second wedding, which took place at a grand hotel in Lagos, Sandra kicked out her friends who were invited into her room by her mum.

“I think when you are getting married you want your space sometimes. When I was getting ready, getting my hair and my make-up done, I wanted the room to myself. So obviously, if I have guests in the room, then I’m going to bring them out. I was pregnant at the time so hormones are flying all over the place and I wanted my space. That’s completely acceptable.”

She also kicked people out of the dance floor so that she and her husband could take the centre stage.

“I’m Nigerian, when you come out into the dance floor, it’s all eyes on you. So yes, I needed the dance floor for myself and also for my husband to dance the night away.”

The event had a colour scheme – blue and silver – and people who did not stick to it were banned from taking photos.

“Some people didn’t stick to the colour theme so I was like you have to stay back. I was a bit irritated because your wedding pictures you want to look back and it has to be perfect. Anybody that kind of disrupts that perfect day should be booted.”

Her third wedding event took place on the beach and she almost had a fight with the videographer, who said she was teaching her his job.

“The videographer said I’m doing his job for him because I kept telling him how I wanted the shot and that’s fine I think. My wedding pictures from the beach are in my living room and I’m so proud of them because I basically directed the videographer by the way I wanted the water to be and the background.”

For her fourth wedding, Sandra insisted that her close friends and family attend a private ceremony at a registry office and was angry with those who couldn’t attend.

Her fifth and final wedding took place at an expensive hotel in London, where she had 13 bridesmaids and wore two dresses. At the final wedding, she kept guests waiting for  four hours and made them learn a dance to perform on the night, which ended up being cancelled due to her delay.

She also forced her sister to wear heels for the entire event, even though she pleaded not to.

“She wanted to wear flats. I wanted everyone to wear the same colour heels, the same style and I think if one heel looks out of place it’s going to ruin the look so I begged my beautiful sister to please wear heels.”

Sandra explained that she fell out with quite ‘a few’ people.

“Disagreements on the day, (I had) too many. But afterwards we hashed things out with a few”
