BN Bridal: The “Aspire” Collection by Love, Tims from I Do Weddings




Happy New Month! To celebrate all things fresh and new we have the amazing “Aspire” collection from designer and wedding coordinator Timi Ejiwunmi of Love, Tims. The bridal line is called “Love, Tims” because each dress is a well conceptualized labour of love. Basically a love letter to each bride – signed off with Love by Tims (Timi’s nickname). The line is part of Timi’s wedding solutions company – I Do Weddings –  providing wedding planning and on site coordination.

The Nigerian bridal label started this year, in 2013, and has been consistently making waves – the dresses and accessories have been worn by BN brides and celebrity bride Annie Idibia in her destination wedding in Dubai. The line includes bridal accessories such stunning veils, bridal sashes/belts and much more. Love, Tims is also caters for the Nigerian bride by offering an array of options including boleros, cap sleeves and illusion sleeves.

BN Bridal brought you her first collection, and we hope you enjoy this one. We love how the dresses have evolved – different silhouettes and necklines, all elegant, beautifully tailored and sweet. In this collection, each dress has its unique name and personality, to suit yours for your special day. Our favourite is split between Gabriella and Mary Anne. It’s just sooo hard to choose!

There are even more dresses which weren’t featured in this shoot. You can go in store to try them on and they will be in the next Love, Tims look book.

Enjoy – xoxo

Gabriella: She is flamboyant, confident, fashionable and fabulous. A princess without being so in the traditional sense.

Joy: She’s romantic, soft, demure and conservative. She believes a bride should remain covered and leave more to the imagination so she opts for the illusion look.

    Some of the dresses look like Pronovias knock offs

    • Wow

      Ha! That’s what I thought when I saw the first dress. It looks so much like Pronovias or San Patrick. But it’s still absolutely beautiful. I guess bridal dresses look alike a lot.

    As a number of the dresses are blending in with the white background, it’s hard to see any detail. I mean what exactly am I expected to see here

    I blame the photographer! He should have known better than to snap white dresses against a white background. Am sure these dresses are fine but I think they need to get models the dresses actually fit. We’ll love the dresses better am sure.

      honestly that is what i thought. The white background plus the fact that there was soo much light didnt allow us really see the detailing of the dress and really appreciate the garments. It sucks because it looks like the dresses are really well tailored but the style of photography prevents us from appreciating it.

      I think they were going for the Pronovias effect, only Pronovia uses light airy spaces as opposed to blocked white spaces to show off the beauty of their dresses.

      That said, I think the dresses are nice though they didn’t exactly sit well on the model. Well done Tims.

    Is it me or the dresses are not well fitted on the model at all!? What is this?

  11. nkoyoewai

    The dresses doesn’t FIT the model and the background…not liking at all.*yawn*

  12. Wow

    While the scenery is absolutely gorgeous! I doubt that it did the dresses justice. Bridal dresses aren’t meant to be shot against such bright background so as to highlight the dress details.
    I LOVE alakija studios but I’m not too sure about this one. If this was an actual wedding bridal portrait shoot, then he would have nailed it but since it’s to showcase wedding dresses, it doesn’t do much for those dresses.

    I am sure these dresses are actually prettier than this but thanks to the excessive light, white background and poor fit on the model, they just look bleh!

    Alakija took these pics? doesnt do the dresses justice….at all.
