BN Bridal: Nubian Queen meets English Gent in this Lavender Fields Fantasy | AkintayoTimi

This BN Bridal photo shoot embodies a love story between Akanke and Jim; a Nubian queen meets an English gent. Dreamy meets romance with blue skies, lavender fields, green eyes and caramel skin in this fantasy beautifully captured by the talented AkintayoTimi.

Here’s a little backstory;

One fine Summer’s day, boy meets girl but really only when she lets him think that he saw her first and he is making all the moves. Typical English boy with sweet lyrics, this Nigerian princess expects and demands to be wooed, blown away and taken to dreamy heights.

“All in good time”, our boy Jim says. He wonders “how about I show her just how far and wide my feelings are? Far as these lavender fields are. I’ll show her just how much I would take her breath away. Give her a chance to see what happily ever after would be like if she would take a chance on me.”

Does Akanke say yes? A true gentleman never says, yet we wager that pictures are truer than a thousand words.

“Akanke is the embodiment of elegance, grace and refinement. Like my queen our love is royal so I’ll play the jester in the court of lavender fields. This place so close to my place of birth is everything I need her to understand that she is to me and all I see our love is.”

Our photo shoot is devoted to dreamy loving in the English Summertime setting and dedicated to all those Jims and Akankes out there nurturing the most delicate and precious flower of all… Love.

    These photos look forced and posed. Not natural looking at all. Looks like I’m looking at an editorial. Other than that, I wish them all the best! Happy Married Life!!

      See the problem when you don’t read but just assume? This is an Editorial piece not a real wedding. Even the credits state it.

    Not generalising thouugh, but we can say a large percentage of commenters dont read. they read headlines and their hands starts scratching to write. which automatically means, they type without their brains in action. but how is that possible though ??????????

    I love how Akintayotimi is always finding ways to push the boundaries. He’s one innovative photographer. I remember watching him work at a friend’s wedding back in February. He sure is living up to his title of ‘International Photographer’. Pretty soon Brides Mag, Vogue et al would be calling him for shoots all over. Congrats and Goodluck dear. What a beautiful editorial.
