    Tentative wedding date – July 18,2015. (This might change due to circumstances beyond my control but, it’s definitely in the month of July.)

    Wedding Venue: Beautiful State of California, USA.
    There are various reasons we chose California, the most important reason being that it’s my parents primary residence. My father will love to see me get married in his comfort zone and I am daddy’s little queen :). California, is a beautiful place and made the decision quite easy. At least, I didn’t have to worry about the weather when choosing the date lol.

    Mr. Akin, I have been a silent admirer of your work for the longest. It’s obvious you love and enjoy your work and it will be a great honor for my fiancé and I to have you cover our wedding. We got you on all you need to be a prima donna on that day. Loool. Thanks Bella for this thoughtful opportunity for your readers outside of Nigeria.

    I’m having a summer wedding in Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city, which is one of the most fascinating cities in the world, and has been for centuries. I decided to have my wedding in the amazing bosphorous area of Istanbul overlooking the Bosphorus bridge where Europe meets Asia mainly because asides the fact that I’m Muslim and as such will be having a nikkah ceremony and having it in the historic Blue Mosque will only be a dream come true for me, I always knew I ddnt want anything cliché for my big day and would love to wed somewhere historic yet interesting and dreamy, where I can create fun memories together with my family and friends.

    I want to look back at my wedding pictures and smile over and over again and would absolutely love Akintayo to cover my wedding, I’ve seen his works and I think he’s a genius . My wedding date is August 8 In Sha Allah.

    Getting married in zanzibar. A local photographer is $850 for 5 hrs. A flight from nigeria is mininum $1000 to zanzibar. Truly I am just saying I am sure the costs for travel are comparable unless your destination is Ghana. But thats none of my business though.

    • NaijaPikin

      August 12, 2014 at 12:28 am

      Not quite oh…..In yankee photog for 1 day is about $4000. Flight ticket cannot pass $2500. If it’s off season (like feb) you can even find tix for $800 self. So there are a couple of variables to consider to see if its worth it for an individual.

    My fiancé and I will be having an intimate garden wedding ceremony and reception in Dubai on February 14th, 2015. We chose Dubai because we got engaged in Dubai on February 14th, 2014. Hence, coming back to the same place, exactly one year after the proposal to say our vows on a Valentine-day Saturday sparks a perfect date for us! Reveling in the beautiful memories of our Valentine day engagement, Dubai will be just perfect especially with the crisp cool weather and calm ambience during this period.

    We have been a big fan and avid admirer of AkinTayoTimi’s photography works, and we are convinced that his team will add glamour and poise to our Valentine-day themed wedding.

    Am having an outdoor wedding in Banjul, The Gambia because the outdoor setting creates a casual feel that allows you and your guests to relax and enjoy the ceremony. My wedding should be – December 28th 2014 or January 3rd 2015 (still deliberating on the exact date), Photos from the wedding ceremony are extremely important to a couple. They are the physical memories that the couple carries from the ceremony. Therefore it would mean so much to me to have AkinTayo to cover my wedding! I’ve been a fan for a longtime now and am sure he’ll do an excellent job.. Instagram name: @masillah… Hope I win!!!!!

    Errrm, some people don’t understand the concept of a destination wedding, if you live in toronto and your wedding is in toronto or in SA and your wedding is in the winelands that doesn’t count as a destination wedding. I think the point is picking a place other than where you live to determine what. Inspired the choice of location

    • NaijaPikin

      August 12, 2014 at 6:32 pm

      I believe in this case, BN just means outside naija

  22. Read twice

    August 12, 2014 at 7:24 pm

    I concur with @Naijapikin on this one. The factor here is outside Nigeria @justsayingtho

  23. tobiloba

    August 12, 2014 at 8:26 pm

    I agree with @JustSayingTho. It can’t be called a destination wedding if it takes place where you live. Abeg BN, clarify.

  24. B'noise

    August 12, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    For clarification, my Man and I live in Lagos. Both families too. So does Winesland count? Yes!

    @b’noise yes it counts my dear. I know the photographer and that’s what he told me

    Wedding date: 4th September, 2015

    I chose this coastal town of Kenya because the weather is always nice and warm, and the beach and palm trees would make for the best, most scenic backdrop. The hotels there are beautiful as well.
    I absolutely love AkinTayoTimi’s work. I’ve followed him work on Instagram for a while now and I’m always blown away by his photography.
    Good luck to all us brides-to-be!

    have been with my bf since 14yrs now..still yet no wedding date…is my fauit any way..i will be the happiest person if my wedding pics will be on this blog one day ..when i am ready ..

  34. Dami"CERTIFIED"

    August 17, 2014 at 12:43 am

    Lovely concept @akintayotimi & Bella. Some of us are yet to be hooked. Surely, my time will come and i will certainly marry MINE… In whose rib i was created from, my soul mate, my best friend & confidant. I hope when it’s that time, i’ll get such offers. I wish everyone who is getting married soon the very best of wedlock! My last advice to us ladies either hooked or not, please we all need to learn how to be patient. When you get married you need to learn how to be patient, when you are single, we need to be patient. I’m not saying this because i’m perfect, i have come to realize that not all has this virtue… we therefore don’t usually get the very best, All the best to every bride out there!

    For me, this sounds like my great opportunity from bellanaija.com and AkinTayoTimi. My partner and I are planning on a yacht reception wedding in the fascinating city of Dubai. It is definitely a memory I wish to hold on to forever and through the lens of one of our country’s best photographers. I’m clueless about a photographer at the moment. We are scheduling our wedding for May 2015 (still haven’t fixed a date yet) and I’d love to be a winner of this one.
    Thanks

    I and my loving Fiancee will be getting married on the 11th of October 2014 at Yaba Presbyterian church and reception follows at (National Institute for Sports) National Stadium Onikan. Lagos. Choosing a venue was quite intriguing and time consuming but fun because we had a lot to consider i.e capacity, proximity, parking space, availability and beauty eventually we settled for the National stadium since it ticked a lot of the criteria for us. we would really love to win this photography package, never won any thing before except for winning the Groom heart 🙂
