Omaz_Mofe Bamuyiwa_Glam Your Wedding Dress_ New Photos_ BellaNaija_2016_6945-EditIntroducing the Glam Your Wedding Dress project created by vibrant Nigerian wedding photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa for BMB Photography.

The idea behind the project was to create a platform for brides who are married and may have been unable to have fantastic portraits of themselves on their wedding day.

After advertising the idea on her Instagram page, 2008 Bride Omaz Ngbarony of Omaz Pro-Beauty flew to Lagos from Calabar to be apart of this project.

Below are both old and new portraits of the bride and also a few words on her experience.

Omaz_Old White Wedding Photos_ Glam Your Wedding Dress Project_ 2016_ Mofe Bamuyiwa_ 1BellaNaija Weddings: How was your experience?

Omaz: My experience of the Glam Your Wedding Dress project is something I would have never thought of, despite the fact that I have always wished to have photos of how brides of today look.
During my wedding in 2008, things were pretty casual, as opposed to how elaborate and gorgeously dressed brides are today. It wasn’t as common for a bride to consider professional makeup and extra detailing in her dress at the time. Omaz_Old White Wedding Photos_ Glam Your Wedding Dress Project_ 2016_ Mofe Bamuyiwa_ 6BNW: What excited you the most?

Omaz: When Mofe called and hinted me of her plans, I felt like I had finally been given the chance to look like a princess. What struck me the most at the time was I was about to experience a full blown makeover by a professional, wear the wedding dress of my dreams and not the one forced upon me and I also get pampered – priceless! It felt wonderful, I was more relaxed than my wedding day because I had already experienced a good marriage and I have kids, I just felt accomplished.

Omaz: It was a wonderful experience, especially seeing how all these talented vendors work so well together with so much happiness and zeal. Mofe’s creativity and passion transformed me into a princess and after viewing over 50 pictures, they were all beyond my imagination, it didn’t feel real.

Omaz_Old White Wedding Photos_ Glam Your Wedding Dress Project_ 2016_ Mofe Bamuyiwa_ 2BNW: How did you feel overall?

Omaz: Overwhelmed! Only God knows how a size 8 dress fitted me but I can assure you it was favour, because it made me feel special – I’m still thinking about it lol. I am also very grateful to Mofe for thinking this through and creating images that no words can describe.

    Aww how lovely! I did like her original wedding pictures though. I guess it captured reality as it was then!

    Interesting idea. I agree with B, there’s nothing wrong with the first wedding look. It reflects the time she wedded and the new look though fine will also be dated in 10years time.

      Agreed.

      Her new photos are fabulous and darn she’s fiiiiiiiiine!

      For me, I got married almost 12yrs ago and love my silly, goofy “anyhow” photos. Each time I look at them, I can remember the sounds, the smell, the sights, the feelings of the exact moment.
      And I won’t have it any other way. 🙂

      I liked her in the first wedding pic.
      She was gorgeous. She has a beautiful face too.
      The new one is nice but dramatised.

      I defo loved the first one. xxx

      2008 tho, the year I entered uni, was so excited until I graduated and realty kicked in. lol

    Lovely, lovely pics. However, the year, time, era etc you get married is part of your story. I personally don’t see the need to do this. And this article didn’t clearly state if it was the same dress revamped. Focused more the need to have perfect pics.

    I love the concept.

    How i looked when i got married stays the same, reason being that you can glam up all u like but you can never buy back those magic moments. this is why we need to respect special events in our lives and not try to make them look like what’s in vogue. I love her innocent wedding look. Now, she looks like every other bride on bella, instagram, twitter and facebook.

    WOW! Are you sure that is the same person??? Doesn’t even look like it. Interesting how the skin tone changed.

      Skin tone didn’t change,it is called photography LIGHTING.She has always been a beautiful black beauty right from secondary school,FGGC Owerri. Saw two months back still the same colour. She is a talented make up artist also.

    Wooooow!! Omaz my Pic, you look glam, the new wedding dress is legendary, I want too…!

    Lovely pictures but I prefer the 2008 pictures….she captured the simplicity and innocent beauty a bride is supposed to have. Sometimes, less is more. The hair in the second set of pics is a bit too much for me. Gorgeous girl regardless…..

    If you want a second look, just renew your vows. I feel that nothing can replace the first picture. Btw she looks nice in the new picture.

    In ten years from now, she will need another “revamping” cos trust me, the trend changes all the time.
    Love your wedding photos, be it from 50 years ago or from 2016 cos the photos represents what bridal fashion meant at the time, and it also holds alot of memory.

    The new photos and revamped dress is beautiful, but will there be an update anytime the trend changes?

    all i see is her hairstyle and she is so pretty!
