BN Weddings – Video: “Dude Where’s My Ring?…On An Eagle!” Naomi & Dayo Wed

Published

We previously shared you Naomi & Dayo‘s pre-wedding video: Click here for the Feature! Now here’s their super creative wedding video by LynksDrivers Productions –  “Dude where’s my ring?” An eagle brought in the couple’s rings. Amazing!

We also have their traditional wedding video – it’s so colourful and heartfelt – mixing their Bamenda and Yoruba cultures – from Cameroon and Nigeria.

Their Love Story
by Dayo
You know, it’s funny — our first date was in 2006, but we only got into a relationship five years later. For a long time, Naomi was like a blinking light: “on” one moment, “off” the next. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why she was popping in and out of my life – why she didn’t want to take the next step, why it seemed like something was holding her back. One day, out of the blue, Naomi sent me a message pleading for me to call her, and she finally revealed why she had been hesitant with me — because I’m not Cameroonian! But I had to ask myself, Why did I tolerate this back-and-forth thing with her when I had never done so with anyone else?

Simple: I realized I was truly in love with Naomi. And this time, this light was going to burn steadier and brighter than ever before.

Traditional Wedding: The first fabric they’re wearing is Atoghu, particular to the North Westerners of Cameroon, before they changed into aso-oke, from the groom’s Yoruba  culture.

    That eagle business is risky oh…my heart would have been
    thumping with fear at the thought of the eagle suddenly deciding to
    forgo it’s training and go on its own flight of fancy…having said
    that, kudos for creativity! Lovely seeing another culture here, the
    colours are just sh’mazing. Happy married life to the gorgeous
    couple!
