BN Wedding Glam: The Lamide Lawson & Wale Shonekan Engagement



BN Wedding Glam is here again and its definitely been worth the wait! We have to confess that this just might be our fave so far. Its from the traditional engagement ceremony of Lamide Lawson and Wale Shonekan which took place over the weekend. The colours were silver and red. The silver french lace really perfectly complements the red tones of the lining and gele – it even creates a vibrant coral hue when combined! There was lots of creative use of layering and infusion of asian, indian and western influence with African styles.

    Beautiful color combo, some really nice ones I’ll give a 10 but for the most part, kind of overdone for me. Ahah wetin??? I wonder what the heck the bride was wearing then. Nigerian women don’t really know how to ‘simply’ nail it. Mostly over the top oppressive effort. To even think most of these chics are possibly in my age group makes it an even bigger turn off.
    Good picture quality B.!

  45. jbaby

    October 23, 2009 at 10:06 pm

  46. nono

    October 24, 2009 at 1:41 am

    Well that is because this is Wedding Glam which focuses on what the guests wore. There is usually a different feature on the couple.

    Overdoing it as usual. “Lagos society” women need a Joan Rivers to deal with them.

  70. rahyma

    April 12, 2011 at 4:17 am

    very nice color mix..but..nigerians always try to hard in fashion dey have no idea of economy of design…the simple ones look more elegant expecially wen the fabric itself is busy.
