Bolu+Tosin: The Landmark Event Centre, Lekki, Lagos

When I put up a blog post, I try to tell the story of the wedding or shoot I am blogging the way I witnessed the day.  This is one day that words will fail me to describe while writing. You might need to call me for me to tell you the story as it is.

I have a list of favourite brides and grooms. I pray for them all the time and I can tell you, Bolu and Tosin are on that list. These two people reminded me how it feels to be loved and how to feel in love in a relationship. If you click on this Link, you will see their pre wedding session and how beautiful they were.

When their wedding day came, I was excited and eager to watch this beautiful couple get joined in holy matrimony. Come on this journey of love and see it with me.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 001 (Side 1)It started early in the morning as they all start. With the sun rising beautifully in the east, the bride woke up to the sound of music that ushered in a day she was never to forget. The day where she wedded Tosin Adewumi, the man who had stolen her heart and given his in exchange.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 002 (Side 2)As a demonstration of that love, he sent her red roses first thing in the morning and how much she smiled at the sight as she got ready for her wedding day, putting all those little things that so much time and money had been spent on to make the day perfect.
Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 003 (Side 3) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 004 (Side 4) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 005 (Side 5)Bolu had gone on to ensure she was surrounded by her best friends so where ever she turned she had a smiling face and how she made those faces smile with the thank you gift she bought for them.
Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 006 (Side 6)And smile they did.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 007 (Side 7)Meanwhile as Bolu was getting ready, you could see her seriously looking into the future with Bolu and the things they would do together.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 008 (Side 8)Meanwhile, over to Tosin’s, there was a bunch of happy guys, happily celebrating the giving away of their sister. They just were in a hurry to get ready to go help her tie the knot. Why? You will know later. 🙂 Keep reading.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 009 (Side 9)Tosin was all calm and cool about his getting ready.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 010 (Side 10) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 011 (Side 11) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 012 (Side 12)And yes he is the perfect gentleman. He was ready almost as soon as he started. That was how eager he was to be beside Bolu, to say their vows.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 013 (Side 13)These ladies do not hurry when it comes to the matters of beauty. They take their time.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 014 (Side 14)though, honestly that early in the morning, some of us were more concerned with the state of our tummies, than how our lipsticks made us look radiant.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 015 (Side 15)But then, that is not a matter for consideration. The only thing that was up for consideration was Bolu getting ready and how fast she was going about that task. Trust me, she was. She kept saying, I have to be there on time.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 016 (Side 16)So leading her two princesses, Bolu marched out into the hall way of the Eko Hotel, Lagos.
Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 017 (Side 17)Hurrying or not, we quickly took out a little bit of her time to take a few shots of this beautiful bride.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 018 (Side 18) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 019 (Side 19) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 020 (Side 20) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 021 (Side 21) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 022 (Side 22) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 023 (Side 23)and her fun bridal party!  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 024 (Side 24)But we didn’t have much time to do that before we were marching into church hand in hand to witness this beautiful ceremony. Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 025 (Side 25) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 026 (Side 26) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 027 (Side 27)One of the rarest sights however was this. I have seen a lot of brides walk down the aisle with their fathers. What happened in this particular case i do not see a lot. Father and daughter were all smiles as they both strolled into Church. Sharing jokes and laughing giddily.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 028 (Side 28) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 029 (Side 29)That laughter continued when she got to the front of the aisle to stand with Tosin. That tells you all you need to know about the two of them right? Tosin was the perfect replacement of her dad. Her joy did not stop after leaving daddy.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 030 (Side 30) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 031 (Side 31)When the serious parts of the ceremony began, these two happily said their vows to each other.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 032 (Side 32) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 033 (Side 33) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 034 (Side 34)And you usually find members of of the audience who will remember how things were in their time as they married their wives or husbands.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 035 (Side 35)Tosin and Bolu signed off on their certificates with all enthusiasm.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 036 (Side 36)Supported by the pastors signatures, this wedding was officially sealed with evidence.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 037 (Side 37)and all present cheered joyfully  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 038 (Side 38)as the Husband and Wife were presented to the multitude.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 039 (Side 39)After church and those pictures that follow, we went to take photographs of the wedding party at a nearby hotel and we had fun with this awesome set of people.

We walk into the hall and BOOM!!!!!! Ayefele himself, thrilling the crowd.
Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 060 (Side 60)in this beautiful setting!  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 061 (Side 61)It was into that setting that these two beautiful souls stepped into and what dance steps they pulled out of their hats. Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 062 (Side 62)Look at their faces. Funny huhn? Wait! why do we make funny faces when we dance? Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 063 (Side 63) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 064 (Side 64) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 065 (Side 65)One thing you would have noticed about Bolu and Tosin is how much they loved each others company.
Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 066 (Side 66)Look again, even as the chairman was talking, they were busy whispering into each others ears.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 067 (Side 67)The MC and Mrs Folorunsho Alakija had to restate a number of things for them to ensure they had good advice for their future together.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 068 (Side 68) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 069 (Side 69)I have heard a lot about Mrs Folorunsho Alakija, how humble and christianly she is. Here she proved it. Soft spoken and deeply spiritual. She said the prayer for this couple after they had cut their cake and it was a beautiful prayer. . Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 070 (Side 70)It was time for the dancing and it first began with Tosin asking his mom to dance with him for the last time as a bachelor.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 071 (Side 71)What he did not bargain for was the flood of emotions that flowed as tears out of his eyes.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 072 (Side 72) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 073 (Side 73)Only a truly confident man will freely express his emotions with tears.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 074 (Side 74)When it was Bolu’s turn to dance with her father, you could see the love between them and her joy at what he had done, teaching her to find the right man. Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 075 (Side 75)Even dad was proud of her choice, pointing the way confidently at the young man who had taken his daughter’s heart. It was clearly with approval.
Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 076 (Side 76)At the first couple dance, the tenderness between both of them was evident.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 077 (Side 77) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 078 (Side 78) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 079 (Side 79) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 080 (Side 80) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 081 (Side 81)The baby? Leave this story! Let your minds tell you what ever it is it tells you.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 082 (Side 82)Now this is why those two young men were so eager to rush off Bolu. After being used as experiments for her medical journey, having spoons stuffed down their throats, they were in a mood to let someone else try out the skill she had learnt in medical school. Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 083 (Side 83) Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 084 (Side 84)Afterwards came the siblings family photography and the toast by this dapper best man.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 085 (Side 85)…..and then the flying catch! This is one of the finest catches of a thrown bouquet I have seen. Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 086 (Side 86)and the bouquet did not survive the pull and the push! Or did it? Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 087 (Side 87)Finally, Tosin came up to give his vote of thanks and what an emotional speech it was.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 088 (Side 88)Bolu and Tosin had a last surprise for us. Her second dress had a long train! She was not going to let go her chance to wear long trains. She wore it all day.  Akara Ogheneworo_s Blog Template - Tosin and Bolu - Top Nigerian Wedding Photography 089 (Side 89)Tosin and Bolu had a fantastic wedding.
