BellaNaija Weddings presents Layal Holm & Seyi Tinubu’s Dreamy Lake Como Wedding



Layal Holm and Seyi Tinubu tied the knot in 19th-century Villa Erba, Lake Como, Italy on the 10th of August 2016. BellaNaija Weddings was the first to share the couple’s stylish yet understated pre-wedding shoot – click here to see.

Today we’re elated to exclusively present the Tinubus’ wedding!

#LaySey16 was a beautiful celebration with the couple’s friends and family. The bride wore a custom Kosibah dress followed by a stunning mermaid Andrea Iyamah creation while her ladies were in April by Kunbi gowns.

Adekunle Gold serenaded the couple with his best love songs, and their first dance brought many to tears. Olamide also performed his hit songs for the couple and their friends.

The blessed wedding day of #LaySey16 was preceded by an all white soiree, where the couple stood out in black and midnight blue. Godwin Strings amazed the audience with his virtuoso performance, and DJ Obi kept the wedding party dancing ’till dawn.

BellaNaija Weddings wishes Layal and Seyi a beautiful union as One, and a love that will last a lifetime.

    Bellanaija y’all are the most connected blog in Naija, I swear! See as you managed to get an exclusive album of this wedding that was kept so private! You roll with the high and mighty, that’s why I love you! But see wedding oo! So beautiful! And tasteful too. And Villa Erba? Chai, the Tinubus did not come to play! To host an event there no be beans. I wish them all the happiness in the world. They will make gorgeous babies. P.S Usman and Rukky, I see ya!

    Great wedding. It looks so classy and intimate, not the loud swaggering the upper-class are known for.

    I’m going to have a wedding like this. Already got the cake, just looking for a bride

      I like your courage but won’t the cake go bad…always thought the bride comes first but not really, how about u think of getting things like a suit, shoes. These are not perishable, like I’m thinking of getting myself a gown plus Jewellery next month; trusting for the groom. #MayGodBringTheRightOnesSoonest

    When Olamide is performing at corporate events, he doesn’t smile like this. But wen he is at “rich people’s” weddings, his teeth is always all over the play.
    RichPeopleMakeMeWetAndHappy Syndrome.
    Banke (MUA) has that syndrome too. She lives for them.

    • Gbogbo Bigz Girlz

      Banke used to be like that, she’s changed now that lots of rich and celeb brides “don’t give her face”. She smiles very well at not that rich not that famous brides who still patronise her.

      Haha, my BN peeps never disappoint. Lol, Banke is still very much like that. If there’s anything I teach my siblings since we run a successful family business, is to treat each customer the same. Whether you’re Buhari or a normal citizen; equal respect for the client and nothing like eye service. Banke that allegedly, a bride wanted her to do her makeup and had the money ready but being an inquisitive bride, asked why she’s overly pricey. She allegedly stated that she’s paying for her name. That response made the bride use someone else. That to me, if true, is a silly answer. I have seen MUAs give better reasons as to why bridal “make ups” are more pricey than normal event “make ups” (even though I don’t agree); but her answer was irrational. That being said, I don’t get the hype about her makeup, I wouldn’t even let her make me up even if it were for free – I honestly prefer Bimpe Onakoya or Oshewa Beauty, or even Joyce Jacob; or the Mamza Beauty lady who’s based in Abuja. Unsolicited advice: anyone of you who plans to run a business; you can never go far if you look at faces to determine how you’ll act/treat your clients.

    Beautiful couple, classy wedding. May God bless their union, and may it last forever. That Alakija guy is a beast on the lens! Choi!

    Congrats to the newly-wed and enjoy your marriage to the fullest… Well, just to digress a little bit.. If we keep on exporting prosperity to other countries, we will succeed in making Nigeria a hopeless destination. Come to think it; studying, medicare, vacation/””baecation””. wedding, music video, consumer goods and virtually everything that we do/need are done/bought abroad! I think we should put up Nigeria for sale since it has become a “boys quarters” of some sorts…Good afternoon Lagos.
