With All My Love: Tomi Olayinka & Soji Adegbenro Wed

BellaNaija.com

Published

 on

On the 7th of January 2012, Tomi Olayinka and Soji Adegbenro said “I Do” at the Archbishop Vining Memorial Church in GRA Lagos, Nigeria. Just two days before, the couple celebrated their traditional engagement alongside friends and family. Tomi and Soji’s traditional engagement was a colourful and festive occasion filled with joy and love!

This was the start of their wonderful wedding festivities which continued at their church ceremony where they were blessed and joined as husband and wife. Tomi was an utterly gorgeous bride in her stunning embellished trumpet silhouette wedding dress by Caroline Castigliano. The groom was at his dapper best in his double-breasted black tuxedo.

Tomi and Soji’s love story began when they met at a friend’s party and after the church blessing, it was time for another party – their wedding reception! The marquee reception venue was  totally madeover with lush flowers and crystal adornments. Everyone had an absolutely great time as they enjoyed Tomi and Soji’s special day.

BN wishes Tomi and Soji a blessed and joyful marriage.

    Awwww, may God bless their marriage immensely.

    Okay, there is just something about big, long, beautiful braids like the girl in pic no. BN068. They add a certain type of touch to your look and they make you beautiful (or maybe it is because I’m rocking the exact same hair, lol).

    Lots of eligible looking bachelors and bachelorettes in the building; whoop, whoop!

    The couple looks really happy and inlove, thank God for their lives.

    • Mariaah

      February 27, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    February 27, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Congrats to you two.
    BUT, na wa oh!…did your wedding IV say “COME LOOKING HOT????”
    EVERYONE in this wedding was hot hot hot hot…I am so freaking jealous.
    And I really liked that the bride wore the full dress for the reception not the regular tube. She looked super classy.
    I really enjoyed viewing these pictures!

    • Blossom

      February 28, 2012 at 2:38 pm

      I so agree with you on that. The first thing I noticed was the decency of the bride’s dress and her bridal train’s outfit; very decent yet classy.
      Tomi, I salute you on your total transformation.
