The team including CNN’s Christian Purefoy followed the planning journey for Olawunmi Taiwo and Taiwo Olashore‘s beautiful wedding. The royal wedding (the groom’s dad is an Oba) was planned by event planner extraordinaire, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe of Zapphire Events. Zapphire’s sister company, Furtullah did the decor for both the traditional and white wedding.
Banke Meshida-Lawal of BM Pro was also featured in the report as she did the bride’s makeup for both occasions. Aso-Ebi by Adeyinka Osilesi and the cakes for both occasions by Omotayo Adeniji of Buttercup. The venue for both ceremonies was HarbourPoint in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Sometimes when the international media reports on US, they totally miss the mark. We are so happy that the world got to see a positive representation of one of our most beloved ceremonies – a beautiful Nigerian wedding.
