Maryam Augie, daughter of Justice Amina Augie, wed Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin on her 30th birthday anniversary. The wedding took place at the Emir’s Palace Argungu, Kebbi State, while the double celebration of their union and the bride’s birthday held at Blue Velvet Marquee, Abuja.
The tent was opulently decorated – fitting for the accomplished couple. A regal floral chandelier graced the ceiling, while candles on the tables added romance. The drapery of the tent itself also reflected on the fabric on the chairs, was majestic and made every guest feel special.
Comedian I Go Dye performed at the event, while Banky W and Waje sang and danced to everyone’s delight. Bolanle Olukanni hosted the event.
George Okoro Photography captured all the special moments, from the bride opening her gifts, to getting ready for one of the biggest occasions of her life, glammed by one of Nigeria’s most sought after MUAs, Mamza Beauty, and finally, the event itself.
The Cannon Photography also caught the magic of the tent in his lens before the guests arrived.
