On the 22nd of November 2012, Faith and Kenny celebrated their traditional wedding at the Civic Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos. In what can simply be described as an elegant celebration of love, tradition and culture. The couple’s family and friends feted Faith and Kenny’s union in style. Amid a sea of guests dressed in pink, black, fuchsia and blue, Kenny stood tall in his cream traditional attire paired with a chiefly red cap while Faith dazzled in her gold george and blouse accessorized with an ornate coral statement necklace. It was a wonderful day!
Faith and Kenny’s big day was grand! From the start of the day’s festivities during the church service at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Victoria Island, it was clear that it was going to be a blessed day. The bride Faith was stunning in her lace dress with a sheer venice lace sabrina neckline, pleated satin cummerbund and chapel length train. The bride completed her look with beautiful multi-pearl drop earrings, a cathedral length lace-edged veil and a bouquet of lush cream roses. Faith’s bridal look was captivating in its simplicity and royal flair. The groom Kenny made a style statement in his white tuxedo paired with a black bow-tie.
After they said “I Do“, the couple, their parents, family, bridal train in vibrant red and friends made the move to the reception venue which had been transformed into a serene space with golden hues, rich cream roses and lights which created a starry night effect. The couple along with their friends savoured all the moments including a performance by Nigerian music legend Onyeka Onwenu as she serenaded the newlyweds! Such a lovely day.
BN wishes Faith & Kenny a blessed, favoured and wonderful life together.
