Have you ever wondered why exactly we put so much effort into celebrating the start of a marriage with a wedding ceremony? It is believed that a well-thought out and lovingly conducted ceremony takes you through a gateway. Metaphorically through the words and gestures of your ceremony, you move with greater intention from one phase of your life to the next. One way of being into another. A wedding ceremony is not merely saying, “I do.” A wedding ceremony should be a catalyst that allows two individuals to really ‘get’ that they are stepping forward into a life that is shared.
For Ogochukwu and Abiodun, their wedding was a thing to be remembered forever as they not only bought together their family and friends but they also united two tribes, Igbo and Yoruba. Planned by The Skivvy Events, their wedding was a fulfilled and merry ceremony.
To show off their cultural heritages, the couple dressed in traditional attires for both Yoruba and Igbo. For the Yoruba, the bride wore an embellished aso oke iro and buba with gele by Mos Modes Aso oke while Abiodun wore agbada with sokoto and buba. The couple later switched up their attires for the Igbo traditional outfits with Ogochukwu going for the two wrapper and blouse style by Jane Michael Collection.
Ogochukwu was glammed up by Raviahin Make up and photography by Klala photography.
