Efe and Oyin had a unique wedding.
Their signature was on their day and this is something you do not find easily in Nigerian weddings.
You will notice that the pictures are built around the groom. This was the express instruction of the bride who wanted her pictures to start from when she was fully dressed contrary to the popular culture.
You will also notice something only a daring groom will do. He walked to church.
There was uniqueness in the whole day and this yielded some beautiful pictures.
Just see these photographs…….
When the night breaks into morn.
and the circle of love ushers in a new dawn
Separating the night from the day.
While on your bed you lay
and to you they say
It is your day of love
Smile and be joyful
for the light of love illuminates you.
As thou preparest
And as the day begins in earnest
Be thou focused on one thing alone
The reason this day is special
As you take your first steps
On a journey you cannot predict
Realize, some days will be hot
Some days fought
Some days you will be alone
But when you remember the reason for this day
Then step out and be glad
For of all things Love lasts for ever.
You will reach for the stars and take them
Together you will smile and be glad
Together, helping each other, you will find peace and harmony. knowledge and understanding A knowledge of each other understanding that teaches tolerance and usher in bliss. As you walk into the future hand in hand Even when friends are missing Or not Together you will reach your destination Finally………………Mirth!
There was something about Efe and Oyin that inspired the poet in me. I cannot say what exactly.
