Igbo Traditional Wedding Guide

A typical Igbo traditional wedding has two different ceremonies:

Taiwo and Dotun's Fairytale Wedding

Over the weekend Taiwo, D'Banj's younger sister got married to Cool FM OAP Dotun Ojuolape.

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!

Compiling the Wedding Guest List

Whenever I think about the wedding guest List, in fact whenever I think about any ‘by invitation only’ guest list, I’m always reminded of the story of Sleeping Beauty, whose parents omitted to invite Maleficent the evil fairy to her christening, who in retaliation cursed the baby causing all manner of problems for the young girl and the Kingdom going forward. The story serves to remind me that when guest list are drawn one must ensure that those invited will attend with the best sentiments; familial repercussions must be borne in mind where family members are concerned.

An Efik and Itsekiri Union: Ifeoma and Kelly Emiko

The intense whirlwind that lasted for ten months and swept them off their feet, didn't stop until Mr and Mrs Emiko tied the knot recently at a colourful ceremony in Lagos. The couple who started dating three months after they met, were a mere four months into their relationship when Kelly proposed. 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.

Sugar Weddings:

Jummai and Chris's Traditional Wedding

There was instant chemistry when Jummai met Chris for the very first time. It was at the launch of the Sugar Weddings website which took place at Federal Palace on the 24th of October, 2008. The duo quickly became an official couple a few months later.

Fast-forward four years later, Chris popped the question when he whisked Jummai away on a romantic getaway to Turkey and London, wedding plans quickly went underway and the traditional wedding date was set for April 2013.
