BN Wedding Glam: The Funke Ogunde & Ayotunde Adepoju Traditional Engagement

BN Wedding Glam is here with so much loveliness that whatever Monday Blues you might have been feeling will be wiped away with immediate effect!

Funke Ogunde of Nigerian design brand, Phunk Afrique and her beau, business executive Ayotunde Adepoju celebrated her traditional engagement just a few hours ago on Sunday 16th September 2012 at the Landmark Village Events Centre in Lagos, Nigeria.

Our BN Wedding Glam cam was on the scene and we have to say that the aso ebi designs we spotted at the event were so fabulous! The blue and orange colours provided dramatic contrast while the lace infused a luxe effect into the looks.

The bride Funke looked so stunning in her resplendent orange aso oke paired with a gold lace blouse and showed off her fashionista credentials by adding a gorgeous red beaded necklace while the groom Ayotunde matched his bride in his orange aso oke agbada and fila.

Banke Meshida-Lawal of BM|Pro was the bride’s makeup artist, click here visit the BM|Pro blog and see the beauty shots.

    Praise the Lord!!! I found my husband(doing my praise down). I’m not saying it before all the husband snatchers come again.
    Anyway, this has to be the best aso ebi I’ve seen and all, I mean ALL the ladies rocked it well. Too beautiful. I love how the women look so good and natural. Naija women, keep it up. Let’s finally kill bleaching, having rainbow colors, stepping on it. Beautiful couple too, can’t wait to see their white and trad on the same page.

  • Me andYou September 17, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    wow, women suffer o! See practically every woman here rocking the wedding attire that they would have had to shell out loads to buy, not to mention sew. Gele, lace, etc….meanwhile the guys just rocked up in whatever they felt like/had lying around at home/wore to another wedding…..*sigh* #guys have it so easy

  • Omooba September 18, 2012 at 2:19 am

    Nigerians are just beautiful people

  • chioma September 18, 2012 at 3:02 am


    lol..Sorry, Jide Adenuga is taken by me o. Abi, you wan be the second wife. So, don’t get too excited. Chai, he’s so handsome. This couple is beautiful, love the bride’s neck beads, looks rich. Wow, all the women look GORGEOUS AND FLAWLESS. I don’t usually like lace material but this one is beautiful. The color looks good on black skin. I can always tell Banke’s handiwork, it has that special factor. Wishing the couple the best.
