It’s not that difficult to spot a wedding addict!

  • We (oh I mean they!) – scour the internet for wedding websites
  • They have the Bella Naija Weddings page bookmarked

YesideJibola_DSC_1000-65.previewYeside and Jibola Laguda
A meeting at a mutual friends’ house in Lagos, swiftly followed by a proposal late last year led to the delightful union of Yeside and Jibola Laguda. The engagement ceremony was held at the University of Lagos events hall on the 30th of July, 2009 while the blissful reception was celebrated on the 2nd of August, 2009 at the KFA Events Centre, Lagos.

The bride, a Lagos based fashion designer and her entire bridal train looked stunning in designs by her label, MyQ. The reception marquee was splashed with shades of gold, blue and white a perfect blend with outfits worn by the entire wedding party. The food was marvellous, the drinks kept flowing and the music kept guests on their feet late into the night. For the full wedding scoop, head over to SUGAR WEDDINGS

A chance meeting at a party three years ago between Damola and Debisi ended up in a wedding celebration filled with a lot of joy and love. The two day celebration started with the traditional wedding (engagement) held at All Seasons Plaza, Ikeja where both families glowed in colourful aso-ebi combinations of green, gold and baby pink. The festivities continued with the church ceremony at Hoares Memorial, Yaba and ended with a bang as guests danced non-stop to the DJ at the reception which took place at Adrao International School, VI.

Love knew no time or place for Mimi & Mohammed. They met each other over a decade ago at A-level school in England. However, the sparks didn’t start flying just yet, it took a friendship that spanned years, lasted across continents and, gradually blossomed into full blown love for each other. On an early Tuesday morning, Mohammed showed up at Mimi’s door in his full army regalia, one knee on the floor with an engagement ring in hand. The rest as they say is history.

Their elegant reception was held at the Yar Adua center in Abuja. Colours of the day were gold, silver, and white from the brides side and, fuschia and green from the grooms. With combined ancestries of Efik, Fulani, Igbo and Hausa from the couple, their celebration of love was truly a melting pot of cultures. Starting with the nikkai which took place in Yola (pictures not included) and ending with an Efik ‘coming of age’ ceremony hosted by the bride’s family. Theirs was truly one to remember.
