Every moment of this #ZiraZira2017 wedding was Pinterest worthy, from the decor by the bride’s company to her amazing dresses and the rest of the #AsoEbiBellas at the ceremonies (see their photos here).

Mother’s Night

White Wedding

Church Ceremony


Traditional Wedding

Venue; Bride’s Father’s House in Kaduna

A Traditional Dance

Originally from Adamawa, the bride Zira performed a traditional dance on this day. In the pictures below, you’ll see her grinding maize on a grinder (stone) used in the olden days. This is to show that she is able to take care of her husband and family. However, the groom and his friends have to spray money on the wrapper the bride is to walk on to get to the grinding stone.

    Can someone please explain that grinding stone thing to me, it looks interesting

      I don’t know about the this culture specifically, but I’m guessing this is a day (or few days) after the wedding when she was taken to her in-laws home (her new home and family); she is supposed to show proof that she is a homely bride who can cook (her family is kind off showing her off to say ‘ we raised a good girl”). In some other northern cultures she’d be required to make tuwo, others require the bride and her friends to sweep the entire family home of their in-laws in the morning. So i’m guessing in this case she is attempting to grind the corn flour (which we all can see was already ground…lol). It is mostly just a formality. I may be wrong sha.

    Wow!!! All her dresses were just très bellè!! I thought the pictures were never going to end.
    She has a very calm and serene look about her. Maybe because she is matured than most young brides who are featured here

    This is so beautiful.

    Hey BellaNaija Weddings, here’s an idea; a series on different marriage rites in Nigeria. Never knew about this maize thing until now, it’s also not clear what it signifies.
    So, how the Yorubas do it, any differences between people from Oyo and people from Ekiti. What the Itsekiri, Jaba and Idoma people do.
    Looking forward to it.
