Hey guys, how are you all?
This past weekend I was so honoured to attend the wedding of my secondary school friend – a wonderful young woman with a heart for God, who I have watched mature literally from a school girl into a WIFE!
I remember our first few encounters, she was what you might call a “joker” and there was never a dull moment with her. So it brings me so much joy to see her truly happy and to be part of a beautiful day that she will remember for the rest of her life.
Feyikemi & Seun – God bless your union! I pray your marriage is a fruitful ministry in which you both grow to love and understand each other more daily. Amen!
Today’s post is actually about outfits. Many Nigerian weddings have at least two components – the “traditional wedding” and a more formal/official wedding ceremony (followed by a reception). So yes, we get to slayyy twice.
Both of my outfits were made by the very talented – Teni! As you will see below, her handiwork is amazing and I’m so happy with how everything turned out. She perfectly captured my vision of a comfortable traditional outfit which I can reuse in multiple ways, and a classic but modest long dress for the wedding itself. If you’re looking for a tailor based in London, Teni’s contact details will be listed below. Tell her I sent you 😉
Here are some pictures:
