I had just done a shoot for Sparkle of https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sparkle-Fashion-Store/40950126323 when my phone rang. It was Debbie all the way from the states demanding that I keep her date free for her wedding.
This was about a year ago. Run into the future and what you see is the result of that demand.
Debbie and Tunjiro ( grudging congrats by the way on Chelsea’s victory) got married in April at the Civic Centre in Ibadan. It was a beautiful ceremony. I have not seen two families like this yet in any wedding i have covered. There was a vivid desire to be together on all the faces of the family members.
I have tried to show all the moments I captured in this wedding. I couldn’t show you all here. It was that kind of wedding…….
Makeup: Arinlade Makinde – 08051841846
Reception venue: Ibadan Civic Centre
Decoration: Dexterity Plus
I always say always sweat the small stuff in a wedding. They make the day tick…………….obviously both Tj and Debbie loved quality.
Tunji started the day organising the little details from his phone.
and at the brides camp it was everyone getting ready so as to look perfect.
and we had a bride who obviously was cool about the whole proceedings
Kemi was simply not going to be outdone o
As the groom got ready to step into his suit , the business end of the day was kicked in.
but you could tell he was not fazed by what was ahead as he was well supported by good friends.
Over at Debbie’s the final touches where being applied.
Hadiza Musa quietly got herself ready in her corner.
Just as our beautiful maid of honor was being readied as well.
Looking at this picture again that was supposed to be a “godfather” like pose, in retrospect i ask, is the Godfather supposed to smile?
Debbie was almost set and she looked glorious Behold the bride!!!! and the groom was all smiles! This picture is going to be a classic. I am going to look at this picture in 60years and show it to these group and they will tell their kids see how sassy we were? Tunji was so relaxed. It was like he was home and it helped that he has so many friends around him from the young to the old. The decoration was made even better by the one thing that i brought to this place. …. . Spot the difference. and brace yourself. It was a huge crowd here……People from all over the country and outside it. From here it was dance, dance, dance to the couples entry and continuously. the emotions of my baby is going and my dad has sent me on to another dad can be overwhelming. Mummy, i caught her? Or what exactly was this joke shared? The Moments of a wedding….:) The Fight For a Bouquet!!!! Examine all the facial constructions and laugh your ribs off. And just when MC thinks he can claim the winner for himself, the Chairman creeps up and claims the microphone to try his luck. Unfortunately she was claimed and after the vote of thanks… try he did with the Maid of honour……. I enjoyed my time at this wedding. Tj is a great guy and an ardent Chelsea supporter ( unfortunately). I wish he was a Manchester United Fan, he would have just been perfect. Now i will be forced to plant a picture of Alex Ferguson all over his album just to spite him………….(tongue out). lol
