      This Bella naija you’re dropping in standard why not cool down and get proper pics and post rather than just posting scanty updates you got from instagram

    • nosey

      April 26, 2014 at 5:10 pm

      Shut up jor! They are doing a great job updating us with what they’ve got. Some people just like to complain. If u are not happy with the updates then buy a ticket and go join them in Dubai! Bloody armchair complainer oshi!

      April 26, 2014 at 5:14 pm

      So why are you here? Abeg BN keep updating. If you don’t like it don’t click on the link.By now you should know that the wedding pictures are not out.Don’t know why you’re taking out your frustrations on BN

    • Stephanie

      April 26, 2014 at 5:48 pm

      What’s with the whole complaining. You should be glad that BN is posting pictures for free. This is how BN has always done their wedding pictures. On the day of the wedding pictures from different instagrams are grabbed. Then a couple of weeks after the wedding is when they post full details and pictures of the wedding. If you can’t be patient till then you had better get yourself a jet pack to Dubai.

      BN– thanks for the updates.

      But of cos, someone somewhere must find a fault in every good thing! haba! no one opened this website for you! you read the heading, looked at the pictures and “wished it was you” then had the time to type? really some people just need God to deliver them from unnecessary criticisms. You don’t have to air everything that comes to your mind!

      You can say that again and again. Naija people always too quick to listen to haters all because they are jealous or don’t want any good to come to you before them. I feel her on that one. Listen to and follow your hearts people.

    These two are in love. I feel it.
    Obviously they wanted that private moment. Even if it made a lot of them fly economony ( wondering if economy was made for elephants and not humans).

    About the quote. Yes the society is full of the good bad and ugly
    Which should be a guide for us into knowing what we feed it.
    Wish you all the best out of your marriage.

    While everyone is getting caught.up by the sheer beauty of the bride’s gown,I wish to applaud the beauty of the groom’s outfit. I am often not impressed by MAI but this was bespoke at its best. Pays too that the groom has a very fine torso to carry the cut and fit.

    Ermm Anonymous…. \BN is right. The correct statement is: “the couple is ” . Couple is a compound or collective noun and for that you use a singular verb.

    Eg: You say the family is kind and not the family are kind….
