The Wedding between TV personality, Dolapo Oni and Enterpreneur/Son of Late Ooni of Ife, Prince Adegbite Sijuwade held on the 10th October, 2015 in London. While there were earlier stated rumors that the bride would grace the aisle in an Elle Saab couture dress, she went for a simple, yet elegant piece by Hollywood’s royalty designer, Romona Keveza instead.
What got me tripping about this gown is its uniqueness; just different. I totally like the cut of the monostrap and the idea of the belt.
The gown also features a detachable veil.
The dress definitely flashes our memory back to Tina Knowles’ dress when she tied the knot with Richard Lawson in April 2015
Although Tina’s gown seems to be the combination of these two runway designs...
Dolapo decided to break the norm and opted for a jumpsuit instead of a second/reception dress. The jumpsuit was made by a Lebanese designer Krikor Jabotian. The jumpsuit features floral details at the top and some sort of draped cape at the bottom.
Although I wouldn’t say this jumpsuit caught much of my attention, I’m sure we would be seeing many more brides going down the ‘jumpsuit’ path.
The bridesmaids also stunned in Elvira Jude’s strapless peplum dresses (that's pretending not to notice that other LADY...)
The groom went for a custom made suit. I particularly love the cream vest and the other details like the tie pin and lapel flower/pin.
He also switched things up alongside his bride for the reception...
... and the groomsmen! I think they looked just right. The grey vest, blue suit and the other details all add up quite nicely in my eyes.
Their pre-wedding photos got me singing….oh na na na na na….
Celebrity photographer, TY Bello sure does really good stuff. Super creative.
What are your thoughts guys?
