A few days ago BN gave you the scoop about Solange Knowles getting married over the weekend to her boyfriend Alan Ferguson in a quiet ceremony – well, the wedding has happened and we have a look inside her glorious weekend for you.

The weekend started off with a rehearsal dinner, then the wedding ceremony itself and then the reception.

It was a colourful event with all the guests dressed in white as well as the couple. Of course, Beyoncé made an appearance with Jay Z (and they looked so cute together too).

Check out pictures from her day!

    OMG! I love this wedding. If only I could have such a classy/vintage wedding…but no it ain’t happening, all the amala-eating family and friends won’t let me. **sobs**

      It heavily depends on your negotiating skills
      I got married on a wednesday in zanzibar with 50 guests. Yes i live in Lagos.

      I almost died of laughter when I read this comment. I truly wish my wedding was like this but hells na!!! My hubby’s family just had to have their “owambe”.

    • ATL's finest

      November 17, 2014 at 2:18 pm

      Lmao @ Owambe Chaiii that’s d problem oo.. Location & numbers of guest!!! Every chance they get to party, it becomes theirs :)..

    • miss pynk

      November 17, 2014 at 9:57 pm

      I had an wambe trad. I decided to just show up to my own trad the saturday before the formal. 1200 guests, i let them do what they want, hence the negotiating skills. My entire formal in a 5 star resort was the cost of the hall in lagos with the free plastic chairs. And oh yeah i had a full asian buffet complete with sushi and sashimi too, go figure. And my formal reception went out with a bang of musical chairs, which the guests took a little too seriously. My yoruba owambe father is still busy telling everyone who will listen how at 64 ,he won the limbo challenge at the formal.

      to those asking for it to be shared on bellanaija, I unfortunately wont be doing that as my husband is private and it wasnt a”society” shebang. However pieces of it will show up on my blog from time to time.

      That “magnificent” wedding with the food dispensers and all white decor from a few weeks back was the same thing. Not every event is a naija dissing event. Their wedding guests also wore white. Calm down

    • ynnon

      Didn’t Tiwa Savage wear white during her traditional wedding?

    • Ona

      November 17, 2014 at 5:31 pm

      Lmao @ white rice.

      TBH, i have always wanted an unconventional wedding theme like this….down to the white bike with white flowers attached….soooo me! However i dont see that happening given that my boo’s family are definitely already talking about a big ass wedding, plus he’s the only son and his dad is a public figure. As much as i like going to naija functions, i have always dreaded the big, typical naija weddings….i have always wanted something intimate, small and me. He could care less whether its a big wedding or we went to the court house as long as im happy. My family could care less really, but his family will def be disappointed.

    oh! she wore three dresses. Solange seems like a jumpsuit freak. LOL.
    I love the last look best. and her hurrrr…..
    I love how simple the whole thing was. Im an advocate for simplicity. Gosh i hate all the pomp and display and elaborate ceremonies!.
    The all white thing tho…a bit creepy.
    BN pls update the page. There are a lot of other pictures 😀

    • Surely

      November 17, 2014 at 10:47 am

      She wore 3 jumpsuits and a dress, not 3 dresses. Ugh. You’re one of the people that call short dresses gowns I’m sure.
      So all white is creepy because all you know is Nollywood and Celestial (cele) tinz LOLLL

    • Idomagirl

    The first pics I saw yesterday …got me like..solange ,bicycles,cape!not surprised !but these others the poses ,et al;hmnnn not sure its something to be comfortably fancying;first it’s new Orleans,(voodoo),she’s from Houston Texas ,its not like she even lives in Louisiana!I mean accepted New Orleans represents old school cool and vintage (and juju)they got money she could enact the scene wherever:but again no be Solange?lol,she’s always been cuckoo ‘kinda’ spiritually(and of course spiritual sister Janelle Monae was around)…#justsaying.

    • ATL's finest

      November 17, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    This is what I love about our Western people. They have money, but whenever they have an event, they keep it simple and on the low, yet classy and beautiful. But as for our people, the competition among us will not let us do that. We will always overdo and go overboard, and most of us don’t even have money like that. They overdo it because they want outdo a friend or should I say an enemy…Africans will never learn the good the things from the West, only that which is bad. I have said my piece…don’t crucify me abeg

    Love her dress especially the long dress she wore on family photo.it looked 60’s /70’s style with the egyptian armband.congratulation dear.simple but classy

  32. Gorgeous

    November 17, 2014 at 4:02 pm

    She is creole, so Louisiana is her roots. And yes they are big on voodoo. Which may be the reason for the white clothes or that may just be her general theme. Solange is just like me. I like different. If it is not different or not the norm, i feel too watered down. I love her wedding and i wish her a very happy married life. Shes a beautiful gal and i am glad she has found love. The whole wedding concept is wonderful. So intimate and her own personalized wedding.

      Not true, if he’s very clean and uses the right products for it it won’t smell…same way your afro (if you have one) doesn’t automatically smell when you sweat. It’s all about hygiene and maintenance…

    November 17, 2014 at 6:48 pm

    I wonder what the comment session would be like If she wasn’t a celeb or known to be wealthy . Some myopic “mentalities” will be saying she doesn’t have money that why she had such wedding.
