Onyinye & Olaolu’s Unique Traditional & Outdoor Bahamas Wedding | Gazmadu Photography

Published

 on

Bahamas Wedding

Onyinye & Olaolu met in college, but it was years later after meeting again that they fell in love.

Onyinye loved her proposal in Las Vegas! She says, “The atmosphere was under the midnight sky overlooking the entire city. He slipped the ring into my finger and we ran off to watch a show we had planned for early that day. I forgot to say Yes because we were running late… but I said Yes after the show.”

The couple wore unique attire for their traditional wedding. The bride was adorned in her image of an Igbo queen – her hair was threaded in red and gold, while her face was adorned with beautiful symbols. Onyinye then wore a gold headtie during the igba nkwu (wine carrying ceremony), and Olaolu, a red felt hat, reserved for chiefs in Igbo land. They later changed into black and white aso-oke, to symbolize the groom’s Yoruba heritage.

Their intimate white wedding was a week later on the sunny island country of Bahamas. Onyinye says, “I walked down the aisle with one of my favorite wedding songs playing on the violin. It was a small and intimate wedding. I couldn’t ask for better.”

The couple has short and sweet advice for other couples, “Enjoy the planning but don’t stress out. It’s just a wedding party.”

BN Weddings wishes Onyinye & Olaolu a beautiful married life!

Enjoy & be inspired!

My first outing was just an idea of what I felt an Igbo queen would look like in the olden days. I had a locally threaded hair in black and gold. I was glad it all came together.

    beautiful pair…. lovely and serene wedding. i haven’t actually seen an igbo traditional wedding in a hall its mostly done in open spaces and as a Lagos gal that was posing as an issue as i didn’t want to travel to my villa to do mine(personal). glad i have a sample.

    May God bless your union i also love the merge of both cultures

    Lovely wedding, lovely pictures and such great setting for both the traditional and the white wedding. That trad wedding cake is gorg!
    Hmm…. I see more brides rocking their natural hair. It’s giving me the courage to rock mine as well either in braids or out with some natural hair extensions for bulk.
    Now the white wedding is my kinda wedding- small, intimate, you know everyone and no matter what goes wrong, you can fix it quickly cos you haven’t got a mammoth crowd. Anyway, not going out of the country and I am determined to have no more than 100 guests at my wedding this December so help us God! 😀
    Wish the couple a blessed marriage.

    She completely totally absolutely nailed the Igbo queen look. I really loved that she went all out. Her Igba ukwu totally rocked- I know I wasn’t present but I could totally feel it. I would like something similar- really traditional – dress, food and all including venue and that is why I’m thinking somewhere outside e.g my daddy’s backyard in the village- I’ll use the hall money for transportation of guests.

    Lovely lovely wedding,the traditional was not large either but very classy. Onyinye danced her heart out. Welcome into the conservative oke-ogun family.

    I agree with the posters above. Their wedding has to be one of the BEST examples of a traditional Igbo wedding I have seen in a long time. They really went TRADITIONAL, but it still had a modern feel to it. Loved her traditional hair style with beauty markings on her face (most Naija brides don’t do this anymore)…and those stunning coral beads. And of course, the groom wearing the chief hat!!

    **I’m taking notes for my future Igbo wedding, LOL**

    I love! Love this wedding…Simplicity, class,intimacy. I keep saying it, I don’t want a concert for a wedding…..I really don’t want it. This naija that you’d invite one friend and he or she would bring 5 people along #NotHappeningByGodsGrace
    When I do my wedding in Paris,let me see how you’ll bring those friends along naa -_-
