When it comes to throwing the most indulging beachside welcome party on Athens Riviera, Nigeria does it the best!

“Hold your true love with both hands”, says a Nigerian proverb, and according to Ibi, Eruba is the man who embodies every single quality she’s ever dreamt in a husband! His wedding proposal made our beauty swoon, and their upcoming Athens destination wedding in Athens had her heart skip a beat. It wasn’t the first time we’d be capturing a Nigerian wedding in Greece, hence our conviction this was going to be a serious party. And boy! how right we were!

Ibi & Eruba’s three-day wedding celebrations were an absolute delight, and it all began with a sleek, beachside welcome party on Athens Riviera. Yes, when it comes to parties and weddings it’s safe to say Nigeria does it the best! Scroll for the scoop!

It was a sizzling hot morning in Athens and early in the day, the team of The 12 Events had the scene set for the party. Plush cushions, loungers, and peacock seating came seamlessly together with exotic touches, boho teepees, and birds of paradise at the beach of Ble Azure. The powder-soft sands and the cool clear waters of the private beach so inviting, and the icy champagne and aperitivos even more so! Now, you may have an idea how much Nigerians love color but one needs to photograph a Nigerian wedding beach party to see what pulling the perfect luxury beach-dressing mix and match is! We literally wanted to copy every style of swim piece and sarong, gorgeous hatting, and insanely vibrant layering!

As for the dance moves, we seriously wanted to drop our cameras and join in! But better allow these awesome party shots to tell the tale!
