BN Wedding Glam: The Timi Awoyinka & Deji Ogunnowo Traditional Engagement



Yay! It’s BN Wedding Glam – our special wedding feature focused on wedding guests and our fabulous Nigerian Aso-Ebi tradition.
BN Weddings was at the beautiful traditional engagement ceremony of Timi Awoyinka and her beau Deji Ogunnowo.

The event took place on the 25th of April 2011 at the 10 Degrees Event Centre in Lagos.
With lush earthy orange and brown hues, the couple looked regal and guests looked stunning!

Though this feature is based on wedding guests, we know that BN comments will be filled with “where is the couple” questions, so we have added a sneak peek of Timi and Deji’s traditional engagement ceremony.
The couple will be celebrating their white wedding soon and BN will bring you the complete wedding feature.

BN wishes Timi and Deji a blessed life together filled with lots of love and joy.

      They should always give it to Nigerian when it comes to knowing out to do it best in ceremonies such as this. Nigerians and beautiful people. Proud to be a Nigerian always!

    Very colourful but the author of the article should have written about their story (how they met, etc). Some of us prefer pictures and stories.

      Do you read at all??? This is about the wedding guests! Not the couple but because of people like you BN still showed you the couple yet you still had something to say!!! Aside that the first two guest look fab and when the bride wore blue she looks chic
