BN Weddings: Lydia and Uyi’s Exquisite Abuja Wedding is a Rich Display of Cultural Beauty #LeeAndUyi



Remember the goofy pre-wedding photos of Lydia and Uyi we shared some weeks ago? Click here if you missed it.

Lydia tied the knot to her sweetheart Uyi, the proprietor of Moscow, an Abuja based club, on the 2nd of December 2017 in the lovely city of Abuja.

The groom fell in love with his bride the moment he set his eyes on her and their love has flourished with each passing day.

The ceremony festivities kicked off with the groom paying the bride price to his in-laws according to the Efik tradition and the bride’s family accepting him to their family. Lydia changed from her Efik attire to her Bini attire, which symbolized that she was now traditionally engaged to Uyi.

Lydia looked amazing in her Efik traditional attire and her white wedding dress. Uyi looked dapper in his ivory tuxedo too.

The beautiful white wedding reception had friends and families in attendance who came to celebrate with the couple. There was a surprise music performance by 2Baba which had everyone dancing.

    Very beautiful and lots of money went into this. Wish them success.
    On a side note how do brides do it on their big day to manage to look jolly? I was already tired and overwhelmed just looking at pictures for 2 mins let alone if that was my wedding…

      Kole, there’s this exhilarating feeling you get when months and months of excruciating mind-numbing planning comes together beautifully. Especially when the resultant effect exceeds your expectations and well heeled guests come up to you to express how they’ve been blown away by the venue, the food, the organisation etc etc. I just can’t explain it but you’ll be walking on air for a few days.

    Maybe I’m reaching, but this bride is really something. She seems likes such a generous and good person. Her bridesmaids wore white; a move that so many brides would dispute because its their day. Also, her bouquet was not a single bouquet but a collection of many roses; which I take means that there is one for as many people as want to be next. She wants to share her blessings. And she’s so elegant and simple, no outfit change at the reception, no gaudy decorations and she’s just beaming. I might be exaggerating things, but I feel like these micro behaviours speak volumes.
