BRIDAL INSPIRATION (01)

Hello guys. I’m sure you’d have noticed by now that a new post goes up on the blog every Thursday. Yep! I intend to make it as consistent as possible. That said, post release days are now Thursdays.

Recently, I had a shoot (it was an exhausting but fun shoot, trust me) with an amazing photographer, Lanre Ayilegebe ofย Lanre Ayilegebe Photography. I created four looks, three of which are bridal and would be put up in different posts.The last look would come up in another post.

The first Bridal Inspired look depicts the typical Nigerian Yoruba bride, who would usually wear a lace (or aso-oke) Iro and Buba, and an aso-oke head-tie, popularly known as the gele. In our case, my bride was dressed in a royal blue lace buba and a bright yellow aso-oke gele, with matching beaded accessories.

DISCLAIMER:

Please know that your makeup doesn’t necessarily have to match whatever colors you choose to rock on your big day (some TV shows would even attest to that). As a matter of fact, it is advisable to have a trial session with your makeup artist before that day.
