A TOTALLY GLAM NIGERIAN WEDDING ON ATHENS RIVIERA WITH 400 GUESTS AND ONE OF THE BEST-DRESSED GROUP OF WEDDING GUESTS
When Oscar Ibru’s son Ebruba is tying the knot with an absolutely elegant Nigerian beauty like Ibiyiinka you can only expect this Nigerian luxury wedding on Athens Riviera to be nothing sort of dashing! And if there is anyone who knows utter style and sophistication on a wedding day, then let us say that Nigeria does it the best!
Exquisite style is what we have been dreaming of pretty much every hour of the day, and if you can’t have enough of milky whites and all-encompassing shine then this totally glam Nigerian wedding on Island Residence designed and styled by The 12 Events is your go to!
Ibiyiinka and Ebruba came all the way from Lagos to exchange their I Do’s in Athens and to join them on this incredible journey came four hundred super-stylish friends and kin from London and the U.S.
Their big day began early in a swirl of preparations on their hotel suites while our team staged an absolutely lush ceremony on the incredible grounds of Ble Azure, a verdant peninsula that takes wedding magic to a whole new level. A sweep of mirror installations white blooms and greenery was placed before an optic-white ceremonial arch, overflowing with white florals and turned into a beautiful garden-inspired backdrop. In lieu of pews white infinity chairs- an absolute must for an ultra chic celebration- were amphitheatrically placed to engulf the couple’s pasty aisle.
If you haven’t attended a Nigerian wedding then you certainly are remiss; soon this open-air venue was teeming with superb wedding guest fashion -think off-this-world headpieces and haute couture for days. The perfect accessory for this uber-hot day? an array of white wooden parasols!
As the couple’s piano soloist tuned to the sweetest wedding music Ibiyiinka and Ebruba’s 14 maids of honor and groomsmen lead the way for the ravishing bride’s walk down the aisle to her groom.
Nothing spells classic style more than all-enveloping whites and this bride and groom’s decor came straight out of a dream (and enough to have you think twice about going overboard with your wedding color palette).
