The Benin Yoruba Traditional Wedding Of Obehi and Tayo

Obehi and Tayo are a very beautiful couple. They get themselves absolutely. There is this level at which they communicate that flies over your head and you see love cocooning them as they move about.

Tayo was obviously determined to get Obehi her dreams as they prepared for the wedding together and one of those things which he delivered was her desire to have great photographs for their wedding.

Obehi started the morning the calm bride that she is. She had the fortunate company of two exciting young women, her friends who had crossed seven seas and seven rivers to see her get married; Naz and Shannit.

Shannit is an Ethiopian, and like we know about Ethiopians, she was so beautiful it hurt the eyes to look at her. Naz was an exciting young Morrocan woman who lectured me on the marriage cultures of the Morrocans and how they change their dresses seven times in the course of their traditional weddings. WOW!!! Seven times!! That beats all I have seen in Nigeria. The peace that was on the face of Obehi was quickly submerged as Naz and Shannit came into the room to watch her made up. From then, she couldn’t help herself as they quietly unleashed their mischieviousness on her. She just kept on laughing and laughing.  I told ya…. Naz and Shannit rocked their gele. They looked fab!!  Was this baby carrying classes? And then this gorgeous sister. wow!! 

Obehi had to show us she was the elder one. LOL 🙂

Tayo could not wait to get married. He was all focus and smiles. And as he came into the hall, i must confess, I did not know he could dance so much.
