“Ife Wa Gbona” with Newlyweds Adeola & Wale | Episode 2 of “LoveStruck” by the Wedding Company Nigeria

LoveStruck by the Wedding Company Episode 2 Jide Alakija Photography - BN Weddings - March 2013 - BellaNaija018Ok, everyone at BellaNaija Weddings has been awwing over this photoshoot all day and we just have to share it!
The Wedding Company Nigeria‘s innovative “LoveStruck” photo series started with the “Partners in Crime” shoot. For episode 2, the team has gone in a totally different creative direction!

Read all about it below.
****
For Episode 2 of our Lovestruck photo series, we used gorgeous newlyweds Adeola and Wale (yes, a real couple, we heard you!). At the time of the shoot, they were just one-week away from their wedding, and as the photos clearly demonstrate, the chemistry and sense of fun between these two is absolutely palpable! This engagement shoot was inspired by Tiwa Savage’s ‘Ife Wa Gbona’ music video. We wanted a village feel and a sense of a couple meeting in a secluded area, savouring a few moments away from prying eyes, to revel in their love.

It was such a pleasure working with this couple. They could barely stop laughing and it’s that authenticity that really brought this engagement shoot to life.

Speaking on how he proposed, the ever jovial Wale tells us: “The proposal came at a time when she was on her way to resume for the N.Y.S.C. orientation in Nasarawa State. We were standing on the check-in queue at the MMA 2 and I pulled her out of the queue, knelt down and popped the question while magically conjuring the ring. I could hear people clapping, but it was so distant……of course she said YES

This photoshoot took place at the Lekki Conservation Centre (complete with its ‘Beware of Crocodiles’ signs), where we were able to utilize the rural setting and rustic feel to anchor our vision for the couple. A huge thank you to the fantastically talented photographer – Jide Alakija and happy married life Wale and Deola!

Enjoy the pictures and stay tuned for more themeD shoots from LoveStruck brought to you by The Wedding Company.

I actually thought Wale and Deola was tormenting me on bb with the village picture. I remember making fun of Wale saying he looks like a farmer. But for real this is an original. Guess I’ll take lessons from u guys. Am so happy for you guys and yes they are both madly in love. I can testify to that… Wish ing you guys the very best.
