Seyi and her mum approached me close to a year ago now in respect to this wedding. I remember meeting them at a fast food along the Gbagada express way to finalise many hours of phone talk and seal the date for Seyi and Daniel’s wedding.
Seyi had this beautiful surname. Such a beautiful name that giving it away must have been love. This was a cross cultural wedding in all ramifications with strong elements of the Yoruba race mixing with the Igbo peoples way of doing things. There were also strong influences from the Ghanaian people and finally the spectre of the Portuguese hung low above all that was done. Difficult to fathom right? Trust me I feel the same way.
This whole ceremony started from the day when Daniel met Seyi and proposed with a confident ‘ I give you this ring……
From then on of course the preparation for this day had started. Seyi did not wait for Sitpretty to start work on her face to know she was already preparing for her wedding day.
Daniel was a man in love. He pulled his entire family from the east of Nigeria to come and prove that love to Seyi.
And as Seyi sat eagerly getting ready to show her self to her husbands people, Daniel was walking into the arena of love with a smile on his face…………What he was thinking? Ask him………Daniel! What where you thinking? I have not told you guys this but I can read minds. Not every mind though, just those of people older than me. These men’s minds were thinking, Seyi has done us proud. This is fine stock.
Seyi’s mom on the other hands was thinking, What a handsome young man. My daughter obviously heard all I told her well.
Remember the Ghanaian influence i told you about? Look properly.
Of course, Ibo or not when you come for a Yoruba woman’s hand in marriage you lie face down to beg for it………………..
Meanwhile, the sisi was taking her time to get ready inside.
…………and, Isn’t she lovely? Seyi was in a hurry. She practically ran out to meet her groom 😉 This lovely couple had time for their photographs. Seyi kept saying she was not ready to compromise on this. See their photographs together below.
