BN Wedding Glam: The Dakore Egbuson & Olumide Akande Wedding



BN Wedding Glam is a feature from Bella Naija Weddings focused on the wedding guests.
We have many exciting wedding features planned for January 2011…lets go!

The beautiful wedding of Dakore Egbuson and Olumide Akande took place this past weekend, on Sunday 16th January 2011.
The couple chose clementine orange and gold as the vibrant colours for their wedding celebration. Olumide and Dakore’s traditional wedding and white wedding took place on the same day so guests were able to wear their aso-ebi for both wedding celebrations.

All the guests looked absolutely gorgeous – from the older generation in their elegent iro and buba to the yummy mummies in the Niger Delta style – 2 wrapper in honour of the bride’s Ijaw Bayelsa culture to the young fashionistas and fashionistos in their contemporary outfits.
Definitely lots of style eye candy!

BN will be bringing you an absolutely beautiful perspective of Dakore & Olumide Akande’s wedding soon. In case you missed it, click HERE to see our article on the wedding, expect the feature soon!

    hahahah I love the way everyone has really noticed Monalisa, I have been seriously been praying for her because i really couldn’t understand why her hair would be a hot mess every single time, especially that style that she would braid half and put beads at the end, for a nollywood star smh but this time around she has killed it!!! hair, dress everything is just on point! She has always been beautiful, and her skin…. lets not just go there, gorgeous is understatement! Others look very lovely, Stella is my babe any day she looks beautiful! Nice combinations 😀
