The Makeup Artist & Her Man – Ginika & Okey’s Pre-Wedding Shoot

Makeup artist Ginika Rtm Beauty and Makeup Studio and her groom-to-be Okey met in her first year of university, but at the time, a relationship was the furthest thing from her mind.

Five years later they met again and she saw him in a different light. After dating for a while, they knew it was destined, before he popped the question on his birthday, making it their special day.

Enjoy and be inspired!

by Ginika
Okey started asking me out when I was in 100level – my first year at university… He got to know about me through my roommate. At that time my mind was occupied with so much that I had little or no interest in him.Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6587 Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6591Five years down the line, he paid me a visit. I guess that didn’t make any difference with regards to how I felt about him, but he persevered and as time went on, I got to know more about him and we started talking more and more.

I then decided to give him a chance…Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6570 Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6578Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6668Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6663Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_IMG_8139

The Proposal
On the 23rd of March 2015, I organized a birthday party for him, little did I know he wanted to use the opportunity to propose to me. I had invited friends and family to the birthday party. When we were all done eating, he knelt down in the midst of everyone with the most beautiful wedding ring I’ve ever seen and popped the question…Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6376 Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6409 Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6459 Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6472The joy I felt in my heart knew no bounds… I was short of words and only managed to say the words “Yes I will marry you” I really cannot explain how I felt that fateful day.

Here we are today ready to walk down the aisle…???Ginika & Okey_Nigerian Makeup Artist_Pre Wedding Shoot_Lemmy Vedutti_BellaNaijaWeddings 2016_DSC_6500

    Let me be a spoiler this morning. Do you know that it takes 200 pictures of oneself to select 5 good packaging worthy pictures. So i ask myself whatapun to the other 195 pictures. Those 195 pictures to me are the real spontaneous, pre-forming image that should tell a story and not be tucked away. In every picture i see i cant help but think about the ones that did not make the publishing cut. (kermit mode)
    Anyway, Happy Happy to these two, they sure look good together. Ire, Ayo, Alaafia fun yin o

    Cele-Jesha enter with your change o

    All these ‘he used to ask me out but I wasn’t ready’ stories ? Maybe because he’s a boring good guy then when you’re ready to settle you’ll just accept like that. Beautiful bride to be ?
