BN Wedding Glam: The Faith Arigbe and Kenny Umenyi Traditional Wedding

The glam quotient at Nigerian traditional engagements and weddings just keeps rising! Faith Arigbe and Kenny Umenyi‘s traditional wedding ceremony took place at the Civic Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos on Thursday 22nd of November 2012. The bride’s chic pick for the Aso Ebi got the BellaNaija Weddings team swooning as the black sequin fabric paired the fuchsia pink velvet wrappers was an inspired choice that created a thoroughly sizzling effect while the groom’s side looked resplendent in yellow and blue.

With the guests looking glamorous, it was no surprise that the bride and groom looked even more dazzling in their traditional looks which showcased hues of gold, champagne and ivory with traditional coral jewellery reimagined for the bride’s statement necklace.

Check out BN Wedding Glam from Faith & Kenny’s special day!

    • Miss Tm November 26, 2012 at 12:22 pm

      Luvlyn the velvet idea isnt a first on bella or in naija. I think sometime in 2010 november or december there was one here. I hope am right as it been awhile. The use of velvet,is however rarely used in naija perhaps because of that peroid where people refered to it as furniture fabric ‘akwa oche’ . Its good to see people use it now.

  • Mike December 1, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    @Be a man, ur boyfriend will not propose cos u have given him everything, his bored, there’s no more thrill or challenge. Men love challenge

    • Tango December 9, 2012 at 10:48 am

      @ Mike, how do you presume to know that @be a man’s boyfriend won’t propose to her because she’s given him everything and he’s bored of her? Do you know her or her boyfriend? Just because the Internet is a relatively anonymous platform doesn’t give you the license to be offensive just because you can? Have some manners man…

  • BukiOni December 1, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    I love the golden tones of the bride’s outfit, she looks gorge and the fuchsia is lovely. Wishing them a very happy married life.
