Feyi and Sanmi

When I saw Feyi's photo on Beauty Cook's (her make-up artist) instagram page, the word that immediately popped to my mind was - stunning!

So imagine my delight when she sent me a link to her beautiful wedding photos captured by an extremely talented wedding photographer Lumi. There really is nothing like the right selection of vendors, from their dreamy reception décor (done by Aquarian Touch) to her flawless make-up, I loved every bit of their wedding.

Wishing Feyi and Sanmi a long married life as beautiful and vibrant as their wedding!

Ifeoma who planned both weddings herself, chose Havilah hall of Events and KFA Events Centre Lekki for her traditional and white weddings respectively which held a day apart.

Ifeoma tells it best in her own words below.
